Things to Do & See at The Leo



No Fixed Address

No Fixed Address gives people without a permanent residence an opportunity to introduce themselves to the world. As you wander its halls and ponder its portraits, you’ll realize, perhaps for the first time, that these aren’t “homeless people,” they’re people. And they’re just like you. More Info > 


Perception: The Illusion of Reality

Your mind is astonishing! And so is our newest exhibit. Your mind constructs your experience by distorting, adding and even leaving things out. By focusing on three senses–touch, hearing and sight–Perception explores how your mind manipulates sensory data to shape your view of the world. More info >

Science Lab

You can’t be curious if you don’t have any questions. And you’ll never have questions if you don’t observe the world around you. In the Science Lab we learn to observe, ask questions, and then experiment! More Info >
