Loads of Croatian football fans in duomo square so it was a nice change to enter a quiet gallery, shame about the kids running around screaming. Excellent collection of art.

Very pleasant visit to this art museum. Away from crowds and queues. Nothing outstanding, but just enjoyable to quench on some modern art in a spacious exhibit. The cafe here is quite pleasant too.

This futuristic building right beside the Duomo houses a fine collection of Futurist art. Wind your way up the helter skelter entrance the ascend the illuminated eco escalators to a feast of modern Italian and other European art. Visitors are greeted by the arresting Il Quatro Stato by da Volpedo before entering the beautifuly lit rooms containing gem after gem.... More

Very often with new art museums the building itself tends to be the main attraction. This certainly is the case with the Museo del Novecento. The glass addition wraps around the centuries old core in a spiral fashion and visitors wind their way up to the exhibition level. There they follow the exhibits up to the top before descending by...

If you come to Milan make sure to visit this museum: its collection includes works from all the main artists who lived and worked in Milan from the beginning of the XX century to the 1970s. Some of the main works of the collection are from Boccioni and other futurists (Balla and Severini), Martini, Sironi and Manzoni. The Fontana's room... More

Amazing museum for everybody who loves art and wanna have a look at modern italian art. Fontana, Burri, Boccioni, Manzoni. If u have time go take a look at this museum which might look tiny in comparison with the MOMA or other main modern art museum but is definitely worth a visit.

One of the best modern art museums in Italy. Great for a change of pace. Fanstastic futurist section as well as interesting modern works. Great views of the Duomo. Museum housed in a funky building but I agree with another reviewer about having trouble following which way to walk so you don't miss anything.

A friend had great things to say about the Futurism exhibit at the Met, so I figured while in Milan I would check out this museum, even though I am not big into the style. This city certainly was a central hub for the movement. I guess I was hoping more for illumination of the movement's impact on society and... More
