Born in 1953, the Museum is one of the largest science and technology museums in Europe.

Nestled in the cloisters of a Renaissance monastery, it covers about 50,000 square meters.

At the Museum you can discover exhibits and interactive workshops on energy, materials, communication, transport, energy and particle physics.

Visit the most important collection in the world of historical models based on Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings.

Discover extraordinary objects such as steam trains, the catamaran AC72 Luna Rossa, the brigantine schooner Ebe, and the deck of the Conte Biancamano transatlantic.

Come aboard the Enrico Toti submarine to experience how sailors used to live.

Explore the new Space area displaying the only Moon fragment visible in Italy.

Keep an eye on temporary shows and don’t miss the new exhibitions “#FoodPeople. The exhibition for people eager for innovation” and “Extreme. Searching for particles”.

On weekends and public holidays enjoy a full program of activities in interactive workshops, initiatives in the Tinkering Zone and in the Maker Space, guided tours and special events included in the admission ticket.

I thought it was worthwhile since I'm interested in science and technology. I had sympathy for the little kids who were bored out of their minds being dragged around by their parents. Displays are nicely done and grouped appropriately.

Nice place to spend full day with your family. You need more than 4 hours to visit. You need reservation to visit inside the submarine. Small gift shop.

I came here to see exhibition about Leonardo DaVinci exhibition, but found out that there was far more to see. When visiting this museum you will spend here more than 3 hours for sure. It is impossible to go through it in less time

I went there to see the exhibition about Leonardo. I was surprised to discover that this museum has much more to offer. The exhibition about Leonardo was very interesting and it deserves to be enlarged. Replicas of Leonardo's inventions with descriptions were brilliant. I also enjoyed exhibitions about time measurement, ideal city, flight and many more. I recommend to plan... More

Coming out of the metro we had no idea where it was. If there were signs we missed them. Followed the crowd and eventually found it. Saw the exhibits that I wanted to see, which were thankfully described multi lingually, but go off the beaten track and the language becomes an issue if you are not an Italian speaker. Would...

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
