  • 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.
