The Da Vinci exhibit - it was hard to believe that was all there was. I went with kids and found the rest of the museum more interesting and fun.

Ok, I have been to a lot of natural history museums around the world and am probably spoiled... This museum would be good for kids, with simple interactive exhibits.

I did not visit the Da Vinci exhibition. The natural history section is excellent! I found the section on a crash into the earth by a large asteroid to be compelling and almost scary! Everything is well presented for kids and for the informed visitor.

This exhibit was a little underwhelming but the entire museum as a whole always delivers. If you're interested in the life of Da Vinci or the Mona Lisa, this can and will settle many of those curiosities.

Some hotels have shuttles to and from the airport, but none go to the Museum that I know of. There are bus stops near the museum.
