Founded in 1953, The Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology is housed in an early 16th century Olivetan monastery and is named after Leonardo da Vinci, the extraordinary Renaissance intellect who mastered art, science and technology. Through the years they have collected and exhibited objects, machinery and evidence that retrace the key phases of our country’s scientific and technological evolution. The educational activities developed in their collections and interactive labs (i.labs) engage visitors in exciting experiences that lead to the discovery and exploration of science.

There is so much to see that you have to make sure you have a full day. Our first visit was in the afternoon and I felt we rushed round and missed out on lots of things. Outside they have an airplane, submarine and trains which my son loved! There are a lot of interactive displays there which are great for children. (Diane Warburg)
