I visited the museum with my mum and sister. We all enjoy history and the range of objects in the museum is wonderful. Each room is themed around something or someone different, which is interesting and unusual. The descriptions on the items and rooms are full of relevant and interesting information, and tell you what you actually want to know.... More

The museum is a short distance from the Piazza Scala and can be easily missed due to the fact that it does not have an impressive entrance. Once inside, what a collection of art.

We went because it was open on a Monday. The rooms were basically from a collector from the 19th century. Unfortunately only one of the rooms was intact as the others were destroyed in a 1943 bombing. So the walls were non architecturally interesting for most rooms. And the collection was a bit all over the place. Everything from paintings... More

For buffs of a wide array of medieval memorabilia, go check out this place although it times it feels like you are exploring grandma's attic.

This is a private museum of incredible breadth and refinement established by a nobleman Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli in 1881. Not only will you be overwhelmed by the collection, which ranges from military armor, paintings, sculpture, jewelry and watches, but you will get to experience it in the context of an aristocratic residence. The Dante study alone is worth the... More

we did not like so much the museum. The ticket price is in our opinion too much expensive for what they offer.

we had high expectations but we do not like so much. Nice but not spectacular. The good thing is that is close to Duomo.

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.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
