St. Peter Museum of Inventions

Our museum contains many famous Renaissance inventions.

Open Now! Leanardo da Vinci exhibit

This is our newest exhibit and it focuses on some of Leonardo's inventions, paintings, and sculptures. He was born in 1452 and died in 1519. In his life time he made a great effect on society. He started out as an artist and sculptor, but then later became interested in science and inventing. He never was educated in Latin or Science, and this is why many people ignored his ideas. In this exhibit you will discover how his inventions worked and why they were so important. We hope you will come and join us and discover how some of these inventions still effect us today.

Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci

The image above is probably one of the most famous, and well know paintings in the world. Originally called La Gioconda Leonardo first painted it between 1503 and 1506. It is a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, who is the wife of Francesco del Giocondo. Leonardo painted it with oil on a poplar panel. Today the French Republic owns the painting and it is on display in the Louver museum in Paris. It has been there since 1797 and is on display permanently.
