  • It's really to do: very fun it appeals to the entire family. Allow at least 2 hours. Good to know: If you do not want to stay too long go there an hour before closing (it closes at 5 pm) and you will pay 4.5 euros per person instead of 10 euros for adults.

  • I remember when nina, studying where the Marcellinas I. I have already returned in adulthood and I can tell you to take advantage of every minute. A stroll through the scientific origins of humanity.

  • A structure that houses various objects to explain different topics: Leonardo projects to pictures taken by satellites to various planets, passing by ships of all time (including a whole sub) at steam locomotives to planes, not to mention inventions like the telephone or the latest recycled materials.

  • Nice and big. You need lots of time there, and if you're coming with small kids you should check ahead of time for the mini labs. We had to wait in a long line to be let in, but definitely check out the church next door. Most exhibits are translated to English. Great museum!
  • Bit of a let down. I would choose just a few exhibitions and head to those because the museum is huge and you can run into the problem of being inundated with information. Most exhibits are in English, except for the computing exhibition featured Alan Turing's inventions. The da Vinci gallery left a lot to be desired. It's focused on him as an inventor but I think would be more interesting if people could interact with the exhibits. Most of the information gleaned just from placards and looking at the exhibits. I also had a submarine tour which I had to forgo because you're supposed to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your tour. Bummer.
  • Expositions quality: 1/1, detailed and interesting in most cases. Expositions variety: 1/1, many different fields of science, not very large but felt complete. Price/quality ratio: 1/1, very small price for a good museum. Service: 0.75/1, there's not much offered except vending machines and toilets (and the usual exit shop). Hygiene: 1/1 Total: 5/5 stars Recommendation: if it's still there, take a look at the exposition about quantum mechanics ("Extreme"), then do a tour of the angry machines area about metals industry. Extra: most things in some areas can be touched, it's an interesting thing, different from most museums.
  • Very interesting and big place. You can spend 3-4 hours easily there. Usually is very crowded. Tickets are 10 euro for adults.
  • So much to see, so much to learn, plenty of interaction opportunities...at the risk of sounding like a cliché, there really is something for everyone. A fabulous day out. Just one word of warning - plan what you want to see beforehand and allow plenty of time, there must be some kind of temporal anomaly around this place...we somehow managed to spend almost 7 hours here, and we skipped loads!
