Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Indre-et-Loire / Amboise / Le Chateau du Clos Luce - Parc Leonardo da Vinci
Famous as the official residence of Leonardo da Vinci at the end of his life between 1516 and 1519, Le Chateau du Clos Luce - Parc Leonardo da Vinci is now an interactive museum with forty models of visionary machines designed by Leonardo. You can experiment with Leonardo's inventions by steering his tank, paddling his boat, operating his fan-style machine gun, and spinning Archimedes' screw used to lift water.
Pick up a brochure in English and 14 other languages at the entrance that includes a map of the garden, the park, the château, and the countryside.
Discover the first automobile illustrated in Leonardo's innovative mechanical drawings and the machines he developed using his knowledge of botany and zoology. His studies of body mechanics inspire the workings of many of his machines. View his illustrations for flying machines that parallel modern technologies for helicopters, gliders, and propellers. Explore Leonardo's plan for a functioning city and his famous geometric drawing of a dodecahedron.
Enter Leonardo's universe in the park containing 20 huge interactive machines. Float around the lake in the boat Leonardo designed, walk along the paths with 40 oversized translucent canvases depicting diverse works, and walk across the two-level bridge Leonardo designed to reach his garden that brings his botanical drawings to life. Your children will love this fun exhibit so much they'll forget it's also educational.

Le Chateau du Clos Luce - Parc Leonardo da Vinci reviews
Leonardo Da Vinci’s home for the last 3 years of his life. Models of his inventions in the house, and more life size working models in the gardens. A must visit! more »
The house and the grounds are really nice to see. The inventions created from LDV's drawings were the main draw. more »
Beautiful and peaceful gardens. The museum was interesting well but the gallery was pure joy. I would recommend bringing drinking water with you on a hot day. more »
A bit pricey but a great experience. The exhibit does a great job of highlighting divinchi's career. The outdoor paths are also lovely and worth the walk.
Great way to peek into the life that was Leonardo da Vinci. Walking through the halls and the last place where he stood was a delight. Such a great mind in history. The workshop and Kitchen were a joy to see.
Beautiful Castle, inside you can find many inventions from Leonardo da Vinci. The Castle itself is small but its a must to go. Its cozy and if you are into engineering or war objects it is perfect!
Leonardo da Vinci's last home. His workshop is amazing.
Wonderful experience! Not crowded at this time.
