Da Vinci's Workshop

by - July 27, 2013

Leonardo Da Vinci was a well known inventor and artist in his time and even up to this day, he still is acknowledged as a genius, amazing man and an epitome of Renaissance ideals. But we all know that it's not possible to see his actual works, like his prominent paintings, unless you're in Paris France. But fortunately for us here in the Philippines, SM Family Entertainment Center, Inc. (FECI), in partnership with Aurea International Exhibits of Argentina, gives us the chance to view in person 64 prototype inventions and paintings of the great Italian Renaissance man and have an interactive experience through Da Vinci's Workshop. :)

The exhibit is actually interesting, because it strays away from the boring class room setting. You get to touch and tinker with the different displays that have. What an awesome way to learn, right? I'm sure your kids will love it, because mine surely did!

In case you're curious and want to bring your kids, here's my photo diary of some of the cool displays that I saw there and enjoyed as well...

I know that Da Vinci was an inventor, but I didn't imagine even for a split second that he had this much work! I was in awe while touring the exhibit, because we actually use now in present time the things he invented centuries ago.

This is actually a rare opportunity to experience firsthand the incredible works of Leonardo Da Vinci through this workshop. A very educational and fun way to teach my son. :)

He contributed so much to our world. Through this exhibit, I saw Da Vinci as an artist, engineer, scientist, architect and inventor. I recommend that you bring your family along. :)
