Such an amazing and inspiring experience. This is a must see for anyone who enjoys contemporary art and architecture. Super friendly staff and a wonderful cafe onsite.

The Prada Foundation pales in comparison to the Louis Vuitton one in Paris. The remote location is unattractive, the architecture is interesting, but challenging with plenty of demanding stairs to access the galleries which are spread throughout this industrial complex. Nothing provides shade or coverage, so on a hot or rainy day, your visit can be unpleasant. There are currently more employees than visitors. They seem young and unprepared and some have an attitude problem. Information about the exhibits or the artists is minimal. If you like very cutting-edge, modern art, you will probably find the work shown provocative and interesting. The restaurant serves tasty snacks and light meals. I took a taxi. The fare was around $15-18 Euros each way from and to the Duomo Square.

Our visit to fondazione Prada was better than expected. Already when walking in we were very impressed by the architecture, but when we went into the exhibitions we were surprised by the large collection of contemporary art. The five car stud, which was a main attraction in the period we visited it was exceptional and felt very real, with humid sand on your feet.
The exhibitions change every few months so regular visits are possible.

First of all this new space, that Prada gave to the city, is wonderful and high level both on the architectural side and on the quality of the temporary and permanent exhibitions are hosted there. If Milan is the world-wide capital of the Fashion, it was definitely time that the Fashion system gives back something really impacting and shaping the city, not only shops or runways...
Said that, unfortunately this amazing space is clearly, as well as not declared, children UNFRIENDLY. If you propose a huge and basically empty external space, children enjoy that through running playing and making fun. This is their way to celebrate Beauty (of course I'm not supporting rudeness...). Or perhaps do you want to have little mummies?? Dummies are for shops not for public contexts...
Then, if you go inside to visit an exhibition, suddenly a crowd of supervisors, catching sight of your children from far, start to claim about rules and throw warnings to you like: "keep away from the art piece!" - being honest not all of them but the majority. I have clear in my mind what a great friend of mine - one of the first gallerist of Contemporary art in Milan, now unfortunately died - was used to tell me: the modern art can be watched, the contemporary art has to be lived. So, how to nourish the interest for arts in the youngests if you ask them to keep away from art manufacts??
It is obvious that the Fondazione Prada is a private foundation so, at the end of the day, they can decide whatever they want but, please, if you don't tolerate any flaw to the perfect image that this place gives back about the Fashion icon of Prada, please forbid children entrance or at least show clear rules of behaviour!

I guess I should have expected to love the buildings. We did. I should have expected to love only some of the artwork. The same thing. But you may like what we didn't and vice versa. It's a must for locals and visitors ,But go by car or taxi as the 10 minute walk from Lodi station was 30 minutes, on a hot day, for a fast walke,r and longer for me
