  • On a small space (four rooms), 50 machines designed by Leonardo da Vinci all more fabulous than the other children can manipulate the urge. We realize the genius of the artist since the porpose of 22 works of Leonardo da Vinci reproduction Museum. To discover to all and especially to children

  • The Museum is easy to find, it is pleasant temperature inside and the touch is for all more exciting and more interesting than just read, look listen. Unfortunately, the audio guide in German was out of print, although the Museum was only very sparsely attended - but we got a book free of charge to the read. Another point deduction for defective exhibits (unfortunately not uncommon).

  • Located on a beautiful square (di popolo), the Museum is rather disappointing because it has no tables. We discover only the inventions without understanding everything if we do not master well the Italian or English.

  • An interesting, but small, museum with constructions of some of Leonardo da Vinci's designs that you can get hands on with, use, and see them work. Will probably take most people around an hour to view. More for the engineer minded, if you're more into his art work you'll likely be disappointed. I suspect kids will find this one of the more interesting museums because they can have a play with the exhibits.
  • It's a "just nice" small museum. The museum doesn't have original creations and doesn't show Da Vinci inventions with the relevance he deserved. However, if you like inventions, engineering projects and also Da Vinci history and legacy, go without any fear!
  • Lovely setup but will take roughly 20-30mins of your time. Not worth 10euro entry fee.
  • To small for 8 euro. 5 euro will be fine. Museum is interesting but something is missing. I hope it will change in future.
  • Small but interesting museum of reconstructions of inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci. Great for kids.
