In Parco Sempione, in a Liberty-style building not far from the Castello Sforzesco, is the Public Aquarium
; it has many different examples of marine and fresh water fish on display.
A short walk from the Brera complex, you'll find the Museo del Risorgimento
- the Renaissance Museum, a surprising collection of prints, designs, paintings, sculptures, arms and memorabilia spanning Italy's history, from the Napoleonic age to the Unification of Italy.
But if you're looking for something a bit more entertaining, how about the Museo Interattivo del Cinema
- the Interactive Cinema Museum - in the former tobacco factory? It's one of the smallest of Milan's permanent exhibitions but for sheer fun it is almost unrivalled. The multiple interactive exhibits tell the story of cinema and the museum archives contain over 20,000 films.
