Museum is in 4 parts: two in Vinci itself and two a few miles outside. There is a display of models of Da Vinci’s inventions which is interesting. The museum about his paintings (outside Vinci) is very limited. Needless to say, no original works there.

You can purchase a pass at a central ticket office to allow access to the nearby museum, the nearby tower, the art museum just a short walk down the road, and the birthplace 5 minutes north outside town. Right in front of the museum is a cool church (no ticket needed). We spent about 4 hours doing the museum(s)/tower. For us, the museum and tower were the most interesting. Vinci was a genius! We never knew he was responsible for so many creations, his study of anatomy and art. Beware, there is a competing art museum across the street from the art museum, which is part of your pass. Regarding the birth place out of town; there is not much to see there except a movie which runs alternatively in Italian and English about every 30 minutes.

Well worth a visit. DeVinci was such a complex individual and the museum does a great job of highlighting all of his inventions. He was definitely before his time. Exhibits were well laid out and the view from,the tower was amazing.

Vinci from Da Vinci. Nice but museum wise it’s a bad shadow of Florence. If you come here first and than Florence it’s fine. The otherway around I cannot recommend. Jus replica’s of pictures en wooden models. Barely worth it except the historical element of it

The Museum is located in a beautiful village. It is dedicated to Leonardo’s invention. The Museum has 2 parts in 2 different buildings a new part and the old castell. Be aware that you need first to go to the new building where only there you can purchase tickets. There are family tickets that are worth buying. I suggest to rent an audio device that will help you understand what you see as most of the explanations are in Italian only. Don’t miss at the end the climbing to the top of the tower.

The museum is divided into 4 venues, all of which are pretty small, but well done. One has two floors of mostly models of Leonardo's machines and anatomy. Another contains more variety, and includes a ticket to the top of the tower, with breath taking views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Leonardo actually spent little of his life in this little town, so they have done a good job of preserving what they have including his humble birthplace. Worth a couple of hours for anyone who likes Leonardo's work and art. Definitely climb the tower.

The ticket you buy is valid at 4 different museums, partly 2 in the city (one of which is in the tower) but also the house Leonardo was born in and an art gallery. We only visited the 2 places in the city as we were just passing through. the first museum is quite small but still very interesting. The exhibition consists of copies of sketches and wooden models of Leonardo's inventions. Upstairs you will find his anatomical sketches and get to see his work on the human body. Also in the tower there are models and drawings, but also film viewing as well as an insight into people around him such as church books etc. where he is mentioned.

Well worth a visit, the entire Hamlet is really magical and filled with inspiration and beaty

Dear visitor, thanks for your visit and for your review. We hope you'd come back one day to complete the tour and visit also Leonardo's Birthplace where the atmosphere is charming and you can 'feel' the origin of the genius!! Best regards from Vinci

You're probably going to come here because you're interested in what Leonardo learned and did, and that's a good frame of mind for enjoying the exhibits, which are mostly models and sketches. Its worth downloading the app first and taking the tour of the exhibits to get a feel for what you'll see at the museum. You'll also get a lot of context about the world that Leonardo lived in.

The big disappointment is that the models are static and you can't interact with them. Some of them would benefit for bring touched or shown in use. They feel a bit abstract, unfortunately.

The birthplace and picture exhibits are worth walking up to, too. They might be a good balance for other members of your party, too, if not all are technically minded.

Even if you knew a lot about Leonardos work you'll still be in store for some surprises at the museum. The models were great and thanks to the traveller who recommended getting an English iPod guide for the tour as a lot of the information is not translated into English.
You won't be just experiencing a really good museum but also the wonderful area of Vinci. Its such a beautiful little town and the views are amazing from the tower where the second part of the museum is housed. A great day out for all!

A completely fascinating group of four (4) separate sites. You need to visit each one to appreciate this man's intelligence. His birthplace was great and you could see where he thought through so much of his work with water. The art museum was fantastic in that you could see closeup his paintings - the Mona Lisa (although not the original) was great to see. The Last Supper on the wall added to what we had seen of the original in Milan because we had more time and also the audio visual which outlined each area of the painting was fascinating. The models from some of his drawings were so impressive. And the big benefit - not crowded like Florence would be. Make sure you visit this Museum.
