  • I went to visit him with my boyfriend to spend an afternoon with a difference and we are disappointed because of the backwardness media level. Is more recommended for a visit with family and children.

  • It's always a nice afternoon, that spent at the Museum. My kids are having fun and find what you read in books of history, geography and science. Interesting reconstructions of environments, exciting dinosaur skeletons reconstructed life-size.

  • 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.
