Amazing

A hidden jewel, went with my two children 10 and 12, never seen them more interested in a Museum. The story of the brothers is fascinating and the park where the museum is located deserves a visit on its own merit

an unexpected pleasure

Very interesting. My daughter Lucy and i were lucky to be shown round by Marco Castiglione himself. We had set out for a half hour walk to the park and back and decided on the spur of the moment to visit the museum. It was well worth it. We spent about two hours there. The Nubian gold mining part was maybe the most interesting but it was all very well set out and well explained.There are some unexpected pleasures in Varese :-)

My sister in law recently got married here. The room was perfect with a beautiful fireplace. The cardinals bed in the next room was very interesting.

Fascinating museum, perfect for children too

A rainy day in Varese with a 7 and 9-year old, what to do? We surfed the net and found this museum. We went, not expecting much. We were so pleasantly surprised! The museum is a jewel. The building and grounds themselves are worth the visit. So well kept! We were greeted by one of the brothers Castiglione, who took us through the first floor of the museum and told us of the pieces with such passion, my two, normally unruly, children were captivated. He spoke as though he himself had discovered the prizes in the museum, at first I wondered why, then I looked carefully at the pictures dotting the walls and realised they were of the founding brother's expeditions. They had indeed brought these pieces together themselves over the decades! The second floor was guided by an equally-amazing and passionate family member, who managed to tell stories in such a way that the children understood and remembered almost everything they has seen in the exhibits - he spoke English perfectly!
