We had a couple of extra hours to kill at 4:30pm in Milan on the last day of our holiday and so we Googled some of the museums to spend a couple of hours in. We noticed this one opposite the Duomo and didn't know what it was until we did some online research.
First good point, it was open until 7:30pm.
Second good point, it was only five euros to get in.
Third good point, it was a museum of twentieth century art, so Milan's answer to the Tate Modern in London.
Now, the Tate Modern is fine and relatively enjoyable, but I found the art here in a completely different league in terms of my tastes. I'm not one of those poncey art lovers or critiques; I just like looking at odd pictures and sculptures.
Some of them were really to my taste and the fact you got some amazing views of the Duomo and the Piazza out of the windows as you wended your way up the different levels was a nice bonus.
Completely out of the blue, we stumbled on an Andy Warhol exhibition (apparently on until September), which topped the visit off nicely. I'd missed one recently in a local town, so to get this one, Marilyn Monroe, Campbell Soups et al, was a great treat.
I know we are spoiled in London that so many of our museums are free, but for five euros, that's hardly a bank balance sledgehammer and it was worth every penny.
