Leonardo da Vinci was a painter, sculptor, musician, architect, engineer and anatomist. Most enduring to his legacy are his inventions and designs, which include the helicopter and glider, the armored tank, the drive transmission, the printing press and the bicycle. Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion presents a collection of replica full-scale da Vinci machines, built by a group of scientists and skilled craftsmen in Florence, Italy. Many of the mechanisms are life-sized and fully operational, and visitors can touch and set them in motion. It’s a fascinating hands-on experience that explores science, art, and history!
