  • A true wonder half-hidden in the streets of the fashion ... House Museum of surprising beauty, a Renaissance style admirably recreated by the taste and the pleasure of family members Bagatti Valsecchi who lived here until the 1970s. A must-have for anyone who wants to divert in my view from the city's historical and artistic itineraries beaten. A real jewel.

  • I visited the "Casa Bagatti Valsecchi" quite by accident, via del Gesù. I never imagined to run into a wonderful Museum chock-full of everything and especially beautiful portals and valuable galleries adorned skillfully with works of art. This House and who wanted her (Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi) honour Milan and the ancient heart of this beautiful, not enough known "art city". To visit!

  • Great private museum that keeps your attention till the exit. Each room is different and has its own story. There is something for everyone - art, military equipment, everyday items, clever architectural and plumbing solutions. I really enjoyed my visit.
  • I get tired rather easily in museums as they tend to absorb a lot of mental energy, but I left this museum feeling inspired and energetic. It is exceptional. First of all the building itself is much smaller than most museums. It's the first floor of a Milanese townhouse and below it, in the courtyard, is a high-class restaurant. Above it are some government offices. The best word to summarise it would be "intimate". The museum is a showcase of the family home of the Bagatti Valsecchi family who, in the nineteenth century, built up a superb collection of renaissance objets d'art -- tastefully combining them with specially made reproduction pieces. They were amateur designers and they painstakingly created special wallpapers, friezes, archways and a whole host of design features that showcase the art in a most incredible way. The brothers who created this jewel also had a sense of humour, which is unusual in a museum. The family name was Bagatti which, in Piedmontese Italian means "shoemaker" -- a very un-aristocratic profession for a rich noble family. But the brothers weren't snobs and they would enjoy the Milanese streetlife like everyone else. One of the brothers would cycle round town on a massive penny-farthing bike, creating so much noise that the mayor built a special bike lane for him. They also included images of boots around the house, in celebration of their origins and to prick any social pretensions that may have built up around them. If you go to Milan this is where you must go. My visit was made all the more memorable by the superb guiding of Guido Codecasa and if you're lucky enough you too may meet him. His English is impeccable, as is his knowledge of the building and its artworks.
  • It is a House that leaves the visitor marveled at how we can decorate home with ideas and taste and let live in the family home with no inhibitions whatsoever ... a very nice idea home to children too. Nice idea to create a Museum of family life.

  • An experience to be lived, an ancient atmosphere of elegance and visit this museum it seems to take a dip in the past. The rich collection of paintings of old masters including Giovanni Bellini or fifteenth-century furnishings, Renaissance majolica, glass, Giampietrino, ivories, jewellery, weapons and armor.

  • 美丽的历史之家,我真心推荐这里。这里的门票是9欧元,但是这个基地还有另外2座美丽的建筑,你可以花15欧元买个可以游览这三个地方的通票(如果你想的话可以不是同一天来)。你不会后悔的。我们30分钟就游览完了这个博物馆,当然如果你想仔细游览所有的艺术品可以花更多的时间。也有录音解说介绍,但是对我们来说有点太冗长了。
