You can spot a bad museum when they've got it filled with computerised tat and this is no different. A museum is usually something that has historical relevance and/or value with an educational description of what it is... but not this place! If you choose to go here you'll be delighted by patches of astro turf grass, gym weights, steering... More

Went here to see the de Vincis exhibition on a wet Sunday. What we hadnt bargained for was that there were two additional exhibition halls outside of the main museum building. The first contained full size original steam trains, trams etc which you could get inside and the second contained all things maritime including a full size tall ship and... More

The place is full of historic inventions o Da Vinci and many of old items from the modern era. The submarine requires prior booking for the inside tour, make sure to book it upon arrival to hotel as they run out of availability quickly. The museum is complicated in design so be careful when you walk to ensure that you... More

Amazing display of the developing science during the time of Da Vinci (the museum is not just Da Vinci exhibits) For me, I was keen on seeing and learning about the early ages of science and discovery - the museum has a lot of material that answered a lot of my questions. Well worth the money!

There is so much to see here. Allow a full day. We spent a day there and could have spent more time. Highlights for me were the trains, the Luna Rosa America's Cup yacht (spoiler alert - it's huge and slightly scary) and the particle physics section. But there's something for everyone really. Go there!

We chose to experience Leonardo da Vinci with our children. We found more than what we expected. Submarine was there at the garden. We found a train station inside from 60's. We found a space shuttle

We had a four hour visit to the Leonardo da Vinci Museum for Science and Technology. The centrepiece of the museum displays is an exhibition where Leonardo’s drawings have been transformed into conceptual and working models. The term “genius” is widely, and often inaccurately applied, in the modern era, but it is one that aptly portrays da Vinci’s work. The... More

Maybe lacking in information at times, but there is a really wide variety of exhibits, including a submarine and other impressive marine craft. I loved the exhibit about Primo Levi.

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood 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.
