Friday, The Leonardo opens its newest exhibition, called 101 Inventions that Changed the World.
Walk through the doors of The Leonardo Museum in downtown Salt Lake City and it’s as if Leonardo da Vinci himself is running around saying, “Hurry up! Come and look at this!” “Leonardo da Vinci was an inventor, a scientist, an artist — he did everything,” said Bryton Sampson, communications manager at The Leonardo. “The museum is named after him because people don’t need to fit into one category. We can explore everything and anything that interests us.”
