Travel+Leisure: See the ‘Mona Lisa’ Like Never Before in This First-ever Immersive Exhibit Coming to France

After the phenomenal success of immersive art exhibitions dedicated to artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Monet, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” is getting its own interactive experience.

The Louvre and Grand Palais are teaming up on a unique digital show dedicated to the most famous painting in the world slated to run at the Palais de la Bourse in Marseille, France from Mar. 10 until Aug. 21, 2022.
