After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get two general admissions to the Da Vinci Machines exhibit (a $28 value). The exhibit runs daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

On loan from the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci in Florence, the Da Vinci Machines exhibit debuts in North America with more than 60 interactive models based on the polymath's original 500-year-old concepts. Peruse replicas of major inventions, each handcrafted by three generations of Florentine artisans, including the air screw, an early ancestor to the both the helicopter and the propeller beanie, and learn the secrets behind the mechanical lion, a robotic lion given as a gift to the king of France. Visitors young and old are fully encouraged to touch the war machines, flying machines, and nautical and hydraulic devices for insight into their functionality, and accompanying explanatory notes, illustrative panels, and computer programs help modern minds glean further understanding into Da Vinci's wide-reaching genius and favorite emoticons.

It was fun to do once, I dont know what i would do a second time thru.,

Fun and informative - I like it. The tours are great, and I'd love to see them last longer; some of the more fascinating or intricate designs were discussed too briefly for inquisitive minds.
