This museum has everything to keep you entertain for the whole day! Ranging from all brilliance innovations of Da Vinci, science, technology, astronomy, ships, planes, mining, and so on. The kids will have fun and adult as well. We brought our own food and have lunch on their garden. All exhibits have also English translation.

This was my favourite place in all of Milan. It is definitely a day trip (took me 1.5hours to do 1 / 6 floors). It's great for all ages (I'm 20 years old) and it covers topics like: recycling, energy, life-cycle of a product, metals, plastics, ceramics, iron forging, steel, food, television, radio, space, Earth, da Vinci's inventions, Italian innovation,...

The museum has a very diverse collection covering everything from cars, trains, ships, airplanes, space, food, basic chemistry, telecommunications, etc. I think they would do better to focus on a few topics, instead of trying to cover everything. Thankfully the signs were in both Italian and English. However, most of the exhibits are not interactive and frankly become boring after... More

This museum was a pleasent surprise! It is huge and there is something for everyone. Our kids (age 8 and 9) liked to see e.g. the Da Vincis models, the space exhibition and the boats and airplanes (in a separate building). There were a few interactive things they tried. We also went for the guided tour to the submarine, and... More

If you are in to science and technology and like a bit of everything this is the place for you. The museum is close to the underground. There is an pick-nick area so bring your own lunch.

There's a lot to see in this museum. The layout can be confusing, so it's best to just wander around. It is very specific to science and technology, as the name indicates. There is a large display of da Vinici's innovations I found the exhibit on the world expos to be interesting. The entire museum is very informative and there... More

In addition to a wing dedicated to modern reconstructions of some of the machines Leonardo da Vinci sketched, the museum has exhibits on space travel; history of computing, telecommunication, television, chemicals and manufacturing. It also has a huge rail shed with a number of trains and a naval wing with historic ships and a range of aircraft-not to mention a... More

When I think of my stay in Milan, this is the first thing that comes to my mind. Because it's was mindblowing for me! The museum is huge and it also has a backyard and additional buildings. I spent 5 hours in it, but it was totally worth it! If you are a fan of science, it should be on... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
