We had an hour to visit it. Not enough, you need like a day or so. Indoor and outdoor spaces. Vaste. All the science revisted, from the first pc to the first trip to the moon. Loved the sea and sky and the steam locomotives part. Lovely temporary exhibition: transformers art. A must for Milan!

Starting from the second level, as suggested by the desk, we found very interesting and old historical object but in a very bad exhitor with very poor lights or burned ones. There is no interactions at all or audio guide, or QR Code extensions ( in a science and techno museum I surely expect this kind of technology). Beside this,... More

It was a nice and big museum, with a lot of different opportunities. They are in lack of cafe or similar, where you could buy some food. In the newest building, a big group of children were gathered to play, in the buttom floor. Because of bad acoustics, it was VERY noisy. A shame because it shortened our visit in... More

This museum is in a former monastery, but the museum spaces are very modern. There are several buildings, including one which houses full-size planes from the early days of aviation, one with steam locomotives and trams, and one with exhibitions on early computers, early radio and telegraphy, the designs of Leonardo da Vinci, and many other topics. When I visited... More

The entire museum will take awhile to proceed through. Start at the top so you dont miss exhibits concerning DaVinci! The rest of the museum is interesting, but the top floor gives so much insight into the intellect and contributions of the great Leonardo. In my opinion, he is the main reason to see Milan.

Just around the corner from the Duomo, well with a visit, allowing a few hours. Visited in the the morning, quiet. Brilliant insight into Leonardo, has art but not the main stay of this museum.

First piece of advice, do NOT visit on a Sunday! The queues to get in were around the courtyard, down the street and around the corner, so be prepared to wait patiently. We visited here as we could not get tickets to go to the Leonardo exhibition of models etc currenly in Milan, however this museum has an excellent selection... More

In a predominantly cultural city, I found this museum fascinating. I particularly enjoyed the guided tour of the submarine (be aware though that it is only conducted in Italian).

Great museum with lot of interesting permanent and temporary expositions. They even have a submarine in which you can go inside for an extra 10 euro. Well worth to visit!

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.
