The area
Address
Neighborhood: San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

This museum is fun, and it's really cool that you can actually touch and play with the various contraptions that Da Vinci came up with. My only complaint (if we can call it that) is that it seems a bit small and put together in a bit of a hurry. Otherwise, a fun experience!

We chose to visit the Leonardo Da Vinci museum on our last day in Venice, when we run out of things to do.
It was 8€ per person (6€ for children 7 and over/students and free for children 6 and under) and 1€ for the audio guide.
The audioguide was at times a repetition of what was written on the walls. I was very impressed by de descriptions next to each piece on exhibition, most of it was translated in 5 or 6 languages (inc: Italian, English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian).
The Museum is split over two floors, the ground floor goes over the artwork and codex and a bit of Da Vinci’s life. Upstairs is where the fun begins, they have many of Da Vinci’s creations in wood which you get to play with.
Overall it was a good activity which filled an hour or so of our day but I found it a bit too expensive for what it was, especially as the artwork were copies. Nonetheless it is a great museum if you have kids as they get to play and learn at the same time.

Such an interesting place with a lot of his inventions actually made to show you how ingenious his designs were.

This is more than the paintings and art of Leonardo Da Vinci. The museum has working replica's of Da Vinci's many inventions, the flying machine, war machines, mathematical modelling and engineering research that Da Vinci devoted much of his life to. There are also analyses of his finer pieces of art work, and a great exhibit into his studies of the human body that influenced his painting. Really enjoyed the whole tour.

A small and expensive “museum” dedicated to Leonardo. A trap hidden by black curtains. Do not waste your money, unless you did not see anything else about Léo.

Hello 108lcc, we are very disappointed about your review. Our structure has 4.4 stars on all the tour operators pages that we are working with. It would be difficult to reach such a hight point if the museum wouldn't have been a well done exhibition full of interactive and didactical information. We are very sorry for the bad experience that you had and we are sure that you've been on the other Leonardo da Vinci Museum ( from San Barnaba's Square) with whom we don't have any connection

It is fantastic to know more about this real genius! He could paint, sculp, create war machines. Wel, various kinds of machines which you can play with at the museum. He also studied anatomy, optics, architecture!

This is not a Museum as it doe snot show any original work from Leonardo da Vinci. It is a small exhibition with replicas of his painting and drawings, and with some small scale wooden machines he drawn. The explications are pretty good and you can learn a lot about Leonardo. Still a ticket at 8e is an exagerated price for such a small and short exhibition.

This is a great experience and very reasonable. I'd highly recommend the Audio guide. We learnt a lot and there's a ton of practical models to play with. Most enjoyable and highly recommended.

I was expecting to come into a museum that held da Vinci's works but all it was, was his work printed on copy paper and they talk about it. Upstairs showed his inventions which was better because you would actually mess around with them. But it's super small and a complete disappointment. I spent maybe 20 mins in there.

Go see this! The museum gives a great overview of all works and life of Leonardo. There are working examples of his inventions which you can try out. There is also a cool virtual reality experience. If you are interested in the work of this amazingly intelligent and talented man, go visit
