Da Vinci Machines and Robotics
11 March 2018 - 20 May 2018
Opening 9 March 2018, 5:30pm
This award-winning international touring exhibition invites visitors to delve into the mind of Renaissance artist, scientist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci and showcases many of his iconic inventions.
On loan from the Museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, the hand-crafted exhibition brings together ingenious creations devised more than 500 years ago. Many of the pieces are interactive and the collection brings to life da Vinci’s most important and impressive world firsts including the bicycle, hang glider, the aerial screw (the precursor to the helicopter), the scuba suit, a mechanical lion and the incredible robot drummer.
The exhibition is suited to all ages and visitors will be able to touch and handle many of the models to gain a first-hand appreciation of how they work.
The latest issue of Tui Tui Tuituia, the museum newletter is available.
