It was a rainy Monday in Milan and we had to wait until 2:30PM to see the Da Vinci exhibit at the Palazzo Reale, so we decided to visit this museum, which we had read about on Tripadvisor. It is definitely a worthwhile thing to do. The collections span from medieval armaments to Renaissance paintings from Boticelli, Pollaiolo, Francesca, and... More

The castle is 10 minutes walk from the Duomo. It's a nice castle in the middle of the city. You don't need to visit it inside since it's pretty much an art museum with nothing *really* amazing, but from outside and inside its park, it is really beautiful. It is connected with Parco Sempione which is a nice park and... More

Beautiful old pallazo with interesting pieces of art. Worth a visit because of its intimacy and fine art.

As soon as you walk into this magical house there is a room set aside that was completely designed by Pomodoro, to display the arms and armor. Such a sensitive, tasteful choice for a great sculptor that works mainly in bronze to design this room sets the tone for the whole museum. Right by the entrance there is a large... More

This is a small museum in a palazzo on a commercial street. We walked by it at first even though there were banners out front. There is a nice collection of paintings and particularly other items (compasses, furnishings and some china and jewelry) which makes it worth a visit even if you have had enough of religious art .

I was really looking forward to visiting this small but enticing museum and I was not disappointed. The lovely and enormous ancient persian carpet at the entrance, the beautiful staircase and the small and precious library make you feel this place was a real home with such good taste. The masterpieces like the Botticeli's, the black Knight and the portraits... More

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
