For the past eight years, Explore Communications has worked with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, helping them to promote their traveling exhibitions. On March 1, 2019, DMNS opened its newest exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius.

This exhibition is one of the most comprehensive exhibitions about Leonardo da Vinci ever created. The story of Leonardo is told through a variety of experiences that illustrate why he was the ultimate Renaissance man.

The creators of this experience, Grande Exhibitions, collaborated with the Museo Leonardo da Vinci in Rome and experts from Italy and France to build Leonardo’s machine inventions and create beautiful reproductions of his paintings.

  • See nearly 70 of Leonardo’s machine inventions, built using detailed concepts from his famous codices (notebooks), including a helicopter, airplane, automobile, submarine, and military tank
  • Explore the exclusive “The Secrets of Mona Lisa,” an analysis of the iconic painting conducted at the Louvre by scientific engineer and photographer Pascal Cotte
  • Be immersed in Leonardo’s works through a multisensory cinematic experience using Grande
    Exhibitions’ SENSORY4 technology
  • Test a Leonardo-inspired catapult, and encounter the Museum’s historical enactors, presenting
    characters who bring a personal perspective to the story of Leonardo
