Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion

Leonardo da Vinci is a celebrated painter, sculptor, musician, architect, engineer and anatomist — but he’s most acclaimed for his inventions and designs. This immersive exhibit is a look into Leonardo da Vinci’s groundbreaking work and the secrets of the beginning of contemporary science and engineering.

The machines displayed in the exhibit were constructed by Worldwide Museum Activities and demonstrate the link between man and nature, and how man functions with and within the elements of nature.

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!

  • Interactive displays of fully operational machines designed by Leonardo da Vinci
  • Hands-on experiences where visitors can touch and set machines in motion
  • Exploration of the principles behind Leonardo’s inventions
  • Thematic sections based on the elements – air, water, land and fire
  • Visionary inventions such as the helicopter, glider, armored tank and more

My school group will have more chaperones than is approved with field trip rate (1 free chaperone for every 10 students). What will the other adults pay?

Any adults accompanying the group that are over the chaperone rate will pay $9.50. If you have more adults than previously provided to the Museum, they will be required to pay general Museum admission fees. 

How does check-in work?

Your school group will check in at the nose of the SR71 with a museum educator. They will get a final headcount of students and chaperones, help you pay for any additional students and adults, and give a rundown of what to expect on your visit. 

Will there be a place for our group to store our personal items or coolers?

The Museum does not have lockers available. Guests are welcome to bring their own bags, coolers and wagons to carry around the Museum. No glass containers or alcohol are allowed. 

Is there a place where my group can sit together to eat lunch?

The Museum has tables available for groups to eat indoors – under the B36, located in Hangar A. There are plenty of available outdoor grass spaces as well, weather permitting.
