On the plus side there is air-conditioning. On the down side, there's not alot of information about Da Vinci himself, and several models on display have disclaimers stating that they may have never been developed or used by Da Vinci.

Una exposición muy instructiva
, Feb 2020
Exposición muy bien montada sobre Leonardo, primero hay una serie de máquinas, muchísimas máquinas, muchas de ellas con las que se puede interactuar y ver su inventiva y luego se pasa a una exposición pictórica donde con la audioguía te va explicando con bastante nivel de detalle cada cuadro, con se hizo y por qué y en qué circunstancias. Todo muy recomendable
