    Superb family visit (2 adults + 2 children 6 and 10 years old). The guide was very friendly and spoke perfect French, she was aimed at children as well as adults (children "put at ease" did not hesitate to ask questions which have always been answered). After presenting the place to us in a few words, we traveled with the inventions of L. de Vinci. The fact of being able to activate the machines makes it possible to better understand the operation and makes it possible to keep the attention of the children while giving more detailed explanations: each of us has found his account there ... To advise without hesitation with children . Again thank you for this visit deemed excellent by the children (and parents)

    Visite effectué avec Agostino. Il est juste incroyable, explicit et vraiment très clair et précis dans ses propos. Il mélange sérieux et humour tout en ayant des références de films et séries…ma financé et moi avons adoré la visite privée donc nous étions juste 3 avec Agostino, nous avons aussi parlé la de nos vie personnel. Je conseille très fortement ce guide 10/10 ce n’est pas assez pour noté Agostino.

    The museum itself is OK, but not a must. We booked the tour in German, but was then briefly changed to English (guide not available). Guide was nice, but unfortunately spoke very poor English. The tour took about half as long as announced.
