La Triennale di Milano serves as a museum at the forefront of contemporary art, architecture, and design. Unlike most museums, its exhibits are constantly changing, ranging from those highlighting Italian design, music, and digital arts to urban planning and more. Major artists and designers such as Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Giorgio Armani, and Louis Vuitton have had exhibits on display in the past, and the international Milan Triennial Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Modern Architecture is held here every three years.

  • The Triennale is a Milanese tradition that breaks new ground in design, architecture, art. His Museum is located in the Parco Sempione.

  • A glass of white wine of quality less than average with a microscopic saucer of STALE chips = 8 €. If this is the brand of the Milan bar, sprouting like mushrooms nuts anywhere in the so-called post expo, KEEP IT. Quick english version: a simple, medium quality, glass of white wine with a small plate of rancid crisps = 8 euros

  • It is not the first time I go to the Triennale at some event, but every time I go I am always surprised positively for the beauty of the place! A few nights ago I went with a couple of friends, at the inauguration of a beautiful feminine photography exhibition entitled "another look". I recommend everyone to go and visit the Triennale at least once in your life because it's really nice and worth:-)! Very very nice also the view which I have visited!

  • This museum celebrating design ranks with any other of its type in the world. The Triennale is a short walk from the Castello Sforzesco. Its architectural style - celebrating the epoch of Fascist glory - diminishes the visitor at the same time as it celebrates its contents. Time and changing politics have softened some of its edges, yet the visitor knows the building represents "the State". Luckily, the curatorial staff knows how to lay out compelling stories with themes which transform the space into an extended entrance into the show's current theme. Finish your visit - or take a break - at the caffè, of course. Great bookstore too! Wall text generally in English as well as Italian.
  • For a design museum the interior layout of the space felt distinctively unintuitive, taking into consideration the ticket office is located a distance from it's main entrance. That said, it doesn't detract from the strength of the exhibitions to provoke thought, and wandering through the huge space is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. If you can spare the time, do buy a day-pass (I got it for 10 euros) as the four different galleries offer distinctively unique experiences. In particular, their exhibition on kitchen invaders was a fascinating take on the simple premise of our kitchens becoming increasing 'robotic'. If you've the time, see also the 'Food people' exhibition over at the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia "Leonardo da Vinci" to complete your visit!
  • Good food in terrace restaurant, terribly slow service. Took over 30mins to get our check, then another 10min for them to process.
  • Arts, outdoors, design, there is always something worth a visit. Plus there are a couple of bars and a rooftop restaurant and bar with an astonishing view and great food/cocktails.
  • Awesome place when the sun is out (which is alot) to take a break
