  • I'm sorry, but from a country that always complains that "with art we could make ends meet ..." and that "the State things never work ...", in one of the (and I say this from toscano ultra 40 year old) the most beautiful I have ever seen, not in Italy but in the world really be pleasure trip that 82) arrive at the museum dedicated to the most famous of Italy , and find, two small rooms are dedicated to the study of Anatomy (indeed a because that after there are the frames), in one of the rooms (combined with that of textile machinery) an incomprehensible panel devoted to "the dark side of money" (what is a anti capitalist poster?? what the hell to do with the story of leonardo???), then go inside the Castle/Palace and find that no None of the machines in the hall dedicated to the study of optics would work properly and must therefore "improvise" with my daughter to explain what they wanted to say ... after that, FINE. It's a shameful thing. If I think that a school can travel more than 50 km for adare to visit this misery I feel sorry for them. Better bring a book on leonardo and get to sit on a lawn to read it together. Useless, poorly managed, completely avoidable. Think that during the trip (thankfully) I pontificate to my daughter that we were going to see the museum dedicated to the most famous of Italy, of how great etc ... for God ... I'm not saying to avoid because surely can't hurt, but please, "abandon all hope ye who enter here".

  • It's emozionnte visit Vinci, know that Leonardo was born here. I had to Win for work and I decided to visit the village. As promised divine.

  • Excuse my frankness but this museum is perhaps more suitable for families (visits with the kids) because all inventions are as it were at hand; but I haven't found anything new on Leonardo. Perhaps the only interesting fact is that you visit more places including the House of Leonardo. 11 euros on the ticket price.

  • 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.
  • Insight into da vinci machines and their use. Replicas were amazing as you could get hands on and give them a go. Copy of his most famous paintings. We'll worth a visit
  • Good little museum full of replicas of the vehicles and machines he designed.
  • As a mechanical engineer I got more out of this collection than most people would. The model inventions were simple enough for most of the family to enjoy but the descriptions of the incentive and painting replicas added a different perspective
  • 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.
