Experience the genius of Leonardo da Vinci through this exhibit of machines based on his visionary designs. Each machine has been faithfully constructed from da Vinci’s notebooks by a modern team of scientists and craftsmen in Florence, Italy. Explore the range of mechanical principles da Vinci employed. See the mind of the ultimate Renaissance man at work through his notes and drawings. The machines are grouped into four sections based upon applications linked to the elements – air, water, land, and fire – which held a strong fascination for Leonardo da Vinci.
