What people are saying about Milan

Huge museum had no idea theres that much to see read and learn. And for 10 Eur cant complain at all. Those who think this museum concentrates on Da Vinci only are wong. From food to aviation to communication, pollution of earth etc etc ... For anyones taste there is a topic. Great choice. Big recommendation. Take at least 1.5 hours if you actually wanna read and not just walk through ...

Lots of details about inventions including models & interactive exhibits. Last Supper digital restoration excellent. We opted to see this in lieu of the real thing so we had unlimited time to learn about it. Very short activity, we saw everything in under an hour

Very interesting visit, a lot of things to discover as well on Leonardo da Vinci (with models and his drawings in parallel) as in different scientific fields. You will be able to see a small fragment of the Moon, understand the operation of waves, radios ...

There’s more to this museum than just the works of Da Vinci. This museum is an ode to the technological and the engineering might of Milan. The transportation wing is especially interesting as there are actual-sized air, space and watercraft

This is a must have. A lot of inventions of Leonardo brought to life so that anyone can see.
