Holy cow is it March already? For us lucky Denver peeps that means we are smack in the middle of that weird "Third Winter" thing.  It's 60 degrees. It's 10 degrees. It's both in one day! 

The good news is there is no shortage of fun indoor AND outdoor events to spend your time at this weekend.  Let us know if you try one out!   

Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius

Inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor, philosopher. Although Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519, his enduring influence comes to life in the new exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius. You will see why the ultimate Renaissance man remains an inspiration for the ages!

  • See nearly 70 of Leonardo’s machine inventions, built using detailed concepts from his famous codices (notebooks), including a helicopter, airplane, automobile, submarine, and military tank.
  • Explore the exclusive “The Secrets of Mona Lisa,” an analysis of the iconic painting conducted at the
    Louvre by scientific engineer and photographer Pascal Cotte.
  • Be immersed in Leonardo’s works through a multisensory cinematic experience using Grande
    Exhibitions’ SENSORY4 technology.
  • Test a Leonardo-inspired catapult, and encounter the Museum’s historical enactors, presenting
    characters who bring a personal perspective to the story of Leonardo.

WHEN: Opens March 1st, runs through August 25th 2019
