Actually, this visit was not as impressive as a few years ago, I think they pulled some of the most impressive pieces to show at the expo in Milan. There was also a rolling exhibit of his work in Rome at the Piazza della Popolo, I think it was, but it is still a great exhibit of his creative genius.... More

If you are interested in da Vinci and his inventions you must see this museum. Good service at reception is a positive thing in this museum too.

A bit disappointed to be honest as we were hoping that the exhibits would be hands on/interactive. You can push an occasional button but that is about it. It would be much more enjoyable if you actually could use/see some of the inventions working. We made a special trip to attend, but it wasn't really worth it. If your passing... More

We drove to Vinci specifically to see this museum because of the achievements the man made in his lifetime. It was interesting but not captivating (and a bit expensive at 10 Euro compared to other European/Italian attractions). Most of the exhibits are only models of his ideas and the bulk of any descriptions are NOT in English so the Audio... More

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
