Da Vinci Machines
This 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. 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.
