The Leonardo Museum
Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, an engineer, a scientist, an architect, a musician and a humanitarian, among many other things. One of his most important skills was learning how to learn. Leonardo’s famous curiosity was a more important tool than his paintbrush. By experimenting, questioning, and exploring the world around him, he asked questions nobody had ever asked before. And he found answers nobody found before him. He made no distinction between art and science and saw the interconnectedness of all things.
The Leonardo was created to honor and embody the spirit of this Renaissance Man. We see the world as he saw it: full of wonders to be uncovered, always asking why? Our museum is a place where you can freely wander and wonder. Come and discover your inner genius, just like Leonardo did.
