Leonardo da Vinci's 'Earlier Mona Lisa'

11am - 10pm
The Arts House at the Old Parliament
Standard: S$20 | Child: S$14 | Senior Citizen, NSF & Student : S$15

In this tablet-led interactive multimedia exhibition, visitors are invited to explore the scientific and historical evidence supporting the painting’s attribution to Leonardo da Vinci, and immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Leonardo, Mona Lisa and the Italian Renaissance. Participants of all ages are given the chance to experience the fascinating mysteries and discoveries surrounding the painting, followed by the rare and exceptional opportunity to see the painting "in the flesh".

Your child can join the investigation as world-famous Detective Emily Brush and her apprentice Peter Potts examine the historical, scientific, mathematical and comparative evidence, in an effort to solve the case of the two Mona Lisas. The tour will challenge young viewers’ critical skills by pushing them to reach logical conclusions through “detective work”. This is achieved through audiovisual content contained in the case files, along with hands-on interactive displays and short multimedia questionnaires.

This unique experience is geared toward immersing the children in this fascinating history, while enhancing their overall appreciation of art. This tablet-led, fully audiovisual tour is designed to engage children ages 6 to 12.
