an all-round journey to discover the innovations of the past that improve those of the present that project us into the future, we didn't think there was so much to see and unfortunately we didn't have time to see everything. I recommend to plan at least 3/4 hours of visit to the museum

Such an interesting museum. But make sure not to spend all of your time in all other sectors and get tired until you reach Leonardo's section. It takes minimum of 2 hours.

I recommend 100%. We booked our tickets a day before the trip and the prices were really good.

Very cool, it seemed for children but the exhibitions are very cool

Great fun and even some interactive activities to do.
