“Over the past few years, every time we’ve asked our visitors what special exhibit they would most like us to host, and exhibit on Leonardo da Vinci ranked number one by a landslide,” John Heubusch, expective director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, said in the press release. “We are thrilled to say that not only did we answer their requests, but we did so by putting together an exhilarating and educational exhibition which has never been seen before.”
The family-friendly exhibition features rare folios of the Codex Atlanticus and more than three dozen reconstructions of da Vinci’s extraordinary machines, including his Mechanical Lion, Flying Bicycle, Triple Machine Gun and Great Kite. It also includes the world premiere of da Vinci’s Double Continuous Organ, described in the release as “one of his most fascinating and functional inventions.”
