  • When I was little my dad bring me here every Sunday. Still every now and then going back. Is a museum worth a visit

  • is in the list of free museums for the initiative "Sunday at the Museum" and I'd say it's worth spending even just a couple of hours surrounded by pieces of our history, particularly if you're wanting to discover something new about the world, about fossils. Curiosity is the best thing to lug around!

  • An old fashion museum. Good with children but no activities or iterative attractions
  • People always complain about this place. I think it is great. Usually quiet, there's a lot of interesting artefacts and animals.
  • WOW! For me and my boy was the most interesting thing in Milan. I have never seen so much attention for details when exhibiting the natural habitat of the animals. Don't miss it!
  • Niente di che
  • Not so big and not comparable to others natural history museums but it has complete collection and it's perfect for children.
