  • I have been to this museum with my children of 3 and 5 years. It's true, the visit is brief but offers significant and well preserved pieces really. Recommend visiting for children.

  • Inside the Lombard Castello Sforzesco exceeded prehistoric Hall (with finds from the archaeological site of Golasecca wonderful moved here out of context and not valued, they would have had much more sense) there is an Egyptian room very interesting with two perfectly preserved Mummies and sarcophagi. A perfect introduction and worthy of note, is worth a stop during a visit to Castello Sforzesco

  • The museum is small but it has a lot of artefacts about four stages of civilizations, residing in Italy - Greek, Etruscan, Middle ages, Antiquity. It is located in an old monastery. It is worth for people interested in archeology and history
  • Very interesting and calm. A bit of history about the city ruins placed​ in the different parts of the city.
  • Small place, nice but not a big amount of exponate. For someone interested in history is a must.
  • Very small but informative. Can be full of kids and information is normally in Italian.
  • The little museum is a nice change from the bustling city and has some nicely preserved samples from times long gone. For 5€ just go there and enjoy one or two hours of archeology, depending on your level of interest. You can also sit and relax in the yard while looking at the ruins there.
