I saw the reviews and knew I had to check this museum out as science museums are always of interest. Seeing the da Vinci models alone is probably worth the visit alone. I thought 2.5 hours was enough for me to go around at a...More

This museum is not as impressive as other technical museums, but it is okay. The most exciting part of the museum is the old train station and the old trains, which are very beautiful and well preserved. The submarine is also worth seeing.

Navigli
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
