More Info

The award-winning interactive exhibition invites everyone with curiosity to delve into the mind of artist, scientist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci and showcases many of his iconic inventions.

On loan from the Museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, the 60 interactive machines are created from original da Vinci drawings and highlights include the bicycle, the scuba suit, spring powered car, as well as flying machines. Among da Vinci’s innovations are automatons (the precursors to robots), nautical, hydraulic and architectural tools, ground-breaking applications of civil engineering and fear-inspiring machines of war like the tank.

Visitors won’t need to travel to museums, galleries and churches in Europe to get up close to the paintings for which da Vinci became the most celebrated Renaissance artist. Included in the exhibition are actual-size digital prints of the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, The Annunciation, Lady with an Ermine and da Vinci’s self-portrait. Visitors will have the rare opportunity to compare the restored Mona Lisa with the vibrant, pre-restoration painting.

The exhibition is suitable for all ages and over 6 million people have visited the exhibition in more than 30 countries worldwide.
