Children's Activity Event


To mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death National Museum Cardiff will be displaying twelve of his greatest drawings as part of #Leonardo500 – a national celebration of this extraordinary artist.

But Leonardo wasn’t just an artist – he was a scientist, engineer and inventor and much, much more so we are teaming up with Cardiff University’s School of Engineering to provide a family friendly evening of scientific, hands-on activities and entertainment inspired by some of his greatest ideas.

Tickets for this amazing evening are free! See

Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing Exhibition will be open on the evening for you to visit; however please note there is an additional charge of £5 for adults and £4 for concessions (16 years & under are free). There is a limited capacity in the Gallery so entry will be on a first come first served basis. Remember though that it will be open until 6 May if you want to pop back in another time!
