The doors of The Leonardo are still closed, but we are looking forward to re-opening when it’s safe to do so. For the latest announcements, make sure to follow us on social media or check our website periodically to see all of our digital and live summer programming, and updates on when and how we plan to open our doors again (hopefully, soon).
The Leonardo was opened in 2011 as a non-profit organization. We wanted to create a new kind of museum that combined science, technology, and art in experiences that inspire creativity and innovation in our visitors. By adding several hands-on experiences to the traditional museum experience, we believe we are forging a new way forward in the museum industry.
