Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci – creator of works including the “Mona Lisa,” “The Vitruvian Man” and “The Last Supper” – is coming to Albuquerque.

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation and the Department of Cultural Affairs are bringing the renowned “DaVinci – The Genius” exhibit to Albuquerque. Running from February 10 through July 29, 2018 at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, it’s the most comprehensive traveling exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci ever assembled.
