Grande Experiences, the creator behind the immersive experience Van Gogh and Connection, is back to bring the next famed artist to the big screens in its 3000-square metre multisensory gallery, THE LUME.

Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius will open on 16 March 2024 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. THE LUME will offer visitors the opportunity to step inside world famous artworks, including Mona Lisa (1503) and The Last Supper (1495–1498) presented in colossal scale. It’s an intimate and rare opportunity to encounter Mona Lisa without the crowd at the Louvre, where the original painting is held.
