Well worth a visit and has some really nice exhibits. The only proviso is only a small proportion have an English explanation. We were ok despite this but I can imagine others would get frustrated.

When you traveling with kids forget long shopping and restaurant slalom. To make them happy I'd recommend to visit this museum. 2 hours of excitement and big WoW for them. You will be not disappointed. PS. Not so many visitors, what makes sightseeing more relaxed.

Situated inside a park. Entrance fee for foreigner is 5 euro. Two floor exhibitions. Unfortunately most of the specimen and exhibits are in Italian. But I still enjoy it. Hopefully they can add more English description in the future.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
