The museaum is quite small. 10 euro a limited collection of items is a little overpriced for us. However, it is an interesting place especially for schools, since it displays a lot of devices Leonardo invented or improved from older ideas. The best thing is that you get to play with the devices to see how they work. Hope the... More

We stopped by on a tour. We were rushed because we only had a small amount of time here. It was interesting but not captivating. We were familiar with a lot of his inventions abut some were surprising. I particularly liked the scuba suit. Some of the exhibits were only explain in Italian. I realize I was in Italy and... More

For the enthusiast this would be a good visit. Not for me and was done in 30 minutes. The view from the balcony was good and if you got a little extra time and don't mind paying the entrance fee you will enjoy it. Would help if the signage and information was a little clearer and they offered more languages... More

We came here for the reviews and was very disappointed. The reviews were for the town and yes awesome town. The museum was a huge waste time and money. The house of Leonardo was worth it but not the museum.

In the sweet little city of Vinci, be sure to visit the da Vinci museum in a castle structure. Models and sketches of his creative, inventor side, gives one a new appreciation of the Da Vinci genius.

The museum is situated with the most wonderful views of the Vinci countryside. And that is reason enough to visit. But once here, you see the inventions of Leonardo in three dimensions… the helicopter, the bicycle, clocks, the tank…they are all here, brought to life from the pages of his journals. It's a perfect learning experience for anyone, of every... More

Wonderful visit to the beautiful village of Vinci. We had been before and took our teenage children. Hands on exhibits, interesting facts, great audio tour, helpful staff and wonderful grounds. Really worth a visit and lovely to come out of the city into this hillside town.

Well worth a visit to his museum in Vinci. Some very interesting inventions during his active life. Try a pizza at the local pizzeria down the road, we had some of the best pizzas in Italy at this outdoor place. Enjoy you drive through grape and olive areas together with local Italians on their bicycles. Ciao.

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
