A Date with Da Vinci

One way of breaking the monotony of life is by visiting a museum, and that's what I did last night by viewing the most comprehensive traveling exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci  at The Mind Museum.

This premium traveling exhibition is created by world renowned Grande Exhibitions Australia under the kind auspices of the Commune di Roma, Commune di Firenze and Citta di Venezia. This once in a lifetime encounter with the greatest genius of all time is made possible by The Mind Museum, the Philippines’ first world-class science museum.

The exhibit features over 200 pieces of Leonardo da Vinci’s extraordinary works from paintings, war machines, flying machines, to his codices, leaving one inspired and in awe of what one human being can do with the power of his mind.

The interactive experience will immerse guests in Da Vinci’s timeless brilliance through full-scale interpretations of the mastermind’s inventions and unparalleled studies of his iconic art. The exhibition features 13 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.

The Mind Museum aims is to give their guests an extraordinary experience that inspires them to understand nature. Visitors to 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.

Many exhibits are interactive and could be pushed, pulled and touched for better understanding. Other highlights include reproductions of “Virgin of the Rocks”, “The Annunciation”, the controversial new Leonardo discovery “Bella Principessa”, amazing anatomical sketches, the preparatory drawings of the “Anghiari Battle,” and video presentations of “The Last Supper,” the “Vitruvian Man,” and the “Sforza Horse” sculpture that offer never before seen perspectives on these famous works.

Guests will also enjoy a glimpse into da Vinci’s mysterious alphabet and writing techniques as they browse touch-screen versions of his actual codices.
