This time, it’s dedicated to the works of Leonardo Da Vinci. Titled ‘Da Vinci Alive: The Experience,' the show will run until November 2.


In an incredibly detailed and complete exhibition of Da Vinci’s works, Da Vinci Alive explores Leonardo’s discoveries as an architect, philosopher, sculptor, scientist, artist, and engineer—masterfully portraying him as the exemplary Renaissance figure.  


Through use of the SENSORY4 system, the exhibition creates a symphony of light, image, and sound, fostering a sensory journey through the dynamic mind of Da Vinci. As 40 high-definition projectors emit over 3000 enormous images, and as each are accompanied by surround sound, they create a unique medium for viewing art.


For any interested in the history and discoveries of Leonardo Da Vinci, ‘Da Vinci Alive’ is an experience that both educates and entertains.
