Owner description: The Imagine Exhibitions Gallery partnered with The Venetian® in this stunning 6,800 square foot gallery to present the Las Vegas community, as well as its many visitors, a variety of culturally significant, beautiful, educational, and entertaining traveling exhibitions.Imagine Exhibitions Gallery is now featuring 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic. This breathtaking traveling exhibition showcases some of National Geographic's most-remembered and celebrated photographs from its 125-year history, such as Steve McCurry's unforgettable "Afghan Girl," Nick Nichols' iconic image of Jane Goodall and chimpanzee, and Thomas Abercrombie's never-before-seen view of Mecca. Imagine Exhibitions Gallery was previously home to Da Vinci - The Genius, which recently concluded its limited engagement.In addition to seeing the photographs as they appeared in the magazine, visitors to 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic will learn the stories behind the photos and more about the photographers themselves. For some images, visitors will be able to see the "near frames" taken by the photographer: the sequence of images made in the field before and after the perfect shot. Additionally, documentary videos throughout the exhibition tell the stories behind these iconic photographs and the photographers who shot them.

“Leonardo da Vinci- amazing exhibit at the Venetian!”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

While staying at the Palazzo, we saw an ad for an exhibition at the Venetian about the life and works if Leonardo da Vinci. While known best perhaps for his painting, I knew he had a broader range of work than that. Our family went-a great decision!
The exhibit was of museum quality. When entering, the creators provided a timeline of Leonardo's life, citing dates for other major historical events occurring in the same year.
There were several of his original notebooks in the exhibit. It is impossible to do justice to the quality of Leonardo's sketches. He performed several autopsies in order to learn to sketch and paint in an anatomically correct manner. The price of admission would be justified by the exhibit of the restoration of the Mona Lisa alone. But what was the biggest surprise was seeng the models of the inventions Leonardo created. From manned flight to a diving suit, Leonardo's inventiveness was both wide and deep.
Our family spent an hour and could have used more time. The exhibit bills itself as the largest collection of Leonardo artifacts which are allowed to travel. I have no reason to doubt that claim. It will delight and amaze all.

“Da Vinci Exhibition..”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Going through this exhibition with my Daughter really great. Just amazing man to explore. Watch his works in physical models were most impressive. Narration and video clips of the Mona Lisa, Last supper and his inventions were very well done. To see the inventor, painter, sculptor, physician, and mathematician that he was made my daughter realize that everything is related in science even with a simple drawing.
