We did not realize that the artist whose work they were exhibiting at the time we went would be so uninteresting. I had hoped that some of the original Palace would be available to be seen--not so--just plain rooms with a 3rd class artist. We had to make our trip to Milan in August during vacation time--so this was a... More

We visited the Klimt exhibition at the Palazzo Reale one afternoon about 1430. There was no queue and it was not particularly busy. Entrance for Seniors was euros 9.50 and that included an audio guide, which we found very useful. We have been to several Klimt exhibitions over the years even to the Belvedere in Vienna but there were many... More

Really worthwhile for the 11 Euros it cost -- well curated and representative artworks are all present (considering how much was destroyed). Also includes correspondence, photographs etc of his family life and works by relevant contemporary artists that he worked with (including his brother Ernst). There is currently an exhibition of about 200 works of Bernadino Luini at the Palazzo... More

The Klimt exhibition was really interesting even if it didn't have many famous artworks because it covered his entire life, from the earliest family portraits up to Salomè, which was still unfinished in his atelier when he died. We started our visit as soon as the museum opened (9:30) and I think early in the morning is the best time... More

If there wasn't a Klimt exhibit that was quite good and surprisingly interesting, this would have been a total waste. Only go if you are going to an exhibition you truly want to see.

In cooperation with the Vienna BELVEDERE, the Palazzo Reale Shows Gustav Klimt in a perfect manner. The Exhibition Shows many not yet so well known drawings, personal belongings. 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....

We were in Milan for our last anniversary, with our two kids. One of my local friend had recommended the Palazzo Reale , especially for the scores of exhibitions. Because the monument stands just besides the cathedral, we decided to give it a try on the second or third day maybe. One of the best exhibitions I had seen in... More

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.
