  • This is an old-school Museum with displays and billboards, but without modern multimedia. This, however, does not take away charm, perhaps is one of those rare cases in which the importance of the exhibition gains. On the upper floors there are a whole range of animals of all kinds with meticulous description of their habitat. On the ground floor there is a jump in prehistory (the kids go crazy for literally dinosaurs and primitive men); the information is many but exposed easily and understandable to all.

  • Visit interesting and beautiful, in a structure that does not hide its age and will also be the charm of vintage unintentionally making appreciate the visit, though some multimedia (here is absolutely off limits) wouldn't hurt to rejuvenate and make more attractive. But before doing this it would be good to treat the bathrooms which are in pitiful conditions of hygiene. Pucclici baths of a roadside diner on August 15 are cleaner! A must the huge dinosaur skeletons and numerous stuffed animals placed in their natural habitat with scenes, old style, but on the impact.

  • Interesting Museum for children and adults. Here are the stuffed animals from around the world. Very colorful Exposition, animals are depicted in action in the wild. Son 4 years, he really liked it.

  • 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.
