One room Shows the famous Beethoven Fries, via loud Speakers you hear the Music... When visiting Milano and having interest in teh famous Austrian painter, to visit this Exhibition is a must....

Excellent museum adjacent to il duomo. Currently showing an exhibit of Kandisnky paintings and drawings from the Center Pompidou. If you are not going to Paris, do not miss this exhibit. Some other parts of the building are also open, but the temporary exhibits are the main attraction here for me.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the Warhol exhibition, which was enhanced by very interesting information boards in Italian and English and a complementary audio sound track. The queuing system to get in at the beginning was a little bit shambolic and staff were generally unfriendly. We would have liked to visit the Kandinsky exhibition as well, but didn't fancy... More

We went to see both Pollock and Kandinsky exhibitions which were good but rooms are narrow which is attenuated by the entrance in groups. Lines for purchase of tickets are very large so ask the hotel concierge to arrange them.

Chaim Soutine's many wonderful expressive portraits that I never saw in all the museums I visited . Wonderful portraits by Modigliani, first class paintings by Utrillo, Kisling and more. Photos of the artists helped to see and the short movie told their stories in elaborate and very interesting way. We came out very impressed and excited. Felt that we really... More

When in Milan for the New Year, a friend tipped my partner that there was a really good exhibition of the Duomo Museum at the Palazzo Reale right by the Cathedral itself. This seems to be an entirely different Duomo museum than the one located under the Duomo itself with its own section as the Duomo Museum. Anyway, we headed... More

Master pieces from the Jonas Netter collection. More than 120 are the works on show by Modigliani, Soutine, Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, Kisling and other artists who lived and painted in Montparnasse a in the early 1900s during the so-called “mad years” when the famous Parisian quartier became the avant-garde centre of culture and place of international encounters.

The city of Milan has turned the Royal Palace into museums and a venue for exhibitions. Each exhibition (I think there are 7?) costs 11euro. Personally, I decided it was worth the price to see the current Andy Warhol exhibit. While I'm glad I saw his works in person, the exhibition was tiny and thus overpriced.

I've been twice to Palazzo Reale during my stay in Milan. First time was on 11/25 for an event during the International day against violence on women. The second visit was a few days later for the interesting Andy Warhol exposition.. In both cases the Palazzo Reale was the beautiful set of the events, so I did not actually visit... More
