This museum is housed in Palazzina Uzielli and in the Conti Guidi Castle. It conserves one of the most complete collections of reproductions of the models designed by Leonardo. On the first floor of Palazzina Uzielli, at the beginning of the exhibition, there are two important sections: the first on construction site machines and the second on textile technology. The models are commented in images, documents and virtual functional reconstructions. Teaching activities are planned both for school groups and scholars. The Conti Guidi Castle houses more than 6 models of machines invented by Leonardo, each accompanied by copies of drawings and notes by the artist. A large panel, located on the ground floor of the castle, illustrates the life of Leonardo and the most representative phases of his work, in the context of contemporary historical events. Especially interesting are the models of military, scientific and flying machines. Among the most curious models, the ?automobile?, a real prototype for future (and current) applications, the beating wing and the 1:2 functioning scale model of the crane used for building the cusp of the cupola of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. In the projection room, visitors can view films on documents of Leonardo: artist, scholar and engineer.

In 1993 a one-of-a-kind exposition was inaugurated: The Ideal Museum of Leonardo da Vinci. The location of the Museum, in the old gallery of the castle and adjoining rooms is, in itself, particularly thought-evoking. It is a ?research work site?, the expression of the creativity and the enhancement of the territory.
