  • Interesting museum because we can see the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. You can manipulate the inventions and we can see the reproductions of paintings. We were given a book to have explanations in french on the paintings. However I find it a bit expensive for a short visit (12 euros/adult and € 10 /ado)

  • The Museum even though it's not very big it is very interesting. They offer samples of machines and projects designed by Da Vinci, which gave rise to inventions. Also you can see at the Museum some replicas of his famous paintings. Very good to visit family.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
