This has to be one of my favourite museums in Milan. It's not overly large so you can get around it in 2-3hours even if you like to take your time.
It has a great mixture of artworks, and each of the rooms also has photographs of the way the room looked when the place was lived in as a city Palazzo (unfortunately it was heavily bombed during WWII but many of the rooms have been reconstructed including the beautiful circular staircase off the main entrance). The gem of this museum is the small study that is still in original condition (the only room), and is a work of art in itself!! The cost of this museum (9Euro when I last went) includes the price of the audio guide, and usually the ground floor contains a more modern exhibit if you get tired of looking at historical pieces.

I was able to enter this musuem for free, because of the Musei Aperti 2012, courtesy of Rotary Club Milano, but i would have gladly paid the entrance fee after seeing the artwork in the collection...i was pleasantly surprised at the size of the house, knowing i could easily spend a day just to fully admire everything...i specially liked the watches & the rifles ;)

We had never heard of the Poldi Pezzoli before our visit, and the wide alleyway to the glass entrance gives it the look of an office entrance. Don't be fooled, the art is fantastic and some of the rooms breathtaking. No crowds, plenty of places to sit and admire the artwork, and no crowds. Magical.

It's quite expensive for what is a quite eclectic collection. The armour is great, as are the watches but there are 22 other rooms to look through as well!
