  • A collection of interesting exhibits ranging from the bronze age to late Antiquity. The Roman World Union and Eastern Gandhara, exhibits are fascinating. The Museum is divided into two cloisters, in the first there is the section devoted to old Milan, in the main courtyard stands the polygonal Tower and walking on the catwalk we arrive at the new extension. It is a very pleasant and suitable for any age.

  • 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.
  • 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 :)
  • Interesting museum with a range of artifacts.
