This unique museum is quite an interesting place to visit. There seems to be no logic in the way everything is displayed, without chronological order or theme. Yet you'll find a collection of lace fragments, another of weapons, paintings, furniture, etc. It's worth the detour if you're interested in any of these or just interested in looking at a bit...

Milan doesn't have the ruins of rome or the art of Florence so if you are sight seeing in Milan, its a must see. Just don't have high expectations

For a "quick" view of how Milan's wealthy families lived, check out this collection of arms and art housed in a former mansion.

This is an interesting little museum with an eclectic mix of artwork. Whilst there is much of high quality to see there is nothing to particularly make this collection stand out from other museums and little that is specifically milanese. Nevertheless, the range and quality of artifacts displayed make this an enjoyable visit for a couple of hours.

Fantastic collection of medieval art in a wonderful setting, starting with the fountain in the entrance hall stairs. They've a great range of furniture, some of the cabinets in particular the pair of ivory carved cabinets with maps of the world and cities were stunning. Near the end they've a very interesting display of portable sun dials from the last... More

This small wonderful museum is like the Wallace in London, the Burrell in Glasgow or the Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, an originally private and eclectic collection of fascinating and beautiful pieces of art and craftsmanship. It is located in the Poldi Pezzoli palazzo, tragically bombed out during WWII so that the rooms themselves were destroyed. However the collection remains and... More

As we arrived in Milan on a Monday, when most museums are closed, we chose to come here and what a find. We were delighted. First of all we got a combined ticket for the museum and La Scala Museum (Mondays only) for a senior price of euros 7. Good value. As we entered to the right we saw the... More

It was not on my must-see list but was one of the few opened on Monday, our first full-day in Milan. So happy to have visited it! Beautiful collections of art, medieval weaponry and armor and jewelry.

If you have been to London and liked the Wallace Collection then this museum cannot be missed. it is housed in a private palace which is very impressive indeed with magnificent chandeliers, wallpapers, carvings on the ceilings etc, alone the wonderful curved staircase taking one upstairs with the fountain at its foot is beautiful. There are the most fantastic paintings... More
