Although directly located below the Central Train Station, there is no mention of the museum at the Station. You must go outside the station and enter through a separate entrance guarded by armed soldiers. The museum show the original cattle cars and tracks used to...More

I was expecting more exhibits and with English notes. I believe that the exhibition is developing but I felt was a bit thin. The experience of entering the cattle trucks used to transport the Jews to the concentration camps was very moving and made you...More

We learned about the history & memorial from a leaflet at our hotel. Our visit coincided with a large group of students. Their teachers were trying here & there to 'shuush' the talking of the youngers; but the chatter, again, evoked what must've been a...More

Found by chance, close to my hotel. Extremely surprised at the size and creativity of this memorial. Main caveat is that all plaques are Italian only, so for a thorough visit, use a guide or brochure.

Very interesting and well put together exhibition. Not that easy to find and armed guards at the door Really brings home the atrocities of the Holocaust and the huge 'indifference' carving very apt

Although Bicocca is a peripheral district, many
visitors will find it appealing. The district is
enveloped by the immense Parco Nord (North Park), one
of the largest parks in Europe. Inside is the theater
Arcimboldi, one of the most important contemporary
theaters where concerts and shows are organized. In
the same area, there is the University of Milan
Bicocca, whose distinct architecture rivals a movie
