Salt Lake City's museum of art, science and technology is aptly named The Leonardo, after Italy's famous Renaissance man. The museum opened in 2011 inside the former Public Library in downtown Salt Lake City. The museum's mission has been to inspire visitors to explore the places where art, science, and technology meet – just as da Vinci himself did. In addition to exhibits, The Leonardo Museum also offers classes and interactive studios.
Visitors can check out the Tinkering Studio and Lab @ Leo, an art studio, where there are opportunities to experiment with provided materials or create original art. Temporary exhibits, such as Body Worlds, are also often featured at The Leonardo.
The Leonardo is open Saturday-Wednesday from 10am to 5pm, and Thursday-Friday from 10am-10pm. Tickets for the main museum are $9 for adults; $8 for seniors, students, military, and children ages 12-17; $7 for children ages 6-11; and free for children age 5 and under. Some exhibits have additional admission fees.
