Aerospace Museum to Debut Leonardo da Vinci “Machines 
in Motion”

Debuts February 6

On display for the very first time in California, guests of all ages will be fascinated by the dramatic and interactive Leonardo da Vinci “Machines in Motion” international traveling exhibit coming soon to the Aerospace Museum of California. Forty impressive machine replicas will be on special display, occupying nearly 9,000-square feet of space inside the Museum. All of the hands-on machines are based on Leonardo da Vinci’s visionary designs and innovative notebook drawings that have been meticulously constructed by a modern team of scientists and craftsmen in collaboration with the Leonardo da Vinci Museum in Florence, Italy. Museum guests will have the unique opportunity to set the machines in motion while learning and exploring the wide range of mechanical principles da Vinci employed to create each one. Grouped together in four sections, according to the element which the machine operates or from which it draws power — Earth, Water, Air and Fire – the exhibit features visionary early inventions such as the helicopter, glider, armored tank, drive transmission, printing press, bicycle, robot and more. In addition, a da Vinci themed PlayZone will also be available for very young children to inspire creative learning.
