Since giving something no stars isn't an option on TA, I'm content with giving this museum only one. It was a complete waste of a precious morning and 26 euros. Very little of the museum's displays are in languages other than Italian and the small cards that did feature other

Good morning Matthew, We are really sorry that your visit to our museum was so unsatisfactory. For clarity, the lack of captions that you report is usually compensated by the presence of room sheets in several languages or by miniguides that you can buy at the ticket office . Additionally , you can find the translation in english in the explanatory panels along the museum itinerary. The App of which you speak did not give us utilization problems. This device is specifically designed to facilitate the visitor experience, in fact texts and videos are translated in 4 languages ( English, French, German and Spanish). We thank you for pointing that out, we will check that the App work properly. At last, our collection is one of the oldest example of reconstructed machines designed by studying Leonardo’s drawings. Indeed he never made the machines that he imagined excepted in rare cases of which did not remain any trace. Our museum opened in 1953. Oldest machine models were realized in 1938. At that time the reconstruction of machines was relevant for study and knowledge so the models were not designed to be used by visitor. For that reason the machines in our museum can’t be enlivened by users. Best regards,

This museum includes models, interactive displays, drawings, information panels and an historical timeline dedicated solely to Leonardo's works that are displayed in two separate buildings which are approximately 100 metres apart. The newest building, the late 19th century
