It was walking distance from the apartment I stay, I went to see the the exhibition of Italian Design Beyond The Crisis. I loved design and contemporary art so it was a great value of money...a good start warm me up with Milano culture.

3 of us had an aperitivo sitting at a long table today. Then we decided to stay on for lunch. We were not allowed to eat at the table we were sitting at although it was perfectly adequate. We had to sit at a round table and we had to book. All booked. So no lunch. What a wasted opportunity...Aren't... More

We visited here as my son is studying digital design. There was an exhibition on where students have had to reuse everyday objects, that were being thrown away, to create new functional items. What a load of rubbish, figuratively and literally! There were two or three pieces that were interesting and well thought out but some were really lame. A... More

This is a really nice museum for those that really enjoy Italian design, in particular furniture and home objects. You can go through the museum relatively quickly, but could also easily spend the whole day exploring all the different parts. I was in a relatively large group of tired travelers so we went through at a faster pace than I... More

Visited in august and saw some very nice exhibitions. An extensive exhibiton (including an interesting video) on (the works of) architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha and several attractive exhibitions on modern photografie. Garden should be mentioned too. Even my teenagers did enjoy spending several hours here.

It starts off extremely well as in the entrance hall next to the very good book shop are a row of glass topped display cabinets with some wonderful Italian designed objects over the last hundred years. Once inside the galleries it is a disappointment I even saw a mediocre piece badly made and poorly designed that had been made in... More

The museum itself is worthwhile. Have usually 5-6 exhibitions, some are for free. Almost always really interesting, some quite outstanding. For example recently Fornasetti. The restaurant is really great, wonderful place for brunch on sunday, best to make reservations. The food is really good, and changes according to the season. All design chairs in white, each one is different. Great... More

We mainly came here to see an exposition of Italian design, but stayed to visit 2 more. The theme of the one we wanted to see was "design during autarchy". Many of the works are products made with old salvaged materials and new ones discovered by the growing chemical industry of the time. Many items are "just" furniture and ordinary... More

Milan is often described as the design capitol of the world and therefore the design museum sounded like an interesting thing to do. Unfortunately the museum reflected many of the exhibits in being arty in their concept and design but seriously lacking in practical usefulness and being overpriced. Text about the designs on display are pretty limited and where they... More
