You might think a Da Vinci exhibit would be all about history, and it does incorporate plenty of biography. But the focus is on “STEAM” subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Kids can spin clock gears, catapult blocks at a castle, construct their own bridge, and dress up in Renaissance attire.
Dream with Da Vinci a busy, bustling exhibit full of motion. When you walk in, you’ll see parachutes sailing out of the wind tunnel and kids trying out a clever “flying machine” contraption.
It’s also a homage to the world of dreams and ideas. There’s a station where kids can try mirrored handwriting and learn about Da Vinci’s famously coded notebooks, as well as a wall where they can post their own dreams.
Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone also has the first Green Roof in the area! Learn More.
Hands-on Science programs all summer and Saturday’s all year. Learn More.
