  • The bottom collects the most modern, with a beautiful display on the geology and fossils. The top is a dated exhibition of stuffed animals. Ticket 5 €, view on earthquakes (more timely than ever ...) not included. The ticket allows you to go out for lunch and come back, there are dining inside. Easy to get to with M1 Palestro right outside the front door. Friendly staff. A visit can last up to 5 hours, 3 for bottom and 2 for the top.

  • For those interested in natural sciences or for those who want to see the world, especially animal, in a couple of hours, you see. In some rooms a bit "dated" alternate many dioramas and evocative environments with full-sized animals, with detailed explanations. Ideal for children (not too small that might impress each) as well as for adults curious about or to refresh their knowledge. Also interesting is the part that describes the evolution of man through time. To update some services.

  • I took the 6-year-old child. During the variety exhibited until the dinosaurs from insects. Unlike in Japan, was a funny way. Location and showcased the live insects in forests and grasslands, and adults. I think Dinosaur Museum in Ueno, Japan is large scale, children enjoyed. Because there aren't many tourists can enjoy with families of Italy. I think this place can take half a day to go out and play and in a large park.

  • 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.
