For those who are in Northern Artemisia or will be traveling through this summer, the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, MT, is hosting an exhibit of 41 life-size models of machines invented by Da Vinci. The exhibit was first created in Florence by scientists and Italian craftsmen and then traveled in Europe for three years. After its stop in Bozeman, the exhibit will go to Mexico City and then return to the US.
Included in the exhibit are flying gliders, a war tank, a water-powered sawmill, a wooden bicycle, a parachute made of wood and canvas, and a gear-powered robot.
The exhibit opens May 29 and continues through September 11. Prices of admission for the exhibit are $13 for adults, $9 for children and $12 for seniors.
