Traditions of tiptoeing with your students through intimidating silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar are forgotten as students find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined.
From the moment you enter THE LUME Melbourne, a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and aroma compels you to leave the world behind and immerse yourself in the artworks display – an experience that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.
Dedicated to exploring the life of the visionary artist, inventor, scientist and philosopher, Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius promises to be THE LUME Melbourne's most ambitious, immersive and breathtaking experience yet.
Prepare to step inside the world’s most famous works of art as Mona Lisa and The Last Supper come to life on THE LUME’s colossal canvas. This groundbreaking showcase allows you to be immersed in the grandeur and intricacies of these masterpieces, providing an intimate encounter with the brilliance of Leonardo's artistry not possible in traditional museum settings.
On a self-led excursion, students will have access to a range of spaces spanning the gallery, including multiple displays of Leonardo’s 'machine inventions' on loan from the Museo Leonardo da Vinci in Rome, interactive installations – plus more to be announced.
THE LUME Melbourne caters to Primary and Secondary excursions and is supported by education learning packages.
Our unique blend of historical art and modern technology is designed to enhance students’ engagement and understanding of the educational experience. By integrating cutting-edge technology with both traditional and contemporary artworks, students are able to interact and engage with the art in a way that is both immersive and interactive. This distinctive approach allows students to not only appreciate the beauty of the art but also to gain a deeper understanding of the cultural, historical, and social significance of Leonardo's work.
The experience also offers an opportunity to provide a culturally responsive curriculum experience.
