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.

Great museum if you love opera
Dec 2019
I visited the La Scala Museum in December 2019. I had visited it twice in July 2018. The price of the ticket has increased to 9 euros. The core exhibit was just as interesting as when I visited in 2018. There were paintings, busts, costumes and many other artificats. You also get the opportunity to view the inside of the La Scala. This time they were setting up the stage for a performance. Near the viewing place, I noticed a lot of photos that I did not notice last time. Photos of famous people such as Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Charles De Gaulle, etc. And a bust of Puccini. Even though I have been to this museum several times I always enjoy my visit.

Charming, small museum with priceless collection
Mar 2019
We went to this museum because my wife is a big opera fan (wouldn't say so about me). She really loved it and even my son and I were amazed.
It is a small museum about La Scala and the opera in general with a priceless collection of musical instruments, original music-books, costumes, paintings and statues of many famous opera singers and composers, posters of operas conducted at La Scala over the years. When you visit the museum, you can also get access to one of the stages and see the opera house inside (provided there are no rehearsals). We combined the museum with a guided tour of La Scala and both were simply amazing.
A charming museum, not only for opera lovers!

Grand Theatre, Cosy Museum
Dec 2019
Worth visiting if you're at all interested in opera or La Scala history. I couldn't figure out any clear progression/organisation to the artefacts but the touchscreens in each room were an easy to use and interesting source of information on each of them. There's also a museum mobile phone app that looks well designed, but I couldn't follow where it was referring to in the museum so simply used the touchscreens.

My wife’s idea to come here and I didn’t have much interest BUT have to say it was very interesting hearing the history of the famous place and seeing the theatre. Much more impressive inside that out. We didn’t see a show but who knows maybe next time.

Opera at La Scala
Oct 2019
We saw an opera at the La Scala and, of course, it was an incredible experience. However, one has to be careful when purchasing tickets. If you are not on the main floor, you will undoubtedly be in a box which has two seats that allow you to lean over and see the stage. From the three seats behind, you can see nothing. Our tickets said 'limited view' which we thought would mean that perhaps there was a pole in the way. We did not expect that we would see nothing unless we stood up. What was worse was that the machine that allowed you to see the Italian text or English text was only available to those in the front two seats. So, in our seats, you couldn't see and you had no access to text!

Go when there are no rehearsals
Sep 2019
We had three days in Milan. When we went to La Scala on the first day, the gentleman at the ticket booth advised us to come back on Sunday where there were no rehearsals planned so that in addition to seeing the museum, which was quite interesting, we could go into the boxes and actually see the concert hall itself

Fasinating despite having no interest in opera
Jul 2019
Well worth a visit. Plain - even boring - from the outside the La Scala opera house is sumptuous and astounding within. Seeing the stage itself is great but the true experience is just wandering the many rooms filled with props and information. also has the best use of new technology with its ipad that I've ever come across. so worth our time.

Music lovers would love it
Jun 2019 • Solo
Whoever loves music and opera would love it. It is a beautifully set museum that leaves you a romantic sense of years past. So, with the same tickets you can enter certain hours in the main theatre and see the opera house, stage and hall....but this is only a 5 minutes thing to do, you enter and get out :)

A Glimpse of La Scala
May 2019 • Couples
We visited the La Scala Museum (including brief access to the La Scala theatre) while in Milan as part of a trip to Italy in May 2019. The Museum area consists of several rooms with artifacts, paintings, costumes and photographs of La Scala’s operas, composers and performers. The highlight for us was the opportunity to see the theatre itself from the third tier of box seats; both the tiers of seating and the stage were impressive and worth seeing. The entire self-guided visit lasted less than 45 minutes and cost 18 Euros for two adults.
