Enter the mind of history's biggest overachiever in a fully hands-on experience that lets you interact with Leonardo da Vinci and his greatest creations.

Suitable for all audiences, this unique exhibition has provoked wonder and curiosity in millions of visitors, and received appreciation and recognition for its importance by both Italian and foreign institutions for over 20 years.

Over 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci designed flying machines, robots, submarines, an underwater breathing apparatus, a suspension bridge, and many other incredible inventions.

At the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, you can try many of these outlandish machines. Discover how many of Leonardo’s inventions and ideas are still in use today, such as excavation and lifting machinery, helicopters, bicycles, water skis, and even machine guns!

Enter the room of Leonardo's mirrors to discover how his studies on light inspired the invention of photography and projection. Take a picture next to his helicopter and armored tank. Engage in interactive workshops, and build some of his most interesting inventions, including the famous mobile bridge, the dome, and the polyhedron.

You can also take a jaw-dropping immersive journey into Leonardo's world of machines using Oculus 3D. Watch his visions come to life with the aid of state-of-the-art VR technology!

By blending authentic recreations, graphic visualizations, and touchscreen displays, this cutting-edge museum paints a remarkably complete picture of a real Renaissance man.

Very nice to see in practise what Leonardo all invented or just thought about the possibilities.... You can actively work with the inventions and the virtual reality viewer is a very nice closing element of this small, but nice museum. Nice shop too.

Very fun and interactive museum, quite small but a lot to do. Would recommend to anyone visiting with children and has 2 hours to spare.

Not a large museum but very complete with working models of many of his inventions. The small room with his important art was unique. Pictures of his paintings were displayed over lighted screens and they jumped out at you. We sat and stared at the last supper for ten minutes!
Just a note. There are two da Vinci museums within a couple of blocks of each other. Google cane up with the wrong one. Be sure to go to the one on Servi street.
