One of the most beautiful palaces of the city. It usually hosts exhibitions around the greatest Italian painters. A ticket is usually required so you may want to check online prior to your visit. The architecture of the building is worth a visit alone.

From the outside the Palazzo Reale is plain, overshadowed by the impressive Duomo and the newly renovated Modern Musuem next door. However it is the former Palace and 24 of its rooms have been given over to this exhibition. On the positive side there are many drawings that impressed, there are paintings and sculptures too, and items from contemporaries and... More

What I liked about this space is the various exhibit options. I was able to see pieces from the Duomo and two great exhibits. Some of the best selections of Da Vinci art as well as Italian artists employed during the height of the Renaissance by the Sforza family. Each installation was set up expertly with great explanations in English.... More

I was here for the Leonardo exhibition in May 2015. The exhibition was fantastic, and is certainly recommended. The Palazzo Reale is located close tot he Duomo, so, easy to reach by public transport, and to find. The exhibition is less easy to reach. There is a dearth of signs, which needs to be remedied, but the numerous guards that... More

If you are in Milan in summer 2015, go so see this exhibit. It has some paintings, some models and lots of drawings and illustrates incredibly the hand of this master. Don't miss it!

One of the top places to visit. We were there during Michelangelo exhibition. Perfect place for exposition, located near Milano Cathedral.

This is a unique piece of history on two counts. One is that it is a rel palace with each of the rooms maintained in a fantastic manner. Second this venue hosts number of world class exhibitions from time to time. One tip if you are planning to see an exhibition buy your tickets online to beat the ques. However... More

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
