After a long wait we are so pleased to present our first new exhibition for 2021 - Da Vinci Machines. This is the first of a whole program of special exhibitions and events that celebrates our 50 Year Anniversary.

This exhibition merges art and science and features full scale constructions of Da Vincis master inventions created by the talented Artisans of Florence from his original drawings. It is designed to appeal to young and old alike, as we invite you to get curious and imagine how these brilliant inventions might inspire our community now and in years to come. I hope you enjoy everything we have to offer during Da Vinci Machines, and dont forget our two special live performance events coming up in February - sure to surprise and delight!
