One of Florence's newest museums is dedicated to the Renaissance genius, offering some 40 working wooden models of his inventions that you can operate, a room of copies of his paintings, and a section dedicated to his anatomical studies. A perfect place to bring the kids when they can't stand to go in another church and the old gelato bribes are wearing thin.
