da Vinci exhibit at the Tech

Get yourself to San Jose and The Tech Museum and check out this awesome exhibit created buy my good friends from the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza in Florence Italy. The models of Leonardo's machines are gorgeous and the media and visuals are overwhelmingly informative. This is the most comprehensive exhibit of Leonardo's work as a scientist and engineer ever in the United Sates. It is only around for four months and it is something that shouldn't be missed. If that weren't enough, there are even two paintings done by Leonardo's students from the Uffizi to see.
go check it out you won't be disappointed!

Oh, and if you find yourself in Florence you have to go to the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza. Located right next to the Uffizi and right on the Arno. It is a great little museum that is like an attic of beautiful scientific instruments. It celebrates the art that is science and engineering and is fantastic. You can even see Galileo's finger!
