Sharing our stories.

Special exhibits are the perfect fusion of STEAM, and now we’re taking the time to dig deeper. Leo Originals are a continuation of our Pompeii Lecture Series, featurettes of our Library Square history, and a look at our galleries and collections from the past to present. We’ll also look back on our museum’s story, sharing the multi-faceted highlights that made our building a place for creativity and innovation. Get behind-the-scenes and more in this growing gallery of Leo Originals.
