  • 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

  • Very nice Museum which is offered after the visit to the Church of San Maurizio. There's a very good insight in the first days of Milan with a large model of the city of the antique Milan.

  • 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.
  • For only 5 euro admission a great place to visit in Milan, focussing on Roman, Greek and Middle Ages finds from the town and the main exhibit the two towers that were part of the city walls. Good value and worth your time when in town.
  • Decent museum for the history of milan and a surprisingly good collection of Etruscan artifacts. Well worth a visit
  • Beautiful archeological museum! Explore the history and development of Milan throughout the centuries! There are few very interactive panels where you can follow the lives of Milanese in time! Being one of the city's museums, the entrance is free every first Sunday of the month so do not miss your chance!
  • Well designed museum with nice pieces of art :) highly prepared and friendly personell :)
