Leonardo3 Museum

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan

The Basics

Leonardo3 focuses on Leonardo as Renaissance man, both engineer and artist. Some of the physical models on display have never been built before, and all are constructed according to Leonardo's illuminated drawings. In addition, the exhibit includes a digital restoration ofThe Last Supper and a number of musical instruments. You can explore the museum independently or with the help of an audio guide in English, and there are a number of hands-on displays and touch screens that further explain the machines and models.

A visit to this engaging exhibition is easily combined with a tour of Milan's most famous sights, including the Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) and Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco). Leonardo3 is also one of the museums included in the Milano Card pass.

Small but very interesting. The English translations next to each exhibit were kind of sparse. But all in all very enlightening.

Leonardo3 The World of Leonardo: Tickets for the Interactive Exhibition
It was an interesting tour. I did think the exhibition would cover either two floors or a larger area. However, some interesting art works. It was informative as well.

I wanted to spend more time, but it was so hot!! No AC at all and it was 100F outside. The replicas were amazing, though.
