Natural History Museum of Milan ( Civico Museo di Storia Naturale), Milan, Italy
Corso Venezia 55, Milan, Italy 20121| Map |
With more than 5,000 square meters of exhibit space -- packed with every sort of animal, vegetable and mineral imaginable -- Milan’s Museum of Natural History (Civico Museo di Storia Naturale) is easily one of the city’s top attractions. Divided into six sections and 23 showrooms, the Museum of Natural History offers an impressive look at nature and humanity’s interaction with the natural world. Kids and parents alike marvel at the top quality paleontology exhibits. One hall in particular is devoted entirely to prehistoric beasts including a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Besanosaurus and even a large Pliosaurus which hangs suspended above awestruck visitors. The museum’s birds, bugs and intricate anaconda and Amazon Rain Forest dioramas are also a big draw. Though the collection is stellar (some even say it’s the finest in all of Italy), it’s also fairly compact. Visitors can easily see the highlights in an afternoon, leaving time to enjoy the lovely surrounding Porta Venezia Public Gardens.
