This exhibition is in thePalazzo Reale Milan . A brilliant exhibition showing different aspects of Leonardo's work alongside some of his contemporaries.Good explanation panels in English. allow plenty of time asthere may be a. queue. Try to avoid guided tour groups which spend too much time around the key exhibits. Information for less mobile visitors is disgraceful. The exhibition is... More

This venue is mainly used for special exhibitions. I went to the Sforza/ Visconti Exhibition which was excellent. I also visited the Duomo Museum right next door which was wonderful. The second museum entrance was only 1 Euro in addition to the entry to the exhibition. If you are 65 or over dont forget to give some ID in Milan... More

Used as a special exhibition hall, there is currently an exhibit of medieval Lombard art which includes illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, painting and metal work. The audioguide is included in the price of admission and has about 2 dozen entries. The rooms are introduced in Italian and English but the individual items are described only in Italian. The catologe is excellent... More

Get your tickets from the internet to avoid really long queues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! palazzo reale is left to rotten, the guards are completely inflexible (be there at 12 o'clock to get your pre-paid tickets or else... ), and it is not a matter of security, and only one of them speaks English. Visit the toilets to have opinion by yourself....... apart from... More

The Cal Pirelli collection is now on display, thanks to the Group making 50 years of their archive available for the exhibit. The concept, they say, reflects the Group's way in pioneering innovation to stay ahead of the game. And that’s true. There is something about photographic works that feels experimental and provocative in form, set up and designed in... More

As a dutch-born I was curious to the Van Gogh exposition, big announced in nearly every paper or magazine in Italy. The're even bus tours leaving from my home town in Piemonte... But actually there it was a dissapointment. Very small rooms, only 3 or 4, with of some great paintings but for not-italians not easy to have more info.... More

PLUSES Exhibitions are great all (almost) year round at Palazzo Reale. Eg. Chagall restrospective until January 2015 is awesome! MINUSES Waiting lines not well indicated, toilet without soap and paper. Visitors are not well instructed to be quiet and turn cells off. Group guides are supposed to talk through microphones but they're just too loud.

The Palazzo Reale have put on an exceptional exhibition of Marc Chagall's artwork, with more than 220 of his paintings spanning some of his earliest work to his latest work. Congratulations to all concerned! A minor criticism: the signage in the museum is not up to par!

We went here to see Chagal exhibition with 225 (!) paintings. This is enormous collection in one place, a rare find. When in Milan, I would highly recommend to check Palazzo Reale for current exhibitions, it seems that there is always something great going on. And Chagal Retrospective is actually worth a flight to Milan.
