  • 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.

  • Wonderful and incredible experience through the story and the creations of this great genius! I love this museum! I payed 10euro but the value is right considering the beauty of the place.
  • Although the museum has some interesting models, it is light on any meaningful content and the lady at the pay counter was so unwelcoming and miserable that we almost didn't enter at all. There is no excuse for this and it is a terrible advert for the museum. I run my own business and if I ran this one, she'd be looking for another job. Very disappointing.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting exposition. Lots of facts and interactive machines. I'd give it a 5, but quite a few things were broken which is a shame. Still worth visiting.
  • Aamazing place. Lots of da Vinci's creations made out of wood on a full scale and you can play with them. Some of them were broken though
