Great place to visit, really off the tourist trail. Museum is interesting. You must climb the 120 steps up to the top of the tower as the views are amazing.

This museum seems little explored and we had the place almost to ourselves during a group visit. The museum shows some of Leonardo's inventions which are realised in miniature for children to interact with. It is well worth a visit as it explores both his...More

We based in Empoli and caught the bus to Vinci for the day today in order to visit Museo Leonardiano. With mixed reviews, we weren't quite sure what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. Not too expensive at E20 for a family ticket. We...More

You can not touch nothing. It is definitely waste of money. The audio guide is with very low volume and not according to the museum's exhibits. Since it is located in Vinci, and there is nothing to do in this town, it is totally waste...More

The Leonardo Museum is well worth a visit. The museum features replicas of Leonardo’s inventions. There are also shops, a cafe and church and tower to visit. The views and scenery from this site are beautiful. This museum, although small, is well worth spending an...More

I am fascinated by Leonardo da Vinci’s creations. He was one the foremost creative minds, amazingly far ahead of his time. This museum takes all that, has recreations from his drawings, which you CANNOT TOUCH, with video animations of many of them. All wall text...More
