Explore the mind of the greatest genius of all time.

On loan from the museum of Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, this amazing exhibition brings together creations and concepts devised more than 500 years ago by the brilliant scientist, inventor and artist Leonardo da Vinci.

Da Vinci Mechanics is a display of precise and interactive replicas of machines and robotics designed and described by Leonardo da Vinci in the 15th century and hand-built in Italy.

With more than 80 machines and artworks on display, many of which are interactive, the collection brings to life the most important and impressive designs of the original Renaissance Man, including the bicycle, hang glider, helicopter, a mechanical lion and the incredible robot drummer.

Visitors to the exhibition will be invited to touch and handle the models to gain a first-hand appreciation of how they work. Interactive displays and items will be accompanied by explanatory notes and illustrative panels featuring da Vinci’s drawings.

The exhibition also features children's activities, computer animations, a cinema and reproductions of Leonardo's greatest paintings.

Da Vinci Mechanics is a touring exhibition developed by Artisans of Florence. The touring agency also produced two other exhibitions staged at Waikato Museum: Roman Machines in 2014 and Da Vinci Machines in 2009. Both international exhibitions attracted record visitor numbers at all New Zealand venues.
