Years of research at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam into Vincent van Gogh's famous Sunflowers revealed that the painting is in a stable, but fragile state. "That is why we have decided that Sunflowers will no longer travel away from the museum. From now on, this highlight of our collection will stay at home in Amsterdam, available for all our visitors to see every day of the year", museum director Axel Ruger said on the museum's website.
The sunflower labyrinth on the Museumplein to celebrate the opening of the new entrance building to the Van Gogh Museum was a huge success. More than 40 thousand people visited the labyrinth over the weekend.
The Museum Jan van der Togt in Amstelveen has been filled with nearly 5 thousand sunflowers for a private memorial on Wednesday for the family members of those who died in the MH17 disaster nearly a year ago
