What a great way to see some of the inventions of Da Vinci. Would have liked to see more of his art, but he was such an amazing man. I did not know the Horse was there. We missed that. We did see all of the museum there though and they were great. :) Highly recommend! Great place to stroll... More

We spent a very interesting afternoon at this museum in Vinci, which was full of scale models of his designs and drawings, together with computer animated films of the designs working. It's a well laid out museum housed in a well restored medieval castle on a hill in the centre off the town, and the views from the top are... More

Can not say enough great things about this town. You must see the BRONZE horse he made in the town square for his Uncle. Walk around the town, it's so pretty and the mountain views are picturesque. I get a chuckle reading the reviews by men who want ot play with the models made by the museum. They'd be broken... More

we enjoyed seeing the models on display based on Leonardo's designs and drawings. Also enjoyed the visit to his birthplace 3 km out of the town of Vnci.

A very pleasant town and easy to locate the museum. The displays were very informative and allowed for visitors to visualize and see in person the brilliance that was put into his craft. A wonderful experience overall!

It was certainly interesting to see but it's not easy to get too and it's a small museum and it ends pretty quick. Better places to go spend some time.

As a huge Leonardo fan I was disappointed with this museum. None of Leonardo's artwork is included, or any of his original folios (they were purchased by The British Royal Family post-WW2), and therefore there is not that much to see. It would NOT be worth a long drive to me. The exhibits are not suitable for children. However, the... More

We planned and included Vinci in our tour of Tuscany and we took guided car trip. When we reached the place Vinci in the morning abt 9:20, the scene was crisp and great views and weather. Plenty of olive farms and vineyards as you drive. The museum houses Da Vinci's drawings and models - covering physics , pulleys / cranes,... More

We decided to take a side trip and get off the train station at Empoli, which was a stop between Florence and Pisa. I'd read years ago that there was a museum here about Leonardo di Vinci as this is where he was born. Once off the train, we caught a bus to the museum. A bit of a language... More

Vinci was my favorite city in Italy, and the museum there is definitely worth a visit. It was disappointing not to be able to take pictures or touch, as there are so many fascinating things to see. The view of the city from the museum is wonderful. be prepared for walking uphill (and down).
