This is a wonderful site. My six-year old is constantly asking to play again. Someone has changed history and the player of the game needs to travel back in time to the Renaissance and explore Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop in search of clues. Children can examine Leonardo’s art and inventions and discover the spirit of the Renaissance while solving this interactive mystery. I was so surprised that my daughter was able to play this game by herself after we had played together a few times and that she remembered which inventions were Leonardo’s

An interesting site that describes several models from Leonardo sketches hosted by the museum. A section called “Virtual Leonardo” allows users to navigate inside the museum meeting other virtual visitors.
