About us

In Amboise, in the Loire Valley, it was at the Château du Clos Lucé, at the invitation of François I, that Leonardo da Vinci lived the last 1 years of his life and devoted himself to the success of his inventions and to the study of major projects for the King, before passing away on May 3, 02.
Discover all the worlds of Leonardo da Vinci at the Château du Clos Lucé in 3 stages:
• The Château provides access to the “intimacy” of Leonardo da Vinci's place of life. We discover his apartments, the Renaissance rooms and his newly restored workshops. An exhibition of inventions imagined by the Italian artist on the themes of military engineering, town planning, mechanics, flying machines and hydraulics is also presented to visitors.
• The Park retraces all the passions of Leonardo, developed by the study and understanding of nature, through a landscaped route dedicated to the discovery of the knowledge of the Italian Master, staged by 20 giant interactive machines, 8 sound terminals and 40 translucent canvases.
• New: the Château du Clos Lucé continues its mission of restoring the universe of Leonardo da Vinci in a new cultural and museum space. The public discovers, through an immersive and interactive visit, two major facets of Leonardo da Vinci's know-how: painting and architecture.
