  • Get into the marvellous mind of Leonardo da Vinci - a leading artist and intellectual of the Italian Renaissance
  • See (and try) 200 wooden machines and over 50 working models drawn from da Vinci’s codes - including flying machines, anatomical drawings, a machine gun, and a bicycle,
  • Discover 9 new exhibits created with the latest hologram technology

History and engineering fans rejoice - here's a place where you can play and learn at the same time. This exhibition is dedicated to the towering genius of Leonardo da Vinci. But it isn't just plans and models; this one-of-a-kind exhibition includes life-sized replicas of his creations - some of which you can even use. Plus it's got a newly launched animated hologram section. Step into da Vinci's world.

Did you know that even though credit went to Sebastien Lenormand for pioneering modern parachuting in 1783, Leonardo da Vinci came up with the idea a few hundred years earlier? That's just one example of how this Renaissance man was years ahead of his time. Even 500 years later his ideas can astound.

And this exhibition showcases his genius to great effect. There's a huge array of mechanical, scientific, military and aviation inventions to explore. All have been built using his original drawings for reference, and help you not just understand his work, but see what his genius was capable of creating.

The exhibition features more than 200 machines including 51 reconstructed working models. But the creatives involved went even deeper - there are 9 animated holograms that help recreate the Renaissance man's ideas.

Nice cheap little way to get rid of an hour, it’s basic, but we wanted a nice easy sleazy way of learning more about Da Vinci and we got it. You’ll be done in an hour max.

I was expecting it more interactive for visitors. They would at least make virtual riality for visitors to feel how things were working

Ίσως το καλύτερο στη Ρώμη..ιδιοφυΐα πραγματικά..φοβερές ιδέες,κάτι το διαφορετικό από το «πολεμικό» Κολοσσαίο,το θρησκευτικό πάνθεον ή τις «γραφικές» piazzas και με πολύ ωραία σουβενίρ για δωράκια

There were lots of wooden models of Da Vinci’s inventions, made from his drawings. There were good explanations of each model in several languages to read displayed clearly by the relevant exhibit. Some of the models were working so you could turn handles to see how they worked. The gift shop had some different items that we had not seen elsewhere including some models to make at home of some of the inventions on display.
