Overall rating

If you are travelling with kids, this is a perfect blend of fun and culture to make the site-seeing more bearable for the younger ones. Even without children, it is a sweet treat, a unique chance to see all Leonardo's "inventions" braught to life. Every device and tool can be operated and examined making this an interactive experience that we don't often get in a museum. It is not very big but depending on the level of your interest you could spend between 30 and 60 minutes exploring all the exhibited items, even more if you get fascinated by some of the machines.

Easy to buy ticket ahead. Easy entrance. This was a hands-on interactive museum that explained so many of DaVinci's inventions and interests. We enjoyed it!

We got tickets in advance and didn't wait to enter the museum. Everything worked out as planned.

Fun for the family. What a fascinating man with a beautiful mind.

Informative and fun exhibition. Great for all ages.
