Leonardo da Vinci is possibly history's most famous artist. Yet Leonardo is known for being an expert in many areas, not just art. In these fun interactives you will not only discover Leonardo the artist, but also Leonardo the engineer and Leonardo the scientist.

Leonardo da Vinci produced the first anatomy drawings of human muscle and bones. These extraordinary studies in ink on paper are still admired by scientists today for their accuracy and beauty.

In this interactive you will discover how particular movements are made when humans dance. After working your way through fun quizzes and tasks, you will be able to make Leonardo's skeleton dance. 

Each of the drawings in the interactives has a 6-digit number attached to it. If you would like to find out more about these Leonardo drawings, which you can also print out, go to Explore the Collection  and use the 6-digit number in your search.
