It is a nice building, and the ticket of Euro10 is valid for 24 hours, so you can come and go. I'm a philistine I suppose, because there were just too many religious paintings for me - I mean, rooms and rooms of them! It was a change to see a small collection of more secular and modern paintings and... More

This was a nice little oasis of peace and tranquillity in the heart of Brera (a very busy district).

Small jewel in very center of Milano, surely is worth the visit. You can start from the XIII Century painting to enjoy then... Mantegna, Canaletto, Raffaello, Caravaggio, Hayez, Fattori... need anything more?

First of all, ticket lady tells you they don't have il bacio by Hayez after you buy the ticket.(I have literally know idea why do you even still have to pay the full price when they don't have the MAIN PAINTING) Most of the painting collections are christian themed which you can find everywhere else in Europe. In addition, seems... More

We went in a day it was open until 23h (it seems sometimes they do it and you only see it on the pinacoteca site). They have nice paintings of the XV and XVI centuries, but the modern art paintings are not so good and they seem out of context

This is one of my favourite art galleries. It has a really interesting collection, including Luini, Bellini, Congegliano, Piero Della Francesca, Veronese, and lots more. Two things I particularly like about the Brera are [1] that it is relatively uncrowded compared to many other galleries with major works such as the Uffizi or the Accademia and [2] the art work...

Definitely a place to visit if you pass by Milano. Probably the collection is not as complete as other famous museums, but worth a visit

Staying in Brera

Neighborhood Profile
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
