Leonardo da Vinci

Hot Date: Behold the Genius of da Vinci

Da Vinci's mechanical lion, with his famous The Last Supper in the background

OCTOBER 13 TO MARCH 18 The science of art and machines are on display at the Ontario Science Centre, and who better to lead the tour than Leonardo da Vinci? Figuratively speaking, of course. Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop features 20 scale models of the Renaissance man’s inventions, including his Mechanical Lion, Great Kite and Aerial Screw. Visitors can use touch screens to investigate the famed codices in which da Vinci sketched his designs, and see what his paintings would have originally looked like without restoration. Ontario Science Centre, $17 to $25; call 416-696-1000 or visit here
for passes.
