Casa Di Leonardo is the small farmhouse located at 3 kms from the centre of the town. Leonardo’s house has various replicas of his outstanding work as all his original artefacts have already been moved to museums. Out of the various museums that Vinci houses, Leonardo Di Vinci ideal museum can actually be considered as an ideal museum representing the original works of the famous artist. Museum was formed in 1953, by various artiste and scholars. In addition to original artefacts, the museum also has reproductions of Leonardo’s famous artworks and the biographical events of his life.  There is another famous museum called Museo Leanardino that is holed up inside Guidi Castle. This museum consists of wide array of Leonardo’s workings such as his model inventions, machines, artworks etc. In addition, the museum also has some astounding audio and videos featuring the documentaries of the famous artiste.
