Is a very big place, takes like forever to visit all. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I was not very impressed. Before you go to visit run a search on google and make sure is your kind of fun.

This is a (very) big museum composed of several buildings. The first building of the museum is not meant to be visited in a particular order. It is divided in three floors and hosts Leonardo machines made according to his designs, a telecommunication section where you can see all the technological advancements from the first radio to optic fiber and...

The museum is bigger than it looked. Reminded me of the Verkehrshaus in Lucerne. Science and transport under one roof. Lots of hands on science, sending radio messages, as well as video interactives. Highlight was the chemistry exhibition, it really explains what all the PET, Polystryrene etc we use comes from. Shame is that it doesn't show where it's going... More

Went here in May on a Sunday with 2 kids 12 & 14. Huge and interesting displays from the Leonardo models to real planes, ships, and even a submarine. A display on how things such as cleaning products, shaving and make up have changed over the decades, a robotics area, a display on communications ... the list goes on and... More

Queueing in at about mid day took some 25 minutes. Once in it was not so crowded anymore since the area is very big. But the big area and old premises create the problem that navigating around the exhibitions is a bit problematic, and you easily miss some parts or have to walk back and forth. There are a lot...

Very interesting to see Leonardo's mechanical drawings made into models. His many talents were astounding. We really enjoyed the rest of the museum too, lots of interest and proves that 'Every day is a school day'. The transport building beside the submarine is very good too with lots of models.

Had a lovely morning at the museum. So glad we decided to visit this museum. The exhibit on Leonardo's designs was amazing. The layout was good and the explanations/commentary (in both Italian and English) was very good. We spent just over 2 hours , and could have spent much longer. 14 year old son particularly enjoyed. The exhibits on the... More

I personally loves to visit museums, and this museum is one of the best. It includes a wide range of exhibits, some of them large in size and hard to find in other museums eg. A submarine, a number of fighter jets, a helicopter, steam trains, a range of engines. You can tell the museum has done a great job... More

Quite a great way to spend a rainy day. I took my son here when he was four, and he loved it. I returned when he was six, and he looked even more. There are dozens of interactive exhibits including ones that involve radio stations, musical instruments, television. The models of the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci are great way... More
