Here comes the Water section.

They have managed to bring in the whole ships and park it here for the Museum. Good initiative.

Had many collections of the warheads and ships used on the world war.

Notice the mermaid statue in the below pictures. It ahd been a custom to have figure-heads like this as a belief of protecting the vessels from fury of elements.

Air Section. Displays many flights from olden days and some of them was actually used in the First world war.

They also had the wreckage of an Australian flight which was shot down by Italian one during one of the war.

Now to the pics.

Landing Gear.

It says people flew in this. But really astonishing to see flights like this.

Flight, not a helicopter. Why? Because eventhough it has the fans on top, it does not climb from stationary position.

Model Helicopter. This was a nice work. Shows clearly how the fan blades are tilted, rotated or moved when you control the gears and steering.

oh how did I forget to update this?

Ok guys here I go again.

Once the Museum is done, I planned to see the Last supper painting. Eventhough I know that its not possible to just go there and get ticket for the entry, I wanted to try it out. So, decided to go ahead.

When i went as I expected I could only see a board saying "No cancellations for today". So, bad luck. Just saw the building from outside and left.

Somewhere inside is where you have those famous painting.

When I was passing this, I saw the Chocolate Ice cream shop. And the result was this

Then I went to the Castle. I always had a craze to see those Mummies. But never had a chance or managed to visit Egypt yet. And the very thought of seeing those in Milan made me more happy.

On the way to castle.
