What is The Leonardo?

The Leonardo is a contemporary museum that explores the unexpected ways that science, technology, art, and creativity connect. Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, The Leo is your place to see one-of-a-kind, interactive exhibits and participate in ever-changing programs, workshops, and classes.

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.

Once home to the Salt Lake City Public Library, The Leonardo’s building has been a center for learning, curiosity, and discovery for the people of the Wasatch Front for nearly 50 years. The Leo is tremendously proud to carry on that legacy, and invite you to become a part of this unique museum experience.
