  • I was simply blown away by this museum. It exceeded my expectations in terms of the amount of art work from pre-Roman times to more recently. It was well worth the price of admission which is 10 euros for adult. This museum included works such as winged victory, house from Roman times, as well as the Nuns Choir, Basicilia de San Salvatore. In addition, since the Tosio Martinengo is being renovated, Santa Guilia features some of the works from that museum (i.e. works by Raphael) as well as two other art exhibits were all included.
  • I was there for the exhibition on 100 years of Dadaism and I must say it was one of the most beautiful cultural afternoons ever. Wonderful experience, all suggestive and history everywhere ... To visit the art gallery.
