  • I have really enjoyed models of Leonardo's machines. I have also enjoyed exhibits about human vision and how Leonardo used perspective in his paintings. Now I think that Leonardo da Vinci was more of an engineer than an artist.
  • Recommended for a visit, but lacks interactivity which should be expected... also, why don't they have all in English as well?! However, the view from the tower is spectacular and alone worth the visit ;)
  • Very interesting but €11 is too much for what it offers. Find some scale models of some of Leonardo's sketches. Poor info on the mldels. Also able to visit Leonardo's birth house. If you are in Vinci might be worth to stop by, not worth to get out of your way for this though.
  • Small museum with some very interesting exhibits... Half this museum is located in Vinci Castle; the other half in a building off one of the town's squares. One ticket gets you onto both halves, as well as Leonardo's "Place of Birth", a couple of miles up the road. The museum itself provides a fascinating insight into the colossal number of inventions made by what is indisputably one of the greatest men in history. The halls are lined with dozens of models, ranging from the infamous "Battle Tank" to a full size version of Leonardo's glider. All in all, the museum is well worth seeing, and to do it properly, you'll probably need at least three hours. Indeed, setting an afternoon aside, and then ending up at dinner in one of Vinci's tavernas makes for a very leisurely excursion.
  • Very little info in English. Not child friendly - "Do not touch" signs for most installations - only a few were interactive.
