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.
