Da Vinci - The Genius Exhibition at the Mind Museum


Mona Lisa is much more famous than her master. She has been considered as a public property for decades now. We own her, not even the genius behind that piercing smile that keeps on lingering in our minds owns her. It IS a public domain and outside of the copyright protection which made it one of the most replicated image worldwide. And who is the genius behind it? Let's get to know him more in his works.





The Mind Museum, , one of my favorite museums, opened its doors to the Da Vinci – The Genius last September 1, 2013. It has been in the most famed museums in 51 cities around the world. The exhibition reveals that Leonardo Da Vinci is not solely a painter but a genius behind some of the most brilliant ingenuities. The exhibition offers the most comprehensive analysis and interaction with Leonardo Da Vinci’s works.

The 200 exhibit pieces are divided into several themed areas; Military Engineering, Music and Optical, Renaissance Art, Hydraulic and Aquatic, Physics, Flight, Civil, Anatomy and Codices. The guests can explore on the interactive inventions studied from the codices and built in Italy as original pieces provided with well written, authentic and interpretive information to guide the guests on the pieces.

The exhibition makes use of Sensory Learning to provide a better understanding and appreciation of Da Vinci’s works. An example of which are; 3D interactive presentations of his famous works (The Last Supper, Vitruvian Man and the great Sforza Horse sculpture) with never before seen perspectives, a special BBC documentary on the life of Leonardo Da Vinci entitled, The Man Who Wanted to Know Everything, and the hands-on features of some of the pieces.
