  • Get into the marvellous mind of Leonardo da Vinci - a leading artist and intellectual of the Italian Renaissance in one of Rome's most beautiful buildings owned by the Vatican
  • See (and try) 200 wooden machines and 65 working models drawn from da Vinci's codes - including flying machines, anatomical drawings, a machine gun, and a bicycle
  • Discover the future with nine new exhibits created with the latest hologram technology, then go back to the past by visiting the remains of a burial temple dating back to 43 BC

History and engineering fans rejoice - here's a place where you can play and learn at the same time. See and use life-sized replicas of Leonardo da Vinci's creations. Don't forget the animated hologram section. And when you're done, check out an underground burial temple in the same building!

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.

Here in one of Rome's most beautiful buildings, the Palazzo della Cancelleria, owned by the Vatican, see a huge array of mechanical, scientific, military and aviation inventions, all built using da Vinci's original drawings for reference.

With more than 200 machines, including 65 reconstructed working models and nine animated holograms, you'll feel like you're looking at the inner workings of his mind.

Stick around and check out the upper floor, which houses the Vatican court: the Sacra Rota and the Sala dei Cento Giorni, frescoed by Vasari. You can also access the remains of a burial temple dating back to 43 BC. It's reality so awesomely ingrained in fantasy, it's bound to be a highlight of your trip.

Nice little place, you can spend around 30-60 minutes here.

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.
