    Assuming that Leonardo is born really in this House-the captions using prudent expressions like "according to tradition"--the few and bare rooms of the presumed birthplace House a small exhibition of multimedia exhibits that doesn't deserve it at all. The rating is higher than the level bad only thanks to the movie about the life of Leonardo, quite interesting, but unfortunately projected in a small room small and crowded, and most projected alternately in Italian and English. To avoid long lines to wait for your preferred language, it would be useful to insert subtitles in Italian with English audio, and vice versa.

    Just a well renovated house where "perhaps" is born. If you are in the area you can visit without too many expectations.

  • Over-Restored, and of dubious Provenance... The house itself is a decent example of Medieval Tuscan architecture, but overall it feels "new", rather than ancient. This is probably due to the fact that it was rebuilt from its foundations up just a few decades ago. Then there's the fact that no records exist as to it actually having been the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci. The only extant records certify that it was owned by the da Vinci family around the time of Leonardo's birth. If you're doing a tour of the area, this is a place to see along the way. It's not something I would go out of my way to see...
  • Fun to visit but nothing amazing. Location very nice, views and smells and everything.
  • Wonderful Tuscan landscape but not much to see in the museum, only a nice audiovisual about his life
  • The museum doesn't have much aside from an interesting 20 minute video presentation. If you're wanting to visit everything related to Leonardo don't miss it, but other than that it's not worth veering off your path.
  • Very modern with high tech stuff to play with, but also one can imageine how was it when Leonardo was here as a child.
