Unlike others of his time living in black and white, Leonard da Vinci’s world was neon. Da Vinci’s universal genius gave him a unique perspective that set him apart from everyone around him – allowing him to become a botanist, sculptor, musician, writer, anatomist, and engineer. Set your mind free and step into da Vinci’s world with the Houston Museum of Natural Science at our Family Festival, Neon Leon: Highlighting da Vinci’s Genius, on April 26th. Leonardo’s interests were incredibly diverse; so we have devised a plethora of activities that reflect the fun side of his pursuits! Show off your artistic side in our Chalk Block Battle Royale, fly a helicopter, break codes, build a parachute, write calligraphy, learn about Italy and the Renaissance, and taste some cool and creamy gelato.

Get NEON this Saturday, April 26th, from 11am – 2pm. FREE to the public!

This festival does not include admission into the Museum exhibits.
