This is very much like the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry down to the submarine, but so much more. We thought this was going to be a short visit to a small museum. We were very wrong. There are multiple buildings with multiple levels....More

The highlights for us were the models created from drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and the telecommunications hall. We were able to get in without a lineup. Do watch out for school tours. There is no café onsite (just some machines).

This museum is a great place for families to spend time learning about the contribution of Italians from Leonardo da Vinci to Marconi to science and technology. Excellent displays of replicas of Leonardo's inventions or proposals.

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.

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
