The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

I went to this museum because I wanted to see the fashion exhibit, and while it was a perfectly nice fashion exhibit, it is not as good as the Armani museum or any of several museums in Florence such as the Pitti fashion collection or Roberto Capuchi. However, I'd still recommend a visit; the ground floor is a modern exhibition space and when I went it was dedicated to Milan in the first world war. All in Italian but lots of photos, posters etc so I got the point even though my Italian is not very good. The upper floors are dedicated to the fashion exhibit but also a vast collection of paintings from the risorgimento period, in period furnished rooms, many of them specifically relating to Milan. Almost no one else there which is my favorite kind of museum. Palazzo Morando is in the heart of Milan's ritziest fashion shopping district so if you get tired of walking around watching the beautiful people spending money you can pop in this museum and enjoy the paintings for a while. It was also dirt cheap and while the air conditioning is spotty and there's no cafe, there is a toilet.

I really enjoyed this aristocratic palace. Both the architecture and collections are interesting and unique. i had a aha moment in front of Garibaldi's red shirt and poncho, fantastic! When I visited they had the Manolo Blahnik show on in the galleries. Amazing shoes with crazy styles, great fun - worth a visit!

We went to see the current exposition today and were thrilled by it.
A display of the 2 most important designers living today. A demonstration of a hotel, public and private with some of the most beautiful furnishings of contemporary marks. A MUST!

I was recommended to visit this museum by a resident of Milan. It was not easy to find this gem, eventhough I had the city map in my hands. I had many people showing me the way to this place, including 2 policemen. But the museum is worth the search and effort. It speaks the historical part of MIlan, through the paintings, furniture and costumes exhibited. I took about 20 minutes to walk to this museum from Duomo.

Don't know whether the emotions emerging from visiting the exhibition "La Milano degli anni Sessanta" (Milan in the sixties) is the same for everyone or is highly touching for native of this city only. The fact is that visitors are projected in a world that recals people's youth, in another dimension and spirit. Go there and let you be transported in a past innocent dream.

One of Milanos Palazzo’s in the city centre is worth a visit. Cheep fee. And now an excellent special exhibition with nice female dresses. The palace itself contains a beautiful collection of paintings. Many very interesting paintings from the period where Italy became one nation. The palace is in authentic condition with furnitures and rooms from different eras. Please note they take a lunch pause at 1300 and open again a hour later.

This palace is itself enough reason to be seen, but it also has some very nice paintings and pieces of furniture. Usually it houses costumes, but when we visited it, it was hosting a temporary exhibition of Manolo Blahnik art of shoes, It is absolutely something that cannot be seen elsewhere.

This was quite disappointing as museums go, especially as a fashion museum in a city like Milan. We got in for free, as it is free on Tuesday afternoons. It definetly wouldnt have been worth paying for.There was a strange exhibition downstairs which had strobe lights and some costumes from a TV programme. We really didnt understand this exhibition.
We went upstairs to what wa sthe fashion museum. The palazzo itself was really quite beautiful but the costumes which were there had no story to tell. They really were just some clothes on display with descriptions of what they were made from and alot of pictures. All the clothes appeared to be from the same era.
I expected alot more.

The eighteenth century Palazzo is worth seeing in its own right, for the paneling, furnishings and paintings, but if you are a lover of historical costume you will really enjoy the free-standing displays which mean you can get up very close to the garment from every side. The breadth of time represented is not great, with a preponderance of belle époque clothes but I love this period. There was no-one else in the museum, despite it being free, so it was luxurious to linger without feeling the need to move on. It is easy to find in a side street off the Via Montenapoleone, so when you have had your fill of all the modern fashion this is a quiet refuge. Not all the rooms are open every day, so may be worth a call to check the best day to go.

We have been visiting with a guided tour this hidden jewel downtown Milano. In addition to the beautiful architecture and the richness of the rooms of this ‘500 palace, you can discover through the precious paintings the history of Milano and how this city has been changing in the last centuries. I was particularly impressed by the painting on Duomo, the cathedral, and the sequence of the construction.
