More info

The Aquarium of Milan was built in 1906, for the first Universal Exposition (EXPO) held in town and is the only building of the event that was preserved until today. Besides the fact that its name begins with “A”, it definitely is the first of the 109 spots to be instagrammed in Milan, one for every year passed since then.

It is the third oldest aquarium in Europe and its façade is decorated with fish and water life representations, including a Neptune statue by Oreste Labò. In the aquarium’s library you can find one of Italy’s most prestigious collections of marine biology publications.

Open Tue-Sun 9:00 am – 7:.30 pm (last admission 7:00 pm); closed on Mon. Last admission is always free, otherwise tickets cost 5,00€
