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

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. It turned out to be quite good (of course we cannot... More

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.
