Insider tip:

The Leonardo da Vinci Museum is an interesting museum in the middle of Venice. On display are especially replicas of Da Vinci's inventions made of wood. The genius made some great inventions, but he was also one of the greatest painters and sculptors of all times. The most famous painting in the world, the Mona Lisa, was painted by Leonardo da Vinci.

The Museum of the Genius is in the heart of Venice behind the famous Frari Church. The most famous of all the Scuole of Old Venice, the Scuola Grande di San Rocco with world famous works of art is directly opposite.

In several rooms on the upper floor are the replicas of the inventions, mostly made of wood. Highlights are, for example, the flying machines, including a kind of helicopter. But Leonardo da Vinci also invented weapons such as machine guns and armored cars. According to our estimates, there are a total of over 50 machines, devices and the like in the museum. Each one is very interesting, there is a small description for each object in about 6 languages including German.

It is also great that you can touch and participate in many of the machines, you can move levers and the like. For everyone who is interested in mechanics or physics, the Leonardo da Vinci is a highlight in Venice. There are few originals from the ingenious inventor, but the replicas are really ingenious. The museum is ingenious for children from school age as well as for adults. We spent 2 hours enjoying the objects in the exhibition.

There is a small cinema in the first floor. There is a good movie about the life of Da Vinci. The probably most famous polymath in history lived from 1452 to 1519.

Directions Da Vinci Museum Venice

The museum is right in the middle of Venice. The description of the way here would be too complicated. You need a map on your cell phone or a city map. As I said before, the Frari Church and the Scuala San Rocco are other places of interest nearby.

From Venice Santa Lucia central station it is only about 20 minutes walk. From the water bus station in the Canal Grande San Toma it is only about 10 minutes walk. From the Rialto Bridge it is about a 20-minute walk, as from the train station, and about 30 minutes from St. Mark's Square.

Our tip: Buy tickets for waterbuses beforehand

It is not always easy to buy tickets abroad. You don't know where to buy tickets, foreign ticket machines are difficult to use, there are language problems, queues, etc.

The 1, 2 or 3 day valid tickets for the waterbuses (ferries) in Venice are needed by almost every tourist. These tickets can now be bought on this english website.

The tickets for the bus from Venice airport to the city are available on this page in English language.
