The exhibition is an invitation to rediscover Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece through stories and sensory experiences that take place on different levels:
– the circuit is punctuated with encounters with the “landscape-skin” that envelops the entire exhibition space. It immerses visitors in a place inspired by the works of Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519), such as the Mona Lisa, Virgin of the Rocks and The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and offers interactive experiences for the public. The landscapes from these works come together and interact to create a panoramic world that brings the space to life. Here digital media, which is often thought of as a “cold” format, takes on an appealing sensitive and emotive dimension, with unusual graphic textures.
– different visual tales recount the stories, mysteries, contemporary context and process behind this painting that has become an icon. Visitors meander through visual narratives that are simultaneously instructive, sensory and contemplative.
The format of The Mona Lisa: an immersive exhibition invites a wide audience to experience an exhibition, and each individual’s relationship with this emblematic work, in a brand new way. This is no minor ambition, as it involves combining aesthetic, narrative and technological innovations while remaining mindful of accessibility and audience engagement.
This creation offers a unique vision of Leonardo da Vinci’s work, both precise and well-researched, as well as a powerful and original artistic perspective.
Visitors can expand and share their knowledge of the topics covered in the exhibition through the experiences and interaction offered by the fun, appealing and intuitive modules, where technological innovation lends itself to education and exploration.

The immersive digital experience designed by the Louvre Museum and the Grand Palais Immersif will allow visitors to discover the work in a new light, to travel through its history and closer to its pictorial
surface, provoking wonder and stimulating intellectual curiosity.
Built around a narrative thread playing on the investigative and the spectacular, several sequences will invite visitors to travel through time, starting from the icon that it is today, back to the earliest stages of its creation.
