For schools
To each class its own itinerary!

A simple guided tour of the museum is just one of the many educational itineraries devised for all types of school and all ages!

Primary school children can try to interpret Leonardo’s writing in order to reconstruct some of the machines he designed; younger secondary school children can experience many of Leonardo’s insights for themselves through hands-on workshops and finally, students in the higher secondary school classes can tackle more specific subjects connected with the Genius thanks to our special focus sessions.
