  • It's a different way to spend a day observing glimpses of nature. The animals, placed in the environment that hosted them while they were alive, we have pictures of places and scenes. Great Museum collection, rich in "pieces" that children love.

  • It is a marvel. I have visited several museums of this type, and the Milan has seemed very complete, very educational and enjoyable. It is worth losing a couple of hours to see it, especially if you're with children

  • The exhibition is very interesting for children and adolescents, however, is the space that the descriptions seem to have 20 years, should renovate the space and make it much more again. But overall the part devoted to dinosaurs and mammals is really interesting.

  • 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.
