Lots of interesting exhibitions, including a permanent one with models of Leonardo's machines. The CERN temporary exhibition was quite interesting too. Be ready to spend a couple hours to a day (we ended up staying for 5 hours before eventually leaving through the expo exhibition).

Got two kids 5 and 9. For them the duomo, St. Peter in Rome or St. Marco in Rome are the same. Well so this place with a very Italian touch, lots of good scientific subjects, and interactive material was pretty attractive for all ages. We found the slot of 3 hours to visit the museum tooo short. So be... More

The museum is a nice place to see his scientific works and drawings. Another side of da Vinci that most do not see. Most of the descriptions are in Italian so unless you can read/understand the language, rent the audio for the full experience. The museum also has some exhibits that visitors can touch and build. Sadly photos are not... More

We visited this museum during our a few-day stay in Milan. I was wondering of all machines and structures he designed. Perfect interactive panel, where you can construct his machines/structures and then simulate them. Lots of exhibits of his inventions. In one room you can construct his self-supporting bridge. All exhibits are not working. Sometimes it is difficult to imagine... More

We spent over 6 hours at the museum, and both parents and our 10-year-old found it to be fascinating. A huge variety of topics are covered, and explanations are very detailed in both English and Italian. The one major downside is that very few exhibits are interactive. There are a few fun games to play and learn from, but most... More

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man whose unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be... More

We brought my 15 year old son, 12 year old son and my 7 year old niece. We were here 3 hours and they didn't even know it! Lots of cool things to see and tinker with.

Amazing experience for a good price. We had to take min.4 small breaks to sit down a little between 2 exhibitions of thw museum. There is everything you can or cannot imagine :) a must seen place, but you need to save 5-6hrs for it.

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.
