The mission of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation is to support and enhance the cultural, educational and research program of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science.
We are excited to announce the blockbuster world-renowned exhibition, Da Vinci the Genius, coming to the Museum in February 2018. This exhibition has only been seen in 55 cities throughout 6 continents but has been viewed by over 5 million visitors. The Museum is honored to be hosting it in Albuquerque for the enjoyment of the citizens of New Mexico.
Leonardo Da Vinci is most notably known for his artistic creations of Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, but he is so much more than that! Da Vinci was an inventor, artist, scientist, engineer, sculptor, anatomist, biologist, musician, architect and philosopher. In the exhibition, Da Vinci the Genius, will provide an in-depth look at his creativity, critical thinking and problem solving through STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) learning. There will be 65-full scale inventions and tactile experiences for children and adults to enjoy. There will be core themes in the exhibition including anatomy, civil engineering, music, art, flight, military engineering, hydraulics, physics and mechanics.
Grande Exhibitions developed the exhibition in Melbourne, Australia, and are now showcasing it world-wide. It will be at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science from February 3 – July 29, 2018.
