Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion uniquely presents over 20 actual-size working machines, as opposed to miniatures or static displays. The machines were designed by a modern team of scientists and artisans who used the craftsmanship that Leonardo would have used in his time.
The exhibit is organized into four parts, based on da Vinci’s study of the elements of nature and applied knowledge: earth, water, air and fire. Highlights include a revolving crane, a full-size glider, a working robot, and four flying machines. Other da Vinci displays include the hydraulic water saw, the pillar lifter, floats for walking on water, gear-driven machinery and the canon.
