“An outstanding, intimate collection”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

An intimate collection with a vast array of paintings, sculptures and other artefacts. Spent a couple of hours walking around and would recommend this if you are not too tired of Christian paintings and sculptures by this point in your visit.

“Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milano”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

One of the most important private collections in Milan. Botticelli's "Madonna and Child" is here along with fine displays of jewelry, porcelain, tapestries, antique furniture and many exquisite artworks. This museum is a short walk from the Duomo and is worth a two hour stop.

“Gorgeous art displayed in an opulent setting”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

If you are a fan of Italian Renaissance art, the visit is worth it just to see the gorgeous paintings by Pollaiuolo and Botticelli. They are displayed in an opulent palazzo, so one gets an idea of how the residences of wealthy collectors looked. Besides paintings, there are fine and interesting collections of clocks, Venetian glass, portable sundials, and tapestries.

“Wonderful historic residence now a great museum!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

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.

“Great museum”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

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 ;)
