  • Both young and adults have much information in the head. Unfortunately, many are often forgotten. Go to this museum helps you remember so many exciting things without getting tired. The Museum is well laid out. A pleasant and useful pastime.

  • recently I went to visit him with my son, and I'm not talking about a child but a 20 years old boy, it was great, very interesting also for families with children of school age

  • I've been going from the age of 6 years (I'm 47 ...), so I'm pretty well versed on the glories and failures of this museum. I would start with some adjective: Nice, interesting, some fall style along the way. In my eyes it is the place of imagination and discovery, my childhood was populated by Anteaters fighting Jaguars and whales. Behind this museum there is an army of volunteers and outstanding naturalists who are fighting to make it even better. Latest dioramas are wonderful, is there a mangy beast I remember since 1975 ... could put them in stock, or give it a polished/patched. It's still a place to visit and to make visiting children, arouses passion for nature and highlights our role in it such as primates-bewildered.

  • I was there with my 4 year old son. The main attraction of the museum is the T-rex skeleton which is actually impressive although not valorized enough. Other dinosaurs are present. Insufficient explanations, insufficient space for the visitors. Several rooms feature only posters.. Bookshop very small, was not even open when we visited. Honestly a city like Milan would deserve much better.
  • Not so big and not comparable to others natural history museums but it has complete collection and it's perfect for children.
  • Very detailed info about biological spieces. Loved it.
  • Great place for an hour visit The national geographic exhibition is wonderful Totally worth the time
  • A decent museum of Natural history. I went there while waiting for the planetarium next door to open - worth a look.
