The Leonardo da Vinci Museum is located in the Piazza del Popolo in Rome, Italy. It is very easy to find and most noteworthy, is a wonderful museum for children.

Interactive Models

The da Vinci Museum is a showcase of interactive models of futuristic machines and inventions designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Once inside, you will be surprised to find there are more than fifty reconstructions, built entirely from wood. It was quite fun to watch children play with the models while the parents, especially the fathers, were trying to figure out exactly how it really worked!

The machines are divided into five categories that represent the four essential elements of life – water, air, earth, and fire. The largest machine is dedicated to civil machines and other are flying machines, war machines, and mechanical achievements of Leonardo.

Leonardo’s Wing Study

Don’t miss the informative documentary, done in several languages on a large screen, on Leonardo da Vinci’s life and work.

This exhibition is a wonderful experience and well worth the small entrance fee. I will say it is geared more towards children from ages 10 and up.

    Aahh… I’m sure my family will enjoy visiting this museum. We saw some of Da Vinci’s works in Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
