Play, do, think, grow is what drives MUBA every dau in the construction and planning of the activities.
Children experience, know and learn through play and direct experience, but as well as being a cultural center that encourages children's creative thinking, MUBA addresses all the ages proposing cultural projects including visits dedicated to high schools and universities, training dedicated to teachers, educators and cultural operators and thematic conferences related to temporary exhibitions.
MUBA is open to families with visits organized at fixed hours of entry and a closed number of 75 minutes. The programming may vary. Please always consult the calendar on www.muba.it.
MUBA has been the first museum in Milan to propose great exhibitions, unique for dimensions and number of visitors. It is located inside the spaces of La Rotonda della Besana and it is surrounded by a municiapl park available for all the citizens.
MUBA has always carried out numerous collaborations and participates in international calls to guarantee the innovation and continuous updating of the projects.
MUBA is a founding partner of Hands on! International - Associazione Europea dei Musei dei Bambini and is part of ICOM (International Council of Museums).
On 7 December 2023 MUBA received the Civic Merit ("Ambrogino d'Oro") from the Municipality of Milan. The recognition is awarded annually by the Municipality to men, women, associations and organizations who have been able to make a special contribution to the city.
In 2023 MUBA celebrated 25 years of activities. To celebrate this important milestone, MUBA has produced a publication entitled "25 Voices x 25 Years" edited by journalist Chiara Pasqualetti Johnson that includes 25 testimonials from some of the key players in MUBA's history.
