Louvre Leonardo da Vinci exhibition to commemorate his 500th death anniversary; registrations-only

 Thursday, May 2, 2019 


Musée du Louvre will have a special exhibition to commemorate the 500th anniversary Leonardo da Vinci’s death at Amboise, in the Loire Valley this coming fall. However, visitors would have to make reservations in advance. The Louvre Leonardo da Vinci exhibition is scheduled to open October 24, 2019 and continue through February 24, 2020.



This Paris museum drew a record 10.2 million visitors in 2018. It will begin offering specific time slots through its online booking service on June 18. Visitors who qualify for free entry will also have to make a reservation. Adult tickets will cost about U.S. dollars 19 (17 euros). It will improve the encounter with the works of Leonardo.





Agence France-Presse, the Louvre’s president, Jean-Luc Martinez, said that reservations were necessary “because we must stop judging the success of an exhibition by the number of hours waiting outdoors.” The reservations are expected to help keep lines under control and limit wait times to about 30 minutes.





The Louvre boasts more Leonardo paintings than anywhere else in the world. It is to be seen whether Italian authorities will lend some state-owned da Vinci works to the museum for the commemorative exhibition.




On May 2, 1519, the great Italian Renaissance genius died at the Château du Clos Lucé. This is why the Louvre holds almost a third of his corpus of paintings.
