Thousands flock to Da Vinci Machines

More than 3,300 people have visited Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery to see Da Vinci Machines.

And with the Art Gallery’s guest book reading like a perfect report card, it includes positive comments from people as far as Onkaparinga SA, Kingaroy QLD, Canberra ACT and Dianella WA.

Swan Hill Art Gallery Director Ian Tully said the response so far had been incredible.

“Everyone who has walked through the doors has been blown away,” Mr Tully said.

“I think the fact that it covers so many interests, everything from art and history to engineering and physics, has definitely attributed to its success. And the hands on aspect means it really is accessible and suitable for all ages.

“We’re open every day, so I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen this incredible display to come down and take a walk through history and a glimpse inside the mind of one of the world’s greatest inventors.”

Da Vinci Machines is on display until 20 August.
