To celebrate and understand his contributions to science, engineering and art, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science will host Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius, which is being billed as "the most comprehensive exhibition about Leonardo ever presented," starting March 1 and ending August 25.

The show will include models of seventy of Leonardo's machines that he designed in his notebooks, including a helicopter, an airplane, an automobile, a submarine and a military tank. The exhibit also takes a look at how the "Mona Lisa" was created and includes the museum's historical enactors and a multi-sensory cinematic experience.

“We are thrilled to bring Colorado the most comprehensive exhibition about Leonardo da Vinci ever created," says the museum's CEO and president, George Sparks, in a statement. “Leonardo’s passion for furthering human understanding of the world resonates with us and reflects our commitment to being catalysts for curiosity in our community.”

Tickets, $20.95 to $28.95, are available at the museum's website or by phone at 303-370-6000.
