This museum is located very close to a park & an art museum. So we were able to visit all three places on the same day. I would definitely recommend visiting this museum. Entry to this museum is covered by the Tourist Museum card.

The oldest museum in Milan was established in 1838 and includes sections for Botany, Entomology, Paleontology, Mineralogy and Zoology (Invertebrate and Vertebrate). From the 1893, the museum is located in a purposely built building designed in Neo-Romanesque style (with some Gothic elements). The highlight of...More

Well worth a visit and has some really nice exhibits. The only proviso is only a small proportion have an English explanation. We were ok despite this but I can imagine others would get frustrated.

When you traveling with kids forget long shopping and restaurant slalom. To make them happy I'd recommend to visit this museum. 2 hours of excitement and big WoW for them. You will be not disappointed. PS. Not so many visitors, what makes sightseeing more relaxed.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
