Discover extraordinary objects such as steam trains, the catamaran AC72 Luna Rossa, the brigantine schooner Ebe, and the deck of the Conte Biancamano transatlantic. Come aboard the Enrico Toti submarine to experience how sailors used to live. Explore the new Space area displaying the only Moon fragment visible in Italy.

I went on the advise of my son back in Canada. I was a little sceptical as I'd prefer looking art than inventions and technology so I was extremely surprised how much i enjoyed it

The museum is quite big but very bad organized. You get lost through the super big buildings, you have to go back and forth on the same way to go to another building and nothing is marked. Moreover the exponats are described only in Italian...More

We've found some of the streets in Milan quite difficult to manoeuvre in a wheelchair, but getting to this place was well worth the hairy moments. This place properly kept the two kids (10 & 5) well and truly engaged for the best part of...More

Full disclosure, I went here as a compromise to my scientist husband, who was getting medieval church fatigue ( i am a professional academic medievalist). However, the building is an architectural gem with medieval cloisters. Best for me was the section on Leonardo DaVinci's drawings...More

The exhibit was large with a lot of interesting things to see. But a museum of this size really needs a cafeteria. The layout was also confusing, if you wanted to see everything, you had to backtrack a lot.

Such a surprise! A really good museum of science, one stop away from Cadorno, full of surprises with good space for our conference dinner. Enjoyed it a lot!

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
