Explore the Leonardo
“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” – Leonardo da Vinci
So much more than a museum, The Leonardo combines science, creativity and technology to offer a dynamic hands-on, brains-on learning experience down every captivating hallway and through each exciting exhibition space.
Exploring the unexpected ways that science, technology, art and creativity connect, the Leonardo is continually adding new and exciting programs and exhibits. You won’t want to miss an incredible opportunity to see their newest exhibit on display this November through April—Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times.
The Leonardo is one of only 10 U.S. museums to display this 2,000-year-old priceless collection of more than 600 objects from the Biblical to Byzantine Period in Israel, including many objects never before exhibited.
You can see a three-ton stone from Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, the remains of religious articles, weapons of war, stone carvings, textiles and beautiful mosaics, along with everyday household items such as jewelry and ceramics. Discovered by a shepherd in 1947, the Scrolls contain the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible.
In addition to their amazing collection of rotating and permanent exhibits, the Leo offers all sorts of stimulating workshops throughout the year designed to foster creativity and innovation for all ages and interests. For more information on all The Leo has to offer, please visit theleonardo.org.
The Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit was created by the Israel Antiquities Authority from the collections of the Israel National Treasures and produced by Discovery Times Square and The Franklin Institute.
