Instead of the strange exhibition on Archimede and Leonardo (strange because you cannot compare a scientist as Achimede who defined physics laws and machines - several centuries before Galileo - with a dreamer like Leonardo who was not scientist and unable to define physics laws), you should go and visit the Tecnoparco which is very closed to the archeological park...

We visited late in the season, late in the day and had the luxury of a guide all to ourselves. Discovered all kinds of mechanisms that were new to us, loved being able to get up close to the exhibits and learned a great deal, thanks to our guide's pretty good English and our pretty ropey Italian. Low-key, charming and... More

This is a good idea poorly executed and badly maintained. The idea of life size or scale working models of Archimedes civil engineering and war machines is a good one in the city of his birth. But many of the models are poorly constructed and have deteriorated badly in the outdoor environment. Repairs to the exhibits are very shoddy and... More

6 euros entry. This well advertised park is run down and some of the exhibits were non functioning or broken. It takes no more than 15 minutes to walk around with the information on the iPad provided difficult to hear and losing a lot in translation. It could be so much better as it is an interesting idea. The Leonardo... More

Great place but no written explanations in any language, no pamphlet, and tours only provided for Italians - English version of electronic guide v obscure and left us none the wiser rendering us completely bemused by what we were seeing and trying to work out how to use the various fascinating models - almost crushed by reproduction pulleys and ballistas.......

Even though there are a lot of good reviews of the place her on TripAdvisor, the place is not worth a visit. My dad and i went there but was disappointed. The machine were in a bad state, there were no sigs telling you about it and it was so small. Not worth the 6€ they charge.

Unless you are a super geek this is not really going to float your boat. It's small and relevant but you do need to go out of your way to see it and I can't say you'll spend your time wisely if you do. You're better off going to see a puppet show.
