Often overlooked, the collection is fantastic and the building of great interest. Also, during the several visits we have made, there has never been much of a crowd and so you can see everything virtually uninterrupted.

The Poldi Pezzoli is a small collection inside what used to be an estate owned by the family. The collection has enough variety to even keep older kids interested for the 1-2 hours it takes to explore.
