Leonardo da Vinci Museum (Museo Leonardo da Vinci) Tours

Inside the Galleria Agostiniana, part of the must-see Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo in Rome, is the small Leonardo da Vinci Museum, dedicated entirely to the great inventor and artist. What started out as a temporary exhibition is now permanently housed in a church on the busy Piazza del Popolo. Larger museums dedicated to the life and work of Leonardo are in Milan, Florence, or even the artist’s hometown of Vinci, but the Museo Leonardo da Vinci in Rome is a great comprehensive look at his Renaissance works.

The museum’s collection features more than 60 inventions modeled after Leonardo’s machines. There are more than 120 pieces on display throughout the museum, including artistic studies of famous pieces like “The Last Supper” and “Vitruvian Man.” Some of the models are interactive, making this a good option for families traveling with children. 

The museum’s location in the city center, not far from the Spanish Steps, also makes it easy to include on a visit when passing through the area. Roma Pass holders are entitled to a reduced admission fee.

Practical Info

Before or after visiting the Leonardo da Vinci Museum, don’t miss a visit inside the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo itself, where you can see some stunning in situ Caravaggio paintings.
