The leonardo di Vinci exhibit action is worth a look but whether it's worth 10 euros I'm not sure. The rest I Of the museum is great if you are interested in that type of thing or if you have younger travellers with you

Have you been to a science museum before? This one is probably worse. One thing that made me angry is their history of computers. In their list of people who made contributions, they left out the major key players who happened to be women (eg...More

I've always been more attracted by museums about science than pure arts. Once again, I wasn't disappointed. This museum makes you wonder 'what would the world be without Da Vinci's ingenuity ?

The Leonardo Da Vinci section is very good and informative about the engineering work LDV did in his lifetime, one very clever man! You need to spend at least 3 hours here to see everything

I expected a lot more. I thought the models would be bigger and that they could be turned on, touched, moved. After all, these are not really models that Leonardo built with his own hands, he only designed them, so there is no reason that...More

I was surprised to see that this museum is mostly for kids and despite its name, the collection is poor and is mostly with replicas or models of the original. The price is high (10 euros) for its value.

The museum is built in an interactive way, involving the visitors, which I think is a big plus because all the information presented becomes easier to be remembered. Moreover, learning new stuff becomes fun this way and you don't get to be overwhelmed or bored...More

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
