IMG_2979(2)Just because our kids are out of school next week doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get some inspiration to stay in school. We’ve been telling you about several of the museums in and around the area, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention one temporary exhibit that is closing soon. Especially when it features an inspirational inventor.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop“, housed in a relatively new exhibit space in the old New York Times building in Manhattan, features life-size, interactive models of the Renaissance genius’ creations and concepts. The exhibit also uses touch-screen exhibits to present 3-D models of the inventions that Leonardo sketched in his notebooks. You can show the kids that we might not be flying or driving today had it not been for Leonardo and his ideas. (Yes, he had designs for both modes of transportation.)

You can buy your tickets online, or by calling (866) 987-9692. There is also a combo ticket that includes both the da Vinci exhibit and the Titanic artifact show that is going on at the same location. Those tickets range from $29.94 for children to $37.56 for adults, a 25% savings over buying the tickets individually.
