The Leonardo Da Vinci section is very good and informative about the engineering work LDV did in his lifetime, one very clever man! You need to spend at least 3 hours here to see everything

I expected a lot more. I thought the models would be bigger and that they could be turned on, touched, moved. After all, these are not really models that Leonardo built with his own hands, he only designed them, so there is no reason that...More

I was surprised to see that this museum is mostly for kids and despite its name, the collection is poor and is mostly with replicas or models of the original. The price is high (10 euros) for its value.

The museum is built in an interactive way, involving the visitors, which I think is a big plus because all the information presented becomes easier to be remembered. Moreover, learning new stuff becomes fun this way and you don't get to be overwhelmed or bored...More

This is a museum largely geared to kids. There is an exhibit in the history of computers. Our favorite exhibit were the models of Leonardo da Vinci many inventions.

I thought it was worthwhile since I'm interested in science and technology. I had sympathy for the little kids who were bored out of their minds being dragged around by their parents. Displays are nicely done and grouped appropriately.

Nice place to spend full day with your family. You need more than 4 hours to visit. You need reservation to visit inside the submarine. Small gift shop.

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns

I'll be in Milan for a day with my 8 year old son...just enough time to take in either this museum OR the Leonardo museum....Which of the two do you think would hold the interest of a typical 8 year old boy more? Does one have more of a 'wow' factor than the other? Thanks in advance :)

I think that he will enjoy the museum as there are a lot of artifacts that he can see and learn about. However, I suggest that you also book in advance the Leonardo DaVinci's last supper as you won't be able to buy tickets... More
