We found this museum very interesting and definitely worth a visit. I don't think 10 euros was too expensive, there were a lot of exhibits and we really did learn something of the man himself. Recommend a stop in Vinci, it's a very pretty town.

I had no idea the Leonardo Di Vinci was into weapons and military strategy. An artist, and inventor yes,but tank builder and multiple shot weapons, I had no idea. Also credited with the mathematical formula for the most spectacular brilliant cut diamond. You might learn a few new facts if you family does not rush you through too fast. Love... More

So if you're a fan of extravagant tinkering and "what if" fanciful sci-fi scenarios -- and most especially if you're a structural engineer -- then this earnest little museum is for you, sort of. Filled with often unrealized Leonardo musings -- many of which were at first incorrectly interpreted -- it is a weird juxtaposition of Victorian Jules Verne-type models... More

Think I went in expecting to see a lot more so in that respect I was a tad disappointed. Quite small but still worth a visit. Advised we'd need 2 hours to get round the museum by a friend , we were there about 30 mins and had taken in all it had to offer. Definitely worth a visit but... More

Leonardo is great. The museum isn't. Still worth a visit though, as a few of ghe displays are good and the museum's setting in central Vinci is delightful.

We enjoyed this small but quite intimate museum covering the art and genius of Leonardo. In particular the full size, high quality reproductions of his paintings in the church were very moving. The lack of crowds made it possible to properly take in the amazing artistry. Access to the tower exhibits was a bit difficult as the lift was not... More

A fantastic remembrance for Leonardo da Vinci. Well laid out exhibits which show the other side of his artistic nature. He did so much more than paint.

This little museum is well worth a visit if you find Leonardo da Vinci to be inspiring. See and touch some of his works recreated. Worth visiting.

I have read a lot of negative reviews of this museum but my experience was far from negative. First up there are 2 dedicated museums and not 1. PAy the extra €1 and the €11ticket gets you into all the Leonardo exhibits. The first museum houses an exhibit of inventions which were practical and used at the time of his... More
