Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, an engineer, a scientist, an architect, a musician and a humanitarian, among many other things. One of his most important skills was learning how to learn. Leonardo's famous curiosity was a more important tool than his paintbrush. By experimenting, questioning, and exploring the world around him, he asked questions nobody had ever asked before. And he found answers nobody found before him. He made no distinction between art and science and saw the interconnectedness of all things.
We created The Leonardo to honor and embody the spirit of this Renaissance Man. We see the world as he saw it: full of wonders to be uncovered, always asking why? Our museum is a place where you can freely wander and wonder. Come and discover your inner genius, just like Leonardo did. Look around. Ask the big questions. Have fun. Get your hands busy. Welcome.
Mission Statement: We live in a rapidly-changing, highly connected world that asks each citizen to be more curious, more informed and more engaged. The Leonardo seeks to reflect and respond to this new world by creating an innovative, dynamic space that builds fluency and knowledge, ignites the creative imagination of visitors of all ages, and inspires them to see and act in new and powerful ways.
The Leonardo is a non-profit community-powered museum which opened in 2011. (less)... Read more

Junior Ranger programs engage young people in age-appropriate activities that allow them to discover the significance of a specific site, introduce them to the national park system and to the mission of the National Park Service. They reveal to children that these amazing places belong to them. Junior Ranger programs are designed to provide participants with the flexibility to discover and interact with the park at their own pace and within the limits of their visit.
They encourage children and their families to explore things they might otherwise have missed, to get out and walk around, to explore further by visiting specialized programs, park movies, exhibits, trails overlooks, talking to a ranger, and others.
When you get to the park visitor center ask a park ranger or volunteer for a junior ranger booklet if you are between the ages of 6-12 and you can fill it out and earn a badge! (less)... Read more
