Milan Natural History Museum6
Why locals love it
The Natural History Museum is one of the oldest public cultural institutions in Milan. It was officially opened in 1844 on the site of an old convent. The collections were moved to the Museum’s current location in the Porta Venezia public gardens at the beginning of the 19th century.
Why you should visit it
This museum regularly hosts exhibitions and other events of great international importance. Its appeal, however, is linked to its permanent palaeontology, mineralogy, zoology, botany and entomology exhibitions.
Free admission for visitors under 18 or over 65 every Tuesday from 2 pm, and on the first Sunday of every month.
