Went to see the Da Vinci expo. It was amazing. The audio guide (free) gives you nice back ground info on the pieces. Definately worth going It is only until early Jan 2019 and you do need to get tickets in advance online.

A museum worth visiting. Ordered our online tickets for easy access. The Da Vinci exhibition was interesting and worth a visit. Always like ambiance of this old museum with its fossels. The museum staff were helpful.
