When you read about Dr. Gachet's life at the exhibit, you will see why Theo Van Gogh trusted him to look after his brother Vincent. The museum is very personal and gives you a perspective on the lives of artist at that time and place....More

The doctor's house provides a helpful backdrop to Van Gogh's inspirations to his paintings. Ideally, see the doctor's house and the Maison on the same visit and then visit the Musee d'Orsay afterwards when you can see Van Gogh's interpretations of the village scenes. We...More

Prior to visiting I never knew anything about Paul Gachet. He was quite a character, trained as a doctor and a friend and host to many famous artists. The house is pretty small but it's free entry and well worth an hour of your time.

One got a real feel of what it must have been like when Van Gogh came to visit. There is an atmosphere that has been preserved - highly recommend the detour which is accessible on foot from the main town.

As others have stated it is free, so if you are in Auvers-sur-Oise you might as well go. It is a cute little place with some nice history and when I went they had a very interesting art display. Go and then go to O'rsay...More
