  • Cool museum in the town of Vinci, it's in parts and pieces so be sure and check out the other sites included with entrance. We only had a few hours but it was more than enough time to see the town. Don't miss the video room from the tower section of the museum, a very cool multimedia display space!
  • It's a village museum with a beautiful cafe in the middle, small streets and a tower with an amazing view from the top. From the 3 objectives (Birth Place, Paintings and Museum) this is the only one which deserves the time. We spent hours inside analyzing the machinery (building machines, war machines, flying machines and so on).
