If you are in Milan and want to see art, consider this one of the big ones... like the Met in NYC... extensive collection and worth it every time. Get the audio tour.

Brera Museum, in the Bohemian neighborhood of the same name is quite compact but offers a top collection of pre-Renaissance and Renaissance treasures: works by Giotto, Botticelli, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Veronose, Andrea mantegna and Bramante etc. Go early and then have lunch at one of the many restaurants in the district.

From the metro to the gallery, there's many interesting shops! Museum has paintings worth looking by Caravaggio and Raphael. Do take time to hang out in the interesting and cool neighbour too.

For all Arts interested travellers, this visit is probably just second in interest in Milan, after the Duomo. . One famous painting by Mantegna, the "Cristo Morto" is very important. There are also temporary exhibitions, currently (dec 14) one featuring the work and influence in Milan of Bramante.

The Brera is a fascinating art museum. Located on the second floor, the museum entrance stairway is just past the statue of "Napoleon, the Martyr for Peace." If that isn't ironic enough, the Italians call the statue "Napoleon and Tinkerbell." You'll see why when you visit. The art work is superb, the museum well organized, and the staff friendly and...

As you enter the courtyard entrance to the museum you could initially think your in the wrong place as it is full of international students milling around there is a real buzz of excitement in the air. When you get inside the museum the artwork as you would expect in Milano is breathtaking. Honestly, I only went because I knew... More

This was a gallery that contained just enough and not too much. Mostly big Renaissance paintings with Bible themes, which I love. Also some Modern art, which would have been fun to see more of!
