ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Da Vinci exhibition is the most robust and comprehensive touring Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in the world. Da Vinci The Exhibition was created in collaboration with Italian Artisans responsible for interpreting the ancient Florentine dialect used by Leonardo Da Vinci and deciphering the Codices of Da Vinci.
These expert Artisans used Da Vinci’s Codices to design and construct Leonardo’s inventions, bringing to life many machines and devices that were designed but never created by Da Vinci due to the lack of modern technologies in the 15th century. Each of Da Vinci The Exhibition’s , 65 inventions , was built using precise details from Leonardo’s codices in an effort to produce the most accurate representations of his idea. Da Vinci Exhibition is the first and only exhibition to display over 60 invention as working models; the majority of which are interactive for visitors to enjoy and learn from.
Da Vinci The Exhibition sends visitors of all ages on an inspirational journey to the past where they will get to know the greatest genius that ever lived through innovation, creativity, science and technology.
