  • In his little one of the finest museums I've ever been to. Many works of the greatest artists of the 19th century. A fantastic experience, a joy to behold.

  • Small museum in a beautiful villa near the center of Milan. The collection is well organized and very well maintained. Not to be missed

  • This beautiful villa located in a strategic position and contains a stunning collection of Milan's central predominantly paintings of the 19th century. Worth going to because the villa itself is an elegant example of neoclassical architecture: the interiors are opulent, ornate ceilings, inlaid floors, often by the great cabinet-maker Beetles. Of particular note is the works of Medardo Rosso and Canova.

  • A really nice art museum that looks to bridge the gap between Italian artists and Modern Art. Most of the museum was being changed around as I was there. Some really fantastic pieces including a few by Picasso. Definitely worth the price of admission which was 5 Euros when I went.
  • Fantastic museum, child friendly and very central. Futurists, contemporaries, cubist, kinetic art There is so much natural light and great views of the Duomo and rooftops from the windows that it is never oppressive. Large spaces and smooth transitions from one space to the next. Highly recommended.
  • A splendid gallery with good selection of Italian as well as some French, Spanish and German works from 18-20C. Maybe it was a slow day, as we had the place to almost to ourselves which was a treat. I discovered many new artists during my visit. The temporary exhibits are displayed in a beautiful modern addition which replaced the original stables.
  • Nice museum! For those who like sculptures. The cafe just by the museum is great
  • All u want for modern art. Van Gogh, Picasso,
