A maze made up of 125,000 sunflowers has been set up on the Museumplein in Amsterdam to celebrate the opening of the new entrance hall to the Van Gogh museum. The sunflower labyrinth covers almost half of the Museumplein and everyone is welcome to wander through it on Saturday and Sunday from 09.00 to 17.00.
The entrance building has been officially opened on September 4th. The labyrinth will be open to the public this weekend.
The maze also contains three hidden ‘rooms’ with music, fan art and photographs of the building process. The sunflowers will be handed out to the public on Sunday afternoon between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm.
Van Gogh, who died 125 years ago this July, produced several paintings of a vase of sunflowers who are famous all over the world and extensively reproduced on all kind of products.
