Very well presented exhibit. I learned a lot of previously unknown facts about Da Vinci and really enjoyed the mix of facts, illustrations and interactive presentations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarieB It was interesting
Interesting, however NOT busy at all. We could have walked right in. We DID appreciate the $20 coupon. That made it worth the price.

Did you know Da Vinci cut into the brain to find the human soul? Artist, architect, inventor, anatomist.... The list goes on and on. A true genius!

Rated 4 out of 5 by djgrendellv The Da Vinci Exhibition was great!
My Mom and I visited the Da Vinci exhibition on 8/4/14, and we were both amazed at Da Vinci's ingenuity as portrayed by the exhibit. A good portion of the exhibit went into his sfumato ("smoke") painting technique, which fused the borders between the subject and its background. The rest went into his inventions, much of which were meant for warfare, which I found somewhat curious since in most regards he was a humanist. He was a vegetarian, for instance, indicating his love for life. Thus, he becomes a complicated and interesting soul. His engineering capabilities are beyond repute. Many of his inventions have been recreated in the exhibit and can be used by the audience, which is really fun. My only complaint for the exhibit (which I doubt could be done in practice) would be that I'd like to use and/or see in practice ALL of the recreations, including the catapult and the parachute. But overall, I highly recommend the exhibition. It depicts the brilliance of a once-in-a-lifetime genius.

This exhibit was good and very informative. It had many posters with more text than most exhibits and so it took quite a while to read everything.

Both my daughter and I loved the layout, the functioning pieces, and the information provided by the exhibit. Highly recommended for anyone who has even a remote interest in da Vinci or the time period in which he lived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shw627 A great hands on journey through the mind of a genius
A wonderful hands on exhibition of a genius. The 3D models were perfect as were the audio/visual displays.
The time line put the exhibit into perspective. Di Vinci, Michelangelo, Columbus and the Spanish Inquisition (the Catholic slaughter of the Jews) all within the same time frame.
