This was awesome and highly recommended - especially if you are into mechanics/science/engineering. Great staff - very friendly and knowledgable. Enjoyed also the fact that the museum was partly interactive too.

Makes all that stuff we learnt in school seem so real and relevant. Many excellent examples of where experiential thought and practise transformed into modern applications of today’s manufacturing and processes.

I loved my visit to this museum. I enjoyed making the machines work and found the written information very helpful. Anyone over about 6 years old would learn a tremendous amount by interacting with the exhibits.

The museum is promoted heavily with many posters on display around the area. Coming from an engineering and construction background I was especially interested in learning more about Archimedes. I excitedly drove for two hours to visit the Archimedes museum but was very disappointed -...More

This museum is part interactive. Problem is, the lighting is so bad! To get the information of all the facinating modells, you need to read the notes. And the roomes are realy dark! It was not my best visit

Interesting but not fantastic. Some exibits can be handled but some vere not functioning. Lighting was very low which can make it difficult for visual impairments.

Suitable for adults and children alike, this museum gives an insight into Leonardo's continuation of the ideas of Archimedes. Reasonably priced and entertaining for around an hour.
