Great museum with a wide spectrum of exhibits from 400 years old watches to a moon rock. I only wish English signage was better to make it more educational.

A good museum with lots of Italian and European history on show. There is something there for every one including transport, music and interactive activities.

If you have an hour or it is very hop outside you probably find it interesting to visit Leonardo tech museum. From my childhood I heard something about Leonardo technical ideas but never could expect them in details. The exhibition gave me many very interesting examples.

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.
