Event Description

A temporary traveling exhibit, Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion, presents 30 full-scale machines that were built after in-depth study of Leonardo da Vinci’s designs by a group of scientists and skilled craftsmen in Florence, Italy. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that many of the mechanisms are life-sized and fully operational. Visitors may touch and set the machines in motion.
