Da Vinci's Machines

Through Sunday, May 6
Discovery Place Science

Da Vinci's Machines brings the innovations of Leonardo da Vinci to life. This all-new exhibition features over 75 inventions reconstructed from his illustrations and writings.

Encounter and test these amazing inventions, from flying machines and war weapons to diving gear and a self-propelled car. See iconic artwork and reflect on the work of a true visionary. 

Over 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci conceived possibilities far beyond the understanding of others. His ideas about anatomy, mechanics and flight reveal a man of extraordinary vision. 

Da Vinci lived during the Italian High Renaissance, a period of great cultural change and achievement. His paintings influenced Italian art for more than a century after his death. His studies in optics, biology, anatomy and physics anticipated many of the developments in modern science. 

Entry to the exhibition is free with Museum admission.
