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.

Not really interesting
Nov 2019 • Couples
Modern art is misleading. Most of the works are 18-19 century works.
And as a 18-19 century works museum, it's not too rich.
We found only a few interesting works.
Finally, the staff wasn't helpful or pleasent.

Beautiful collection
Aug 2019
One of my favorite museums in the city. Entry is very cheap and there is a lot to see! Especially loved the works by Angelo Marbelli and the Induno Brothers. Also lovely to see more of Francesco Hayez. Aside from a variety of paintings by both italian and international artists (was very surprised by the van Gogh), the museum is filled with may sculptures. Also recommend checking out the garden next to the mansion.

Disappointing
Aug 2019 • Couples
The staff here were very rude and unwelcoming. The lighting is really poor which makes it difficult to appreciate the artworks on display. Also, a note of caution to those who prefer contemporary art - you won't find much of it here. The art is mainly in the neoclassical and romantic style.

Well worth visiting.

I visited specifically to see the small Hayez exhibition (but I knew it was small before I planned my visit) and took the time to see the permanent collection, too, for the first time in 4 years.
I’d forgotten how good this place is.
For information, modern art in Italy typically means nineteenth and early twentieth century, so no piles of literal rubbish.
Well worth a visit!

Nice little gallery
Sep 2018 • Solo
A nice collection of Italian painters of 19/early 20th century; some paintings by very famous painers (Gaugin, Picasso etc) as well, but discovering unknown (at least to me) painers was the real joy of this place. Not crowded at all (on an early Friday afternoon). Worth a visit.

Nice collection in former palace on edge of park
Jun 2018 • Solo
A little way off centre and close to Palestro metro, this is a very pleasant gallery with a nice collection principally spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

When I went there was a small temporary exhibition of paintings and drawings by Boldini (a society portraitist in the same style as Singer Sargent) which was good.

In my opinion, this is not a major collection (or if it is, it wasn't on show) but it is worth a visit to see the work of some painters which, unless you've visited major Italian collections previously, you may not have seen.

The visit would be massively improved if the lighting of paintings could be sorted out, even partially. Obviously this is not a purpose built gallery, but the predominant use of (reflective) glass, sunshine coming through many windows and (in a couple of rooms) light from two massive chandeliers, makes seeing the pictures difficult. A real shame.

Charming
Jul 2018 • Friends
The building itself is very charming and there is a nice cafe in the court yard. Apparantly Napoleon loved here while in Milan.
As for the art on display: there are quite a few good pieces. I would especially pay attention to some of the sculptures - which are very scillfully lighted. On the first floor there are also several nice paintings in the larger rooms. In some of the smaller rooms the display is less interesting. Here quite a few of the paintings also lacks information about both painter and title... The top floor can easily be missed - except there is a collection of Toulouse Lautrec posters which is quite nice.
We came the first sunday of the month and therefore there was no enterance fee.

A neat place
Jun 2018 • Solo
Quite a small gallery but was worthy to go. For my great surprise it was free on Tuesdays after 2pm. Nevertheless, the normal price was not bad either: adults 5€, students and elderly 3€, and children under 18 for free.

Unexceptionally friendly staff.

Very nice for the last hour's price.

Last hour's entry is free here, and an hour is just enough to enjoy the collection. There is a nice park behind the building, in addition to the public gardens across the street. Sculptures on the ground floor, paintings as you move up. Definitely worth a look if you're into art.

With an original Gaugin
Oct 2017 • Couples
This gallery is worth visiting. It is situated opposite a delightful public garden (Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli). We wanted to see the Grassi Collection (a collection of artworks gathered by entrepeneur Carlo Grassi.

A very unusual body of work with some surprizes including a stunning little painting by Gaugin and some original work by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (including a poignant sketch of a man leading a chained bear along the street). Also some lovely examples of work by Morandi and well respected landscape artist Tosi as well as the more expected Manet, Van Gough and Cezanne.

What we really appreciated was being able to wander around these artworks without anyone following or bothering us. You could take as long as you wanted with no pressure from staff to move along. It was almost like discovering some of the artworks yourself. Very relaxed. Some of the paintings could be better placed.

Lockers available to place jackets etc. Toilets on site. Cafe and small book shop in courtyard.
