Good news for Energy and Technology Museum visitors – from now on, listen to the audio guide in Lithuanian and English at the exhibition “The Machines of Leonardo da Vinci”.
We invite you to visit the Turbine Hall, where the international interactive exhibition is on display. It consists of dozens of large, smaller, interactive exhibits and reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous works.
The exhibition showcases the work of the universal genius who painted the Mona Lisa and drew the plans for a helicopter in the 15th century. Military, flying machines and hydraulic devices are among the dozens of inventions reconstructed from da Vinci’s original sketches. Interactive exhibits allow everyone to see for themselves the mechanisms of inventions that were centuries ahead of their time and inspired modern engineering.

Hear how the first parachute was constructed, why the first parachute was built in the 15th century and why the Renaissance was so important to the world. The artist, who considered himself a pacifist, was interested in military engineering and weaponry, the function of the engineer’s jack, and the special features of one of the oldest known types of bridge construction, the horse bridge designed by the artist.
