Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion is the perfect educational opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students. Your class will pair with a knowledgeable museum educator for hands-on discovery and learning during your tour of the exhibit. And after you’ve fully explored this interactive two-hour experience, you can stay to learn about all things space and aviation!
