Leonardo Da Vinci - Master of Innovation 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, a vast array of interactive machines are created from original da Vinci drawings. Highlights include the bicycle, hang glider, defence of town halls, as well as his fascinating flying machines. Amongst da Vinci's many innovations, guests will discover automatons (the precursors to robots), nautical, hydraulic and architectural tools, ground-breaking applications of civil engineering and fear-inspiring machines of war such as the tank. Visitors can also get up close to the paintings which made da Vinci the most celebrated artist of his time. Digital prints of the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, The Annunciation, Lady with an Ermine and da Vinci's self-portrait are all on display. The exhibition offers the rare opportunity to compare the restored Mona Lisa with the vibrant, pre-restoration painting.
