Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition comes to the Temora Aviation Museum

Eager explorers young and old will be able to get hands-on with one of history’s most brilliant minds.

Temora Aviation Museum’s Da Vinci Machines exhibition shows off 60 machines and drawings from the legendary renaissance master.

Museum manager Peter Harper said it was a rare opportunity for people in the region to explore a mind that was well ahead of its time.

“Visitors have the opportunity to have hands-on experiences with the interactive machines which include the ‘air screw’, Da Vinci’s take on a helicopter,” Mr Harper said.

“We are thrilled to bring this rare collection to the Riverina in one of its last stops in the country before it heads back to Italy.”

A range of renaissance contraptions including automatons (the precursors to robots), nautical and hydraulic machines and a hang glider will be on show until October 29.
