Step into the world of Leonardo da Vinci - a visionary painter, inventor, engineer, scientist, humanist and philosopher who spent his life unraveling the mysteries of nature and physics. Despite passing away in 1519, his legacy lives on to this day, inspiring creative minds in literature, film and even the world of video games. At the Château du Clos Lucé, where Leonardo spent his last days, visitors can experience the genius of the Master firsthand. Explore his life's work and feel as though he was just there moments before. Leonardo da Vinci's passion for imagining the future and his dream of making men fly make him an immortal icon that still fascinates us, 500 years later.

  • Skip the line and explore the home of Leonardo da Vinci, the stunning Château du Clos Lucé in the Loire Valley
  • Wander the ornate rooms and lush gardens in which the great Renaissance genius lived and worked during his twilight years
  • Admire faithfully recreated models of da Vinci's most famous inventions, and see artifacts from his time here, as well as paintings from his disciples, and lots more

Welcome to the ultimate celebrity crib. This beautiful château in France's Loire Valley was the final home of Leonardo da Vinci, and as you might expect, the Florentine master left his mark on the place.

Da Vinci arrived here in 1516, with a painting called the Mona Lisa under his arm – the rest is history. Make your way inside with this skip-the-line ticket, and explore the former home of the great Renaissance man.

Leonardo made quite the name for himself with King Francis I, and after being given the title of the king’s premier painter, engineer, and architect, he was gifted Clos Lucé. It was here that he spent the final years of his life, and it is here that now presents a series of galleries devoted to his work.

On the ground floor, join an immersive show where Da Vinci’s 17 masterpieces are brought together in a single space. You’ll be given the keys to understanding the artist’s process, from his initial sketches to the completed masterpiece.

In the upper gallery, gain a better understanding of Da Vinci’s world outside of art and discover the mind that also worked on civil, religious and military matters. Learn about the architect, town planner, and director of shows. The gallery shines a light on Leonardo’s passion for mathematics and geometry. See his world brought to life through life-size models, digital tables, 3D animations, video games, and more.

It doesn't take a genius to know this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Wonderful visit! Even more to see now than the last time we visited (in ‘97!) and we loved it then. Really enjoyable and good value.
