National Museum Cardiff, alongside eleven other cities across the UK, will be celebrating the iconic life and work of Leonardo da Vinci to mark the 500th anniversary of his death. As part of this #Leonardo500 celebration, the Museum will have twelve of his greatest drawings on display from 1st February- 6th May.
144 of Leonardo’s drawings will be on display in twelve simultaneous exhibitions across the UK. These works have been chosen to reflect the vast creative interests of this extraordinary artist- painting, music, anatomy, and geology to name but a few!
Tickets for the exhibition can only be purchased on your day of visit. Adult tickets cost £5, Concessions £4, and 16 years and under Free. There is no advanced booking and only a limited number available on the day, so be sure to arrive early!
