This immersive exhibition leads you through the mind of Leonardo da Vinci to explore his masterpiece, The Virgin of the Rocks.

Through four distinct spaces, this exhibition brings to life and reveals the secrets of Leonardo’s masterpiece. The gallery becomes a painting studio, an imagined chapel and a room-sized experiment to present The Virgin of the Rocks in exciting new ways.

Visitors get the chance to see how Leonardo painted his iconic work, witness the lost composition hidden beneath the painted surface as well as discover the dramatic effects of light and shadow on the painting, and experience The Virgin of the Rocks in its original setting.
