The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

Don’t go there unless you are fluently in italian. No help from staff
And all Signs in italian. Very little to do, and totally based on schoolgroups, Very expensive for an educational speech suited for older children allthough “ sold” to 2-6 years. No activity. Rude waitress in the bistro, no stars from us.

We visited the MUBA with our son few times. A fantastic museum for children in an ancient and spectacular building. The installations are interesting and challenging.
The guides are very well prepared and the have a very nice attitude with the childrens.
We parents loved it. Theer is also a small shop with a wondefull selection of books and toys, for kids but for curious parents as well. Beside a small restaurant, with a small but exquisite menu.

Very rigid organization for what should be a child friendly - happy experience. Booked by accident the wrong exhibition to take my daughter as her friends were booked in another. Called immediately (the day before) to ask possibity to change where I was responded with a big NO. Very pity to be so unkind and rigid for something so “silly”.

Surly staff on reception. We travelled across milan to get here with our 5 year old to be told that we couldn't see the exhibition until 5pm. There was nothing on the website during the week to tell us this. So a disappointed child and nothing to do except the cafe. Museum only open for school groups. Not for tourists at all. Didn't feel welcome.

This is a super museum for kids, where everything is at their level and designed for them to touch, move, experiment with and enjoy! Well worth a visit!

This was recommended by a friend and with two young children it seemed like a child centred treat as they had patiently explored the city with us. Upon arrival we were informed that the museum's family activities that day started at 5pm. The majority of what is a small space was cordoned off with school groups using them. We were invited to use the remaining spaces which amounted to a large blackboard and magnetic wall with some tired shapes. The building itself is lovely but the cafeteria very pricey for Milan. 1 salad, 1 bagel, and 2 children's burgers with a bottle of water to share came to 40 Euro. I would suggest calling ahead to see what is happening as it is not the typical children's museum.

Interesting concept however unfortunately everything was in Italian only and my 4 year old son was extremely bored by the whole experience because of this. Could organise different groups for English/Italian so that all kids can enjoy.

I've discovered it by chance, but it looks like a great place to bring my children next time I am in Milan. Numerous activities even for the very little ones, a possibility to take part in family sessions or simply enjoy this creative space on one's own.

We recently visited the MUBA ( Museo dei Bambini di Milano ) and were a bit dissapointed ... we were expecting much more ... what we found was a strange furniture exhibition by Austrian designers scattered all over the place where the children were invited to go around and "discover" some strange furniture ... well, the idea is ok, but it was somewhat strange for the kids to go after some ultra-modern furniture ... at the end, they were invited to play with some raw materials on a frame to organize them and try to create some sort of art ... this was much better ... however, the overall experience is somewhat weak ... we'd have expected much more for a so-long announced new museum ... the gardens outside are dry and hot ... some watering would be urgent for the grass and the plants outside ... we do hope they improve ... Milan can certainly offer a much better kids museum, I'm sure ... let's hope for its improvement ... ( and by the way, the caffeteria is expensive and the menu is not really for kids and families ) ..... again, we do hope for its improvement !

To call it a Museum takes courage…

We had been aiming to visit Mu.Ba for several years... ever since my niece was little... but we never managed to go, as we really had to book well in advance... then I had two children... and here we are: finally here we are!!
I had tried to understand and I'm honest I didn't succeed (from the site and the reviews) if there was something besides the famous ReMida laboratory (or the other laboratories proposed, but you pay for each laboratory..).. I wasn't able to understand it and here's the reason: besides the laboratory there is practically almost nothing 😅 two small rooms with activities thrown in there... 😅
The heart therefore is the path. Okay, we sit waiting to enter.
We enter and we are presented with a large room with dozens and dozens of transparent Ikea boxes full of materials on the shelves... but we don't touch them, we only play with those that are on the floor. Well, let's begin. The game is free, there are 3 boys who supervise, they are kind, cute and smiling and my children loved them and had fun. But there is no structured laboratory. In fact, it's free play with recycled materials (a small selection of all those on the shelves). It lasts 1 hour and then settles down.
What makes the judgment go from 'nice activity' to 'not worth it' is the price.
€36.50. €11 per child and €8.50 per adult.
But are we serious?
And the absurdity is that to enter the other room (color) you would practically have to pay the same amount?! But are we serious?!
😅😅😅😅
I can't believe how successful this place is, I had heard so much about it. They also go there on trips with schools... I suppose that in that case the workshops offered are different, better studied... I don't know... I found it really poor. The children certainly had fun but if you think about the amount spent for 1 hour of play, for me it's not worth it. Nothing that you can't easily do at home with discarded materials 😅
For me the success of this museum really remains a big mystery... and in my opinion it also takes courage to call it a museum.
