An excellent exhibition mostly on his machines. The audio guide is a must if you are to benefit fully from the experience. The buildings in which the exhibits are housed are also beautiful and the view from the tower is gorgeous.

So much to learn - would definately recommend the audio tour. The museum itself is set in the beautiful ruins of a little town on top of a hill.
