It wasn't what I expected but was still interesting

My son really wanted to go here and there is a line but this is with most tourist things. The line moves quick so don't be put off if it seems long when you walk up. It's not... read more

Needed somewhere to spend a few hours after doing all the 'obvious' sights of Milan. So glad I did - this museum was fantastic. After the low-key entrance (easy to find - out of the metro, first left, then left again - 300 metres on your left) this place sprawls all over the place - a great mix of displays... More

If you have the interest to first read a document, then take a look and go on for ever, this is the place. Ok, the document is in Italian AND English which is a plus. First it is easy to find the exit from the metro, but the entrance is another story. Once inside you will find a museum that... More

My son really wanted to go here and there is a line but this is with most tourist things. The line moves quick so don't be put off if it seems long when you walk up. It's not very expensive to go in and honestly it is so large that you will be there for a couple hours easy. If... More

Came here to spend a rainy afternoon before leaving Milan. On the map it doesn't look so big but actually it's a whole block. There were many school groups but the place is so big it didn't feel crowded. It's recommendable to look beforehand the most interesting items (for us it was the Enigma machine), because otherwise you're just exhausted... More

Finding the entrance was surprisingly challenging but it was worth the perseverance. Lots of the sections are similar to the Science Museum in London (e.g. section on space) but the Da Vinci exhibition makes the museum well worth a visit. Probably a real treat for children too, if the school class visiting at the same time as us are anything... More

Fantastic for all ages, great way to spend 2/3 hours, for 10 euros. Loved it. Not far from 'the last supper' church either.

Definitely worth the visit! Don't expect to spend a short time here, this place is huge and very interesting. Very easy to hook everyone out. The main permanent exhibition are Leonardo da vinci's science along with some other seasonal exhibition. On the time of my visit the exhibit was about time, clock, horology, computer and space travel!! (They got the... More

Planes Boats Trains clocks/watches musical instruments foundry equipment. Diagrams of Leonado da Vinci and replicas of what they would look like built. Anatomy drawings. The man was AMAZING. €10 per adult €7.50 concession. Well worth the money and your time. Stairs involved. Toilets in several locations. In basement are vending machines and tables and chairs.

Although it's a must-see place, it's not as rich and amusing as its peer in Speyer (Germany). Nevertheless, the best things to see are the Leonardo da Vinci gallery, the computers' room, the clocks' room
