The highlight of the museum was the models created from the drawings in Leonardo's Codex Atlanticus. The models included everyday machinery, military weapons, and ornithology. One needs to keep in mind the models reflect the mind of a genius who thought of things centuries before they were put into production. Amazing! The rest of the museum has scientific and technologic... More

This is a big museum so it is important to focus on key areas. We went to the Leonardo da Vinci section.This included a range of drawings and models that had been constructed recently based on those drawings. Best of all for us were the anatomical drawings. This is a strong recommendation. As usual with all museums some areas were... More

Very cool museum. Specially that you can see the hand writing of L. davinci and his way of thinking in order to invent new machines.

Far from the Duomo, close to Santa Maria delle Grazie. Interesting museum, many inventions of Leonardo (I would have liked some of them to be interactive). Clock colection was also interesting, telecommunications as well, it is a surprisingly rich museum.

Get ready to sepnd the whole if you are a Science fan. Fantastico! The real understanding what a remarkable man was Leonardo. So remarkable that it looks science fiction. Miniatures of lots of his projects, inventions, AMAZING! While I was looking at all these creations I recalled that that man found time to paint the... Mona Lisa!!! And the Last... More

Take a few hours if you love this kind of thing but for the rest of us non science geeks it has a limited appeal. Much of it is simply too specialized. But that said it has general displays like the submarine, trains, planes and boats that appeals to most. For me the highlight were the models of Da Vinci's... More

Easily spend 3+ hours here with displays to entertain anyone with any interest in the history of technology and the industrial revolution. Early metal-forging and metal-working equipment displayed. Seems like every major city in Italy has a da Vinci museum but this one is so much more.

Excellent couple of hours at the museum. So much to see from a tin can to a submarine. Costs €10.00, We got 25% off because we had Milano railway card. I recommend going to this attraction.

We did not go to the Last Supper painting - but spent some time in the da Vinci exhibition. We could study Leonardo's mechanical drawings in detail and understand the techniques and process used in completing his Last Supper and the Mona Lisa.

If you have an interest in science, radio, computing, measurement, metallurgy etc, or if you have curiosity and want to know how the world of science works, spend a day in this extensive museum. If you are a child take your parents, and either explain science to them, and/or enjoy for yourself the hands-on exhibits. Look in at the watchmaker's... More
