Explore Da Vinci’s iconic life-sized inventions, fine art studies and artworks. Immerse yourself in the Renaissance spirit right here in Singapore.
Leonardi Da Vinci’s achievements in art and science have received accolades for decades, making him one of the most influential figures in the world. But have you ever wondered what made his extraordinary mind tick? Get up close and personal with the polymath through this interactive showcase at Science Centre Singapore. Da Vinci, The Exhibition boasts over 50 fully built, life-sized inventions, more than 20 fine art studies and dozens of displays by the cultural icon – making it the largest collection in Southeast Asia.
Peek into Da Vinci’s complex discoveries
Across 10 exhibit zones, you’ll unearth Da Vinci’s iconic discoveries in Renaissance paintings, physics, optics and music, military, aviation, civil engineering, hydraulics, and more. The displays are brought to life by trained artisans who used Leonardo’s Codices to design and construct inventions. Did you know: due to a lack of modern technologies in the 15th century, many machines and devices conceptualised by Da Vinci were never created. Just imagine the possibilities!
You can also enjoy a hands-on experience through interactive displays. Delve into his famous studies of anatomy like the Golden Ratio and “Vitruvian Man”. Pose in front of a neon-lit display of the Vitruvian Man and be part of his iconic Mona Lisa painting. BTW, a rendition of the iconic painting can be found here – no flight to Paris needed.
Bask in the sounds of the Renaissance
Transport yourself to the Renaissance era with an exclusive performance by an award-winning choir led by artistic director, Toh Bah Seng. What a great way to reel in the festivities!
