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.

We were skeptical at first and were contemplating skipping this visit due to the entrance fee (€10), but my wife suggested since we were there, we may as well go inside, and we are both so glad we did. The museum is dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci and has numerous life size replicas or originals of cars, machines, planes, helicopters,... More

This is a well-organized museum with a great number of unique exhibits where one can learn a lot for 10 Euro only. I was really impressed by the collection of models of Leonardo's machines that were reconstructed from his drawings. The transport section of the museum with its dozens of replicas and originals of old planes, locomotives, and ships was... More

Great museum. The English text is the smallest, so bring glasses. I think the only thing that would make it better is if the models can be functioned, such as the pulleys or levers.

We had an hour to visit it. Not enough, you need like a day or so. Indoor and outdoor spaces. Vaste. All the science revisted, from the first pc to the first trip to the moon. Loved the sea and sky and the steam locomotives part. Lovely temporary exhibition: transformers art. A must for Milan!

Starting from the second level, as suggested by the desk, we found very interesting and old historical object but in a very bad exhitor with very poor lights or burned ones. There is no interactions at all or audio guide, or QR Code extensions ( in a science and techno museum I surely expect this kind of technology). Beside this,... More

It was a nice and big museum, with a lot of different opportunities. They are in lack of cafe or similar, where you could buy some food. In the newest building, a big group of children were gathered to play, in the buttom floor. Because of bad acoustics, it was VERY noisy. A shame because it shortened our visit in... More

This museum is in a former monastery, but the museum spaces are very modern. There are several buildings, including one which houses full-size planes from the early days of aviation, one with steam locomotives and trams, and one with exhibitions on early computers, early radio and telegraphy, the designs of Leonardo da Vinci, and many other topics. When I visited... More

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.
