  • Beautiful modern Museum housed in the former headquarters of ansaldo ... free entrance to visit it and good bistros to eat inside.

  • Very nice and trendy Museum of cultures is also suitable for business events, having rooms and a beautiful theater. Location situated in the vip area of via tortona. Chance to dine in the restaurant upstairs, very elegant and cared for. Highly recommended!

  • Let me start by saying that this review refers to the permanent collection and not to the exhibitions. Let's start with the positives: paid parking which costs very little and it saves from long looking for a parking place. The ticket is free for now. The setting is truly impressive, with a play of curves and surfaces that hypnotize. Too bad the way it exposed the permanent collection is disappointing. In the first room, dedicated to the Musaeum Septalianum the exhibits are displayed in a glass case and know what you are looking at one must identify the silhouette in a painting on the wall and trace the caption, always writing on the wall. It's not funny. When the same subjects were exposed to the natural history museum, the show was less pretentious but you could tell very well. Overwhelming then the thick gloom that has enveloped the Museum, which prevents you from capturing the beautiful details of many of the works on display (I mean the Japanese bronzes, don't tell me that the light deteriorates them). Some exhibits are kept in drawers that open only partially, then you will not see well the Japanese katana and many other things. By the way I noticed that in case of Columbian pottery, when the drawers are opened or closed the exhibits are moving, and I doubt this is a good thing. Beautiful and touching the room dedicated to the vicissitudes of the collection of the Museum of Ethnography, ravaged by Allied bombs during World War II. The quality of the exhibits is still high and well worth a visit, at least while the entrance is free. After he will have to talk again.

  • While a bit further out from the tourist spots in the city, the Mudec is well worth the trek. The permanent exhibition was ambitious and it's wunderkummer well executed, providing a novel take on the well-worn exhibition style. The temporary exhibition on Barbie- the icon was also novel, and I thoroughly enjoyed their approach to understanding the social world through the lens of a universally beloved children's toy. That said, I felt that overall the displays lacked depth and I left not knowing significantly more than I did when I first entered the massive space, but I understand the museum is relatively new and cannot wait to see what shows it puts on in the next few years.
  • Great architecture. Great exhibition.
  • Very cool place for exhibitions
  • Carino non male!
  • Uno spazio nuovo da scoprire.
