  • We returned with friends in August after many years, the Museum presents numerous new pavilions, Leoardo da Vinci and his inventions, from CERN in Geneva, at the satellites and aerospace material including a fragment of Lunar rock (not to be missed) the submarine Toti explored inside by appointment to the catamaran-Prada Luna Rossa in the naval room and so much more a beautiful experience for young and old, still able to surprise. Recommended.

  • Get ready to walk the Museum is extensive. There is a lot of variety, ancient, contemporary, recreated parts of da Vinci, etc.

  • Museum full of surprises and emotions. You pass the dawn of science with Leonardo at CERN in Geneva, you can admire unique pieces in addition to TOTI (submarine) planes and cars. Have to book the tours in advance.

  • The first corridor and exhibits don't create a very good impression, but once you're past those this is actually a very good museum. A decent variety of exhibits and some interesting interactive items (sadly not all in working order). The museum is spread over quite an area so there is a lot of walking involved, but it's worth the effort to explore all of the corridors. Would benefit from some improved signage inside, or an "official" route to follow so that you don't miss anything.
  • It's quite a big musem. It's worth your time. There's even a submarine but visit it during the morning as it's outside, and suring noon it's closed inside and cant visit it beause it's very hot inside.
  • This is an awesome museum not only of Leonardo da Vinci's thoughts and inventions, technology in general and how things work. You could spend days here. There is too much to see in one day, so prioritize what you want to get out of it.
  • Great loads of stuff really enjoyed the Davinci expo and all the trains. Lots to see.
  • We expected to find more designs of Leonardo da Vinci. However there were only some small models on display. The museum is quite large and the roadmap is not straight forward as a result we were a bit afraid to miss something. We were a bit disappointed as most of the explaining signs were only in Italian.
