Il Genio di Leonardo da Vinci

Museum in Habana Vieja

A permanent exposition in the San Francisco de Asís convent's Salón Blanco (use the separate entrance on the church’s south side behind the Coche Mambí) that has cleverly built mock-ups of many of Leonardo’s famous drawings (gliders, odometers, bikes, parachutes and tanks) – the antecedents to pretty much half the inventions in the modern world.

It’s beautifully laid out with explanations in six languages, including Russian.
