Mostra di Leonardo offers an engaging, kid-friendly introduction to the inventor and artist. Explore the museum’s collection of wooden models of dozens of da Vinci’s machines, as well as 3D holograms demonstrating the engineering behind his inventions and the techniques used to create his famous paintings. In the final hall, peer beneath the glass floor to see the tomb of Aulo Irzio, a Roman lieutenant killed in 43 BC during the Battle of Modena. Discovered in 1938, the tomb is submerged under the waters of the Euripus, the underground waterway that flows through Rome’s historic center and drains into the Tiber River.
In the heart of Rome, Mostra di Leonardo is an easy stop for travelers visiting the most popular sights in the Eternal City. Book your ticket in advance to skip the long entry line.
