The Da Vinci Machines Exhibition, which opened in mid-November at the Bradenton Municipal Auditorium has extended its stay through July 7. Originally scheduled to return to its home at the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci in Florence, Italy in April, the exhibition has attracted more than 15,000 visitors to see more than 60 hand-crafted inventions built from Da Vinci’s 500-year-old designs. The models are presented in four major themes: military machines, flying machines, nautical and hydraulic machines as well as devices and inventions illustrating the principles of mechanics. The uniquely interactive machines are a popular aspect of each exhibition as visitors can touch and handle these models to gain a first-hand appreciation of how they work.
