I wandered in to this exhibit by chance, and was completely captivated for almost an hour. There are many tableaux of DaVinci's machines, as well as more modern art expressing wonderment of his creations and discoveries. Definitely worth going into if you're rambling around Lucca.

Spent about 45 mins . Interesting to view models of Leonardos ideas. Some are working models which you can try. Slightly aloof attendant not particularly welcoming
