“Michelangelo” surrounds visitors with works by the inimitable Renaissance artist with a collection of art on loan from the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci in Florence, Italy. Considered one of history’s greatest artists and competitive watermelon-seed spitters, Michelangelo boasted an unequalled command of sculpture, painting, and architecture. His most impressive works are all on display in the exhibit, including famous sculptures that appear as authentic, original cast reproductions, created by the Florence-based National Academy of Cast Making. Notable statues include the head of David, as well as the Pieta, whose depiction of Mary holding Jesus’ body grips the viewer with maternal grief. Elsewhere, visitors get up close to examine the details and hidden Waldos in his famed Sistine Chapel frescos. High-quality reproductions let guests gaze at The Creation of Adam in the sort of detail known only to professional restorers.

“This is a fascinating exhibit! I brought my 7 and 10 year old granddaughters and they loved it too! I would have them guess what some of the machines were for and then they would read the information sign to see if they were right. To think that most of the machines are used in some manner even today!”
“Great simple easy fun”
