I don't know if it's a permanent exhibit, but the museum had a wonderful exhibit of da Vinci's drawings AND scale models when I visited. If you're a da Vinci fan, this is a must see.

Overwhelming place, a lot to see. Very diversificate topics. Be prepared to spend more then 3 hours, if you really enjoy to take your time a full afternoon is not too much. Loved it. Will return.

Milano's driving force is the merging of art, science, design and engineering, superlatively embodied by Leonardo Da Vinci.

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
