Not only design, fashion and derby of the “Madonnina”: Milan is a city of art and science, with hidden wonders that range from the Roman period to the Futurism. From the Cenacolo Vinciano to the Fondazione Prada, from the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnica to the exhibitions at Palazzo Reale, the cultural offer in town is nearly limitless.
Among exhibitions and galleries, among the many activities that the city offers, many are children-friendly. Because even an afternoon with the children at the museum can be an opportunity to have fun, maybe learning something new!
