The Museum Poldi Pezzoli is near La Scala so it is an easy walk from center city. First the palace itself is amazing in that a family actually lived on the property. The collections are too numerous to mention, but know that many are of objects one will not find elsewhere --- sundials, decorative arts, jewelry, etc. along with religious... More

I enjoyed this former residence of Pezzoli turned museum as the day of our visit, there was a special exhibition of the four ladies portraits brought in from 3 other museums. This is not a big museum and there are several items worth seeing but it won't take more than 2 hours, at best.

As many museums and church were closed on Monday, i have chosen this museum as my last stop in Milan before heading to airport. The art museum is quite small ( the entrance fee is Eur10, not cheap either) and within a short walking distance from Montenapoleone metro station.

The museum is based on a private collection and includes many different types of objects (paintings, jewels, swords, armors...). Everything amazingly beautiful, and amazingly well exposed and illuminated (you will hardly see any light reflection on glass protections). Many other Italian museums (too often rich in content, but not that well organised and exposed) could learn something from this place.

You can find this small museum just north of the Scala theatre - very good value for money (E10) - lots of rooms and interesting artwork and features

Found this to be a very interesting museum and glad we saw it. A diverse collection of items and hardly any tourists so had plenty of time and space to visit. A must see if in Milan

A lovely milanese villa, now a museum. I enjoyed it, but it was not as notable as I expected. The Ambrosiana is a better choice if you have limited time

The historical background is quite interesting and what this young man collected worth seeing. From arms and other military paraphernalia to rugs and an excellent art collection there is something for every taste.
