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.

Comparing with Lucca which is very crowded, Vinci is a beautiful small city in the lights of a Tuscany sunset. It worth to go up in the tower and admire the landscape. Of course exposition of Leonardo's inventions it is very interesting.

how many times have we not seen in books, magazines, some of the drawings of machines/devices that Leonardo had invented. Yet it was often difficult to understand what these machines were doing, how they were actually working. Here engineers have worked out the plans, and you can see either the machines (sometimes in a reduced scale model) or a 3d... More

A must see! What a brilliant man, ahead of his time! Fascinating inventions and ideas. Leonardo demonstrated his talents not only as a superb painter but also as a scenographer, poet, architect, engineer, sculptor, and inventor. It is impossible to spell out all his works. You won't be disappointed!

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
