The Leonardo has been haunted! In conjunction with our current exhibits Spooky Science and Perception, we want to show —YOU— our visitors a frightfully good time. On October 29th, bring the entire family to The Leonardo and come discover the science behind fear at our SPOOKTACULAR event.  Walk through Spooky Science and feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
