Discover the Da Vinci in you.

Downtown Bradenton just got more amazing. Along with the exciting exhibits and engaging wonder of the South Florida Museum, the Da Vinci Machines Exhibition brings the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci to life at the Bradenton Auditorium – and you can see them both for one value-packed admission.

Experience Da Vinci’s genius brought to life as you witness actual working models and machines carefully reconstructed from Da Vinci’s own drawings, notes and designs. See them move. Touch and control them. And be awed by the ceaseless magnitude of intellect and invention way ahead of its time.

Over 60 machines, meticulously hand-crafted by Florentine artisans, bring Da Vinci’s amazing visions to life and provide fascinating insight into many of the machines of our current, modern world: the tank, the helicopter, the hang glider, the bicycle, the modern warship. All sprang from the mind of Leonardo da Vinci.

Come and be amazed.
