Informative and educative to see and learned that his inventions are still used in our modern time. Worth a visit if you are in Tuscany.

I came across this small museum recently while in Rome for a city break . I really enjoyed myself and found it very informative . Though don't know if any exhibits are the originals , thought Da Vinci ideas and inventions beyond imagination . Truly an amazing person . In my opinion worth the € 10 entrance fee .

Leonardo was a great inventor, and at this museum you get to see models of many of his inventions. He was clearly way ahead of his time, and many of his drawings were used for centuries after his death. I would recommend taking the time to visit this museum, any engineers would like it!

good value with joint ticket, 7 euros or 8 with birthplace , normally three extra. lovely small little town great view, four or five good sculptures around but more of interest if you want to see models of macchines not art. Took less than half an hour yo go round. Home is 3 km outside town, only really two rooms... More

This great man deserves a better museum, especially in his home town. I am a big fan or Leonardo, I walk away very disappointed. Go to the Museo Galileo in Florence instead, that is 5 star!

It's a small museum but has some good displays of da Vinci's creation . My 5 year old son was very curious and interested to see and try out some if them. We spent almost 30-45 mins here . Kids below 6 are free and rest is 7 $ .

This exhibition pales in insignificance to his house in Amboise and cost double the price. I'd probably recommend giving it a miss. However there a beautiful views to be seen from the top of the building it is housed in. The trip is worth it just for this.
