Housed in the former Salt Lake City Library, The Leonardo is a museum dedicated to science and technology and the state's role in advancing these fields. The museum is aptly named after Leonardo DaVinci, one of the greatest thinkers in human history who was intensely interested in art and science. The museum encourages visitors of all ages to embrace this mindset and learn about and question the world around them. To this end, the museum's exhibits explore the science behind flight, the human mind, the contributions women have made to all fields of study, the innovations Utahans have made, and forgeries. The museum opened in 2011 and it offers a wide range of educational programming for visitors of all ages.
