Leonardo Da Vinci is considered by many to be one of mankind’s greatest thinkers. He was a brilliant engineer, architect, sculptor and painter amongst many other things. He was one of the few rare minds that come along once in a generation. His works were so far ahead of his time that included advancements in dynamics, anatomy, physics, optics, biology, hydraulics and aeronautics. He would have really made a name for himself here in Hollywood had he lived today. The Da Vinci Hollywood Exhibit is probably going to be the next best thing to experience the works and life of this legend.
The Da Vinci Exhibit is located over at the Hollywood and highland center across from the Kodak Theatre. It showcases displays of 64 full-sized machines that were described and designed by Leonardo. There have reproductions of 20 of his most famous works of art and have an area of activities that has over 30 original games and crafts. The cool part is guests can be a participant and actually play with and get hands on with the machines to see how they work and function. The galleries really show off his most prized work including the Mona Lisa and Last Supper. There is also a film that explores the life of Leonardo and his displays as well as gift shop for you to take some memorabilia home with you.
This is a great little gem located right here in Hollywood but don’t wait too long because the exhibit will only be around until December 31st of this year. There are discounts for families and groups as well as student discounts so make sure you get to come and see some of the most influential works by one of mankind’s most brilliant minds.
