The new one-hour immersive experience is being held in the Las Vegas Strip’s first permeant digital art museum, and features three galleries visitors can explore as they learn about da Vinci’s world, and about the man himself.

Each of the three 360-degree galleries’ exhibits focus on da Vinci’s works, studies, and findings in his varied roles as an architect, engineer, alchemist, artist, philosopher, and sculptor.

Grand Salon: Chapters of the Genius’ Life – Enter a 28-foot-tall, four-walled theater where Renaissance-era Italy is brought to life through the eyes of the master in his roles as engineer and architect, allowing the chapters of his life to unfold through a 35-minute film.

Each of the Grand Salon’s walls offer a different visual perspective of da Vinci’s story, set to narration. Take flight in his Flying Machine, experience digitally constructed cathedrals, and soar over Tuscany on a parachute designed by da Vinci.

Painting with Light: The Last Supper – Witness a fresh take on The Last Supper, one of da Vinci’s most famous paintings, created during the Italian High Renaissance. Floor-to-ceiling, surround-sound LED walls bring the work of art to life through color, light, shape, and sound.
