Leonardo’s Lab @ The Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia
May 10 @ 10:00 am – Dec 5 @ 5:00 pm
The Youth Museum complex is located in New River Park adjacent to the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. Museum hours are Tues. – Sat. 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Leonardo’s Lab exhibition at the Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia. The exhibit offers young artists and inventors a chance to immerse themselves in the mind of Leonardo DaVinci, the original ‘Renaissance Man.’
In very hands-on ways, visitors can build, sketch, test and design via activities tied to Leonardo’s era and ideas. Children and adults both will find the brain challenges, opportunities for creative expression, and intriguing ideas appealing.
The exhibition includes interactive science and art exhibits, including a photo-op with Mona Lisa, ratio-coordinated gears to create your own 2D and 3D interlocking mechanisms, an opportunity to recreate Leonardo’s amazing tool-and-hardware-free interlocking bridge, cut out and fold your own air-powered flying ‘copter, learn Leonardo’s special mirror writing and so much more.
