The museum is very nice and the exhibitions are interesting and well explained. I was a bit disappointed as I expected the interactive part to be more "tangible". Here it is mainly through computer screens, and less "through you hands", as you can find in...More

You could and would like to spend at least 5 hours there! I recomend visiting the U-boat, even if you do not understand Italian. Kids should not miss actions that take place in laboratories.

This place is just boring. They stocked up a lot of old fashioned, electrical equipment, added some small models of Leonardo da Vinci projects and that is all to say. Waste of time.

This museum is more like a museum of history of technology. It has many interactive places, it is ok if you go with your kid, he won’t get borred. You have to walk a lot, so prepare to stay for a few hours.

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
