Da Vinci The Exhibition
A journey of innovation, creativity and science.
Da Vinci is now considered more of a scientist than artist due to the 7,000 pages of notes and observations he took during his life. This special exhibition explores the breadth and scope of da Vinci’s incredibly advanced understanding of science, mathematics, nature, and the relationship between the three.
Hands-on replicas, multimedia experiences and documentary presentation throughout the exhibition illustrate da Vinci’s discoveries and creative process.
