  • Download the free app and get the combo ticket for €11 as it's great value to see the birthplace and the separate site showing his paintings in hi-res. Most descriptions are in English but the app...

  • Interesting museum with drawings of Leonardo brought to life. It was empty on the day despite being Sunday and it had a great panoramic view of the town in one of the buildings (the view's last entry is 30 mins before closing so be aware!). Beware that you cannot touch anything in the museum which is a shame. It would be so much not interesting and educational if that would be possible. They argue that the models are art in themselves but they could have got simpler versions for exploration. Videos do not always explain enough and there is a lot of text everywhere. The museum is definitely not for children, they would be bored.
  • Its a good museum.This one is aimed more at adults, if you have young children then I recommend checking out the interactive leonardo experience in Florence.
