Via San Vittore, 21, 20123 Milano MI, Italy
Really loved my time here. The displays were extremely interesting and educative. I can imagine if you have children that it’s interactive enough to keep them busy. The topics of the d exhibitions were different than other science museums i have been too. I especially enjoyed the particle physics exhibition and modern food. You can easily spend 8 hours here and not get bored! If you want to go inside the submarine you need to book it before, sadly we were not aware of that. Also the entrance is a bit hard to find
This museum is really great, it is extremely "provided" and well configured. There are several buildings and themes on each floor and in each section. For those who speak fluent Italian, the ticket price includes an activity to choose from in specific time slots (some of which are for children). Top quality/price ratio, plan to spend at least half a day there if you really want to see everything while taking the time.
This has to be the biggest, best and most diverse science museum I have been to. Tickets were 7.50 for students and 10 for adults, well worth the price. Coming from an engineering background myself, there was loads of information and data on each exhibit that you are looking at. There's a range of areas such as food, space, recycling, mining, materials and aircraft. Loads of interesting artifacts that you can play with. For the sheer size of this place, there is enough things to easily spend 3/4 + hours here. My highlight of Milan is this place easily. Downsides - quite hard to find, not many sign posts to show you the way from the local train station and also the toilets (men's) were not in good shape.
The museum is HUGE, easy to find, and 7.5 Euros for teachers and students (they'll ask to see school ID) and 10 for gen. admission. It was newly renovated in 2016 and it is one SHARP looking museum! Lot's of interactive exhibits for kids, everything clearly labeled in Italian and English with extremely interesting facts and trivia. Their Food Science section is extensive; the best I've ever seen outside a culinary college. Give yourself at least 2-3 hours to see everything at a leisurely pace.
If you are interested in Technology and Science and are planning to visit this museum then make sure to plan in quite some time. It is huge! Especially the first building which contains three floors is filled with information. We took a good 2-3 hours to walk through the whole place. Adult tickets (older than 25) will run you 10 euro's. Given it is a technoloy museum you would expect them to use this to their advantage and build more interactive areas but this was however not the case and as such I will have to give them 4 stars instead of 5.
