Ample collection, ranging from inventions by Da Vinci to replica of the Large Hadron Collider. Interactive, suited for a visit with children.

It worth to visit, but technology museums are mostly exciting. I can not compare this one to other ones. But in total, I liked it.

There was incredible things in it. The map its useless and its not very good organised you easy to get lost. There is a real submarine and you can walk in it but you must book it a few days earlier.

Entrance and exit are in different places. We arrived at the exit by mistake ! So much to see in lovely buildings. Central courtyard and balcony are very pretty. Some exhibits a little tired. Booked submarine in advance, interesting tour. Da Vinci models were very good. Spent about 3 hours looking round.

We were overwhelmed by the amount of exhibits in this multi building museum. There is a main building with the Leonardo deign replicas and other technology including impressive auto designs. There are other large buildings devoted to rail transport, air transport and water transport. There are many interactive displays. Wear comfortable shoes and bring your camera.

The museum is spacious and full of interesting things. I marvelled at the size of some exhibits. We spent a very enjoyable hour there and you could send longer if you are motivated (my family seem to have short attention span). It is hard to find your way around and where ever you are it's interesting!

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
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 supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
