The Natural History Museum is located in Parco Venezia. It is the oldest civic museum in Milan with its current building dating back to the late 1800s, a striking red stone building with hints of neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic styles. Inside you will find six display areas that cover everything from the history of mankind to the study of paleontology (with real dinosaur skeletons to view) and zoology. This museum is a wonderful way to spend a morning or an afternoon, even with a small child. It is full of colourful exhibits, showcasing animals from all over the world. This museum is especially fun for little ones who are just learning about animals (and older kids who love dinosaurs!). Open everyday 9am – 7.30pm except Monday.
