Half a millennium after Leonardo da Vinci died, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is paying homage to his enduring influence with a new exhibit, “Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius.”
Nearly 70 of his 15th century machine inventions will be on display, including a helicopter, airplane, automobile, submarine and military tank. Scientific engineer and photographer Pascal Cotte gives an in-depth analysis of the iconic Mona Lisa, while attendees can test a Leonardo-inspired catapult. Historical actors will bring a personal perspective to the story of Leonardo.
The exhibit is on display at the museum until August 25.
