Question by Chouji: What’s the next museum or current one that is displaying the codex Leicester by Leonardo da Vinci?
I heard that the codex Leicester goes on display once a year at different museums, but I am having trouble finding which museum it is currently at, or will be at. Please help.
Answer by RachelS
It appears that after Bill Gates purchased the Codex it did indeed travel to several museums. Unfortunately, the most recent exhibition I could find was at the Chester Beatty Library in 2007. Books and works on paper are very delicate objects so it’s possible it cannot travel that often.
You can, however, view the book online from the comfort of your home using the British Library’s Turn the Pages 2.0 application. The link is here:
