Events / Da Vinci Machines
This award-winning international touring exhibition showcases iconic machines and inventions inspired by Leonardo’s drawings.
On loan from the Museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, a vast array of machines are created from original da Vinci drawings bringing the mechanical concepts of this curious mind to life. Highlights include the bicycle, scuba suit, spring powered car, as well as flying machines where visitors may touch and set them in motion, combining a fascinating hands-on experience with an exploration of the principles he employed to create each machine. Visitors will also see actual-size digital prints of the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, The Annunciation, Lady with an Ermine and da Vinci’s self-portrait.
