For dino lovers like me, it's great. I finally got the chance to see real life-sized skeletons! Too bad the information was in Italian (most of it). The rooms are dark and you need a really good camera to make fotos. But I belive the kids will love to explore this place. With all those animals I also felt like... More

Fantastic value for only 5 euros entrance fee. There are hundreds of exhibits to look at and it's a great place to spend an hour or so whilst in Milan. Worth it for the dinosaur exhibit alone! It's also located in a park which looked like a nice place to walk around but unfortunately we didn't have the time. It... More

It's a nice natural history museum - of course we cannot compare it with the one in Berlin or New York; but if you're searching for an alternative way to spend the day , this museum can be an option.

If you like to see the ins and outs of the animal kingdom with some weird and wonderful creatures this is for you although it was a little disappointing not to have any description in english but it was still nice to look around.

Excellent museum. One of the largest in its kind in Europe. Contains both extinct and living creatures. Everything from large scale replicas of parasites to dinosaurs.

I recently visited this museum, I expected more from the natural history museum in Milan. There was a bit too much going on and all over thr place. However I have to give it to them as their second floor is absolutely beautiful. The exhibit is so well made, everything looks very life like. I do recommend going but don't... More

We decided to visit the Milan Natural History Museum as it was a wet morning and we did not want to walk around in the rain. What a brilliant place. The ground floor is home to a vast range of bugs, creepy crawlies , butterflies and moths. It is very well laid out, but there is very little English translation... More

We thought we would have a quick look here en route to an attraction which had a later opening time. We could have stayed all day. The downside for me is that most of the text was in Italian but that did not really detract for a relatively short visit. There are huge displays of insects and other invertibrates and... More

Staying in Brera

Neighborhood Profile
Brera
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
