  • The Tuscan hills welcome harmoniously this beautiful complex dedicated to the genius and works of Leonardo. Nice

  • This museum has been cleverly adapted for wheelchair visitors. Very interesting.Be warned though that classes making educational trips can make the small areas very congested. 
  • Family with teenager, we liked. It really could be better organized and developed in a more dynamic way. The potential of this structure is enormous but exploited insuffismaent. Finally, we liked.

  • Very small-sized exhibit. It's a shame because they could've made the museum 10 times more interesting with DaVinchi stuffs. Also, cannot use the firenze card.
  • Could have been fun but the lady at the counter was a horrible person and turned us off from the museum. We walked in with our Firenze cards around our necks and before I could even finish asking if the card was allowed there she wagged her finger and shook her head and was said no. I said "oh I thought at the ticket booth they said it would work" and she continued with a string of "no's". It's fine that it doesn't work, it's only 7 euros, but when we asked her how much admission was instead of saying "7 euros" she pointed at this cardboard thing and said "the price is right there". It would have take. Her probably less energy to say "7 euros" but she wanted to be horrible and she succeeded.
  • Less of a museum and more a series of displays. This could be great if you (or more likely your kids) could interact with all of the displays. Many are "do not touch" or simply locked down. It is a few small rooms with good multi lingual cards but relatively quick. I went in with 3 kids (9 to 15) and they were good for about 30 minutes. Entrance was €22 for the four of us which seemed high for how quickly the kids went through. I read everything and was only a little bit behind them.
  • This is a fun interactive Museum that teaches all about Da Vinci's inventions and paintings. I really enjoyed it.
  • A lot of recreations. Even a few interactive ones
