Experience the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci through over 30 machines based on his visionary designs. Each machine has been faithfully constructed from Leonardo’s notebooks by a modern team of scientists and craftsman in the heart of the Renaissance, Florence, Italy.

Set the machines in motion. Explore the range of mechanical principles Leonardo employed. Set the mind of the ultimate Renaissance man artwork through his notes and drawings. Compare Leonardo’s designs with today’s innovations. 

The machines are grouped into four sections, based upon applications linked to the elements, which held a strong fascination for Leonardo da Vinci: Fire, Water, Earth and Air.
