The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is proud to host the extraordinary Da Vinci, The Genius exhibition created by Grande Exhibitions of Victoria, Australia in collaboration with the Museo Leonardo da Vinci, Rome, and the French scientific engineer Pascal Cotte.
This is the most comprehensive traveling exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci ever assembled.
Da Vinci – The Genius is the most comprehensive Leonardo da Vinci exhibition to tour the world. With the assistance of Museo Leonardo da Vinci (Italy) and Pascal Cotte of Lumiere Technology (France), this exhibition brings to life the genius of Leonardo as an inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor and philosopher.
Working from Leonardo’s codices, Italian artisans have faithfully crafted interactive and life-size machine inventions for this unique, full-spectrum Leonardo da Vinci exhibition experience. These works include the first concepts of a car, bicycle, helicopter, glider, parachute, SCUBA, submarine, military tank and ideal city to name a few.
The exhibit moves far beyond machine inventions alone, featuring facsimiles of Leonardo’s most famous codices, anatomical studies, Anghiari battle drawings and Renaissance art.
Adults $22, Seniors $20 & Children $12 (includes Museum and Planetarium)
