I am fascinated by Leonardo da Vinci’s creations. He was one the foremost creative minds, amazingly far ahead of his time. This museum takes all that, has recreations from his drawings, which you CANNOT TOUCH, with video animations of many of them. All wall text...More

Also see my review for the birth house of Leonardo. There are no originals in the museum. The wings (see pic) are nicely done.

The Museum is set in two sections of the old Castillo in Vinci. One ticket covers both places as well as Leonardo’s birthplace and a small museum that holds reproductions of his major works. The museum is great - has working examples of his inventions...More
