Five Hundred Years of Genius

Da Vinci – The Genius demonstrates the full scope of Leonardo da Vinci’s remarkable genius as a painter, inventor, artist, anatomist, sculptor, engineer, musician and architect. The exhibition features 17 compelling themed areas of Da Vinci’s work, offering visitors an unmatched look inside the mind of the ultimate Renaissance man who laid the groundwork for some of modern society’s most impactful inventions, such as the helicopter, airplane, automobile, submarine, parachute and bicycle.


Italian artisans handcrafted all of the inventions brought to life for Da Vinci – The Genius, using the same techniques and materials from the Renaissance period. Scouring more than 6,000 pages from Da Vinci’s personal notebooks, the Artisans deciphered hidden clues, intentional mistakes and the unique mirror-image writing system that Da Vinci employed to keep his works top secret.


Visitors of Da Vinci – The Genius are invited to embrace the history, theory and objective behind each of Da Vinci’s designs and artworks through engaging and entertaining technologies. Guests will enjoy more than 200 unique pieces including 75 life-size machine inventions, entertaining animations of da Vinci’s most notable Renaissance works and an eye-opening, in-depth analysis of his most famous piece, “Mona Lisa.”


Other highlights include reproductions of “Virgin of the Rocks”, and “The Annunciation”, the controversial new Leonardo discovery “Bella Principessa”, amazing anatomical sketches, the preparatory drawings of the “Anghiari Battle,” and educational animation presentations of “The Last Supper”, displayed at actual size (29 x 14.5ft) where possible, the “Vitruvian Man,” and the “Sforza Horse” sculpture that offer never before seen perspectives on these famous works. Guests also will enjoy a glimpse into da Vinci’s mysterious alphabet and writing techniques as they browse touch-screen versions of his actual codices.



The Secrets of Mona Lisa – Revelaed!

"Point a 240 megapixel camera with 13 color filters spanning the infrared, ultraviolet and normally visible spectra at the Mona Lisa, and what do you get? A whole new painting.”

One highlight of Da Vinci – The Genius is the Secrets of Mona Lisa exhibit, featuring the findings of French scientific engineer and examiner of fine art, Pascal Cotte. Granted unprecedented access to “Mona Lisa” by the French government and the Louvre Museum. Cotte was permitted to take “Mona Lisa” off the wall and out of its frame to conduct a scientific analysis that revealed dozens of secrets about history’s most elusive art piece, all verified and approved by the Louvre Museum curators over a 2 year period. The exhibit showcases Cotte’s studies and 25 of his most compelling revelations, illustrated by 40 super-magnified, high-resolution sectional images exploring every aspect of the work.
