Museo Nazionale Della Scienza E Della Tecnologia Leonardo Da Vinci - Review

Italy's largest Science and Technology Museum is housed inside to the ancient monastery of San Vittore al Corpo. There used to be a fourth-century basilica and Mausoleum here for emperors Gratian and Valentinian III. The building you see today was built in the 16th century, and has functioned as a military hospital and a barracks.

The museum's exhibits are divided into seven major themes - materials, transport, energy, communication, Leonardo da Vinci, Art & Science, New Frontiers, and Science for Kids. These cover exhibits such as metal extraction, chemical processing, historical vessels, astronomical and telecommunications instruments, precious stones and minerals, clock making, machines based on Da Vinci's drawings, and musical instruments.

One of the most beloved exhibits is that of the Toti submarine S-506, built for WWII by Italians.

Museo Nazionale Della Scienza E Della Tecnologia Leonardo Da Vinci, Milan Reviews

  • Visited with a friend who was able to explain all the exhibits by listening to the guide and translating for me. Spent about an hour (or was it 2?) and the time flew. Even if you don't have someone to translate for you, they have an English version of the guide for visitors. This museum is part of a tour package where you visit 6 sites in Alba for about 6€ per site (if I recall correctly) so it's a great deal for tourists or residents. The museum itself is small enough to manage all the exhibits in about an hour or two depending on how long you want to stay in each exhibit- the calibre of the exhibits is top notch although they are still working on some of the labelling as far as I can tell, and they also add to the displays over time so there will probably be something/s new each time you visit...if you make it an annual event.

  • Excellent Museum. If you are looking for an alternative to shopping/culture/sport/ancient history/etc.. in Milan, then this is a great choice. The museum entrance is slightly tricky to locate, so check a map before you set off. Once inside, the main building holds many interesting rooms. It's like a standard museum, with glass clases and exhibits. Once you work your way through to the outside, you're met with the larger trains, submarines, ships, and planes, in the buildings and shed. The variety and descriptions (Italian AND English) are enough to keep adults and children entertained and informed. Don't miss the ruins of the city wall passing through the courtyard of the main building!

  • Hands down the best science and technology museum anywhere. The artifacts and exhibits are excellent. You could easily spend several days here. That said, there are lots of exhibits with lots of text, which may not interest younger children. Food options are also limited to the God Save The Food food truck (very good) and vending machines, so pack a lunch if you want more options and eat in the cafe space provided inside or in the courtyard.

  • This museum was a highlight of our trip to Milan. Great exhibits and most (if not everything) is fully translated to English. We enjoyed seeking out the items highlighted in the maps and brochures provided at the front desk. The structure of the building doesn’t lend itself to a natural flow through the museum, so be sure to grab a map.

  • Impressive and diverse exhibition about science and industry. It was a well spent time as most of the exhibits are explained in an informative way along with some great visual effects. The only disappointment is regarding Leonardo da Vinci where some models based on his inventions are displayed and not so well explained.
