  • This museum allows us to dive into the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. The different inventions are well explained (on panels with a French translation!), and it is even possible to manipulate some. Very nice!

  • We visited this museum located in the piazza del poppolo. Leonardo da Vinci was a great genius and his work is beautiful, but the Museum does not allow us to understand. We cannot understand the meaning of the market of this museum. More positive point you can use the machines he created but without really understanding why they were created. 23 euros for 2 people is still quite expensive. I don't go back especially.

  • There is no original da Vinci art here. What they have done is create models of all of his inventions. It's a great idea but the museum doesn't hold your interest for more than 10 minutes or so. There is no restroom. If you ask they will direct you to the Burger King across the street.
  • The museum was not well organized. There is no original opera from Leonardo. Few new information. Poor info for big price museum.
  • Certainly worth of that hour or two you can spend in museum. You can touch and play with almost all examples of Da Vinci's ideas - these have been built according to his notes. You can also learn about Leonardo's himself. Someone wrote it already: no toilet, and this is why I took one star off.
  • Good hands on examples of Leonardo's machines. Worth a visit along with the Piazza. Only down side is there is no bathroom and had to leave and come back
  • Interesting place to learn about Da Vinci's projects and inventions! Good for all ages! It's located in a charming square in Rome.
