It is a good museum with old drawings and books. We were passing by and decided to take a look at th work of Leonardo da Vinci. So if you are intersted in works of Renaissance's painters, visit the library

I love this library, just for wandering through and looking through the exhibits and all the old book covers. It's very beautiful and historic and doesn't have a fee to enter. There are sometimes exhibits held there as well. Worth a peek!
