The Permanent exhibition on Italian Design of the 20th Century, Interior Design , Furniture , Industrial Design, Coffee machines the first modern , functional kitchens. Temporary exhibitions on famous italian... 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

If you just pop in there is always something worth seeing, the permanent contemporary collection anchor for the temporary shows and outdoor play area and exhibits during the summer. Even the bar has sensational designs (nb the hollow coffee spoon and the video tables) .. The space often organizes fab labs for young kids , like play in a steel... More

Cold & rainy day and indoors was our option. €10 entry fee entitled access to museum & current exhibitions. The Italian Design section left me feeling flat & disappointed - I was expecting something more, other than flashing lights & odd displays. The exhibitions displaying photography by Nicollo Biddau & art by Piero Fornasetti were excellent & made the visit... More

Visited this museum on a wet & snowy afternoon in milan. 10EUR entry gets you access to all the exhibitions on and it was one of the highlights of the trip for me. Fantastic exhibits including made in slums by mathare-nairobi, piero fornasetti, massimo Minni and several other high profile photography & design names. Easy way to spend 2-3 hours.... More
