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

This was a surprisingly interesting day out. We weren't sure if the kids would get bored but in fact we had fun. The design museum does have some very mundane but also some very interesting items, some of which held our attention for some time. The building is very modern, with excellent facilities and friendly staff. The kids enjoyed wandering... More

The Triennale Design Museum has surprising and interesting exhibits that, in their way, explain why Milan has such a good reputation for design. One display featured miniatures of the sculptures that decorate Milan's public spaces. Another celebrated Milan's important figures in 20th century religion, industry politics and the arts -- from popes to pianists. Also on display were unusual designs... More

The Design museum is a very interesting exposition of contemporary arts and recent history of design. Moreover, it’s a great fun for people of all ages. If you take children they won’t get bored as it is not too long. The café with an excellent views to the park can offer a nice refreshment before or after your visit.

Good atmosphere, visited the Fornasetti retrospective which was outstanding. The other exhibitions were good and the permeant Design Museum is worth a visit
