Yep, this museum was a total mishmash of all three, but very interesting. All in all, the most detail was provided for the costume displays, very very basic info on the art, very little on the house but you could certainly walk through and just view the detail on the walls and ceilings and room layouts. The costumes I particularly... More

This is one of those places where the building itself is as interesting - if not more so - than the items on display. I was hoping for clothes galore, and what I got was lots and lots of paintings of different parts of Milan dating from a fairly short period of time. That said, the building itself is worth... More

This is a beautiful building, not grand just very stylish. Unfortunately there was no plan available to guide one through the display, the lighting did not do justice to the exhibits, particularly the artworks, and most disappointingly there was not information about the history of the building and the people who lived there. The family tree was well out of... More

We bought a ticket to visit the permanent exhibition. The paintings were nice, but there wasn't a clear direction which we had to go. We were only in for 5 minutes when one of the staff members approached us and asked us to show our ticket, which we found strange, since we bought them at the entrance. He didn't speak... More

Beautiful fashion museum, with an impressive collection and changing exhibits. A word to the wise--they will all but shove you right out the door if it's even close the closing time, so arrive with plenty of time to enjoy what's on display.

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... More

Beautiful exhibitions, consfanta fashion events and temporary displays of private fashion collections as well as of talented young artists! The staff is very friendly and the location is a great place to explore and admire even though the pocket will not allow you to splurge into high-end designer brands!

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... More

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... More

The museum is very central, close to via Montenapoleone. It enables visitors, to admire the spaces dedicated to the collection of paintings that illustrate urban scenes in Milan between the XVI and XIX centuries in a residence-museum, that deserves a visit itself, in a part of Palazzo Morando (free admission).

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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.
