  • Municipal Archaeological Museum of Milan is located in the premises of the monastery of St. Maurice, in principle, at some distance from the main tourist attractions, but walking around Milan. yet walk here easily. Museum of course for fans of any excavation-broken sculptures, tools etc. Exhibits are divided into halls and historical epochs, some periods (such as Egyptian, you won't see here exhibits corresponding to this period of history can be found in the Museum of the Sforza castle). Many in the Museum of ceramics, mosaics, sculpture, there is even a period of mysterious Etruscans, because all I recommend a look ... Tickets cost 5 euros, but there are hours and days when you can visit the Museum free of charge: every day in the last hour of work, as well as every Tuesday from 2 pm.

  • A blast from the past for a magical place. Just walked in the door of the former convent of the Monastero Maggiore, seem to be in another reality, no longer in Milan. The path clear and exhaustive allows you to go back in time, when Milan was capital of the Roman Empire. In addition you can see Greek, Etruscan and medieval collections plus a little known area of India, Gandhara, culmination of Alexander the great. Not to miss anything, next to the archaeological museum, you can visit perhaps one of the most beautiful churches in Milan, his Sistine Chapel, the Church of San Maurizio-which was part of the Larger Monastery in the 17th and 18th centuries.

  • Is done is kept really well. You have to remember that it is not a huge Museum. It is also ideal to visit with children, who will not get bored, since there is a succession of salt and salt. Also, being on multiple floors, each tied to a different historical period, maintains arouses the attention. Like other museums in Milan, you can visit him one Sunday a month for free. Organize activities (such as treasure hunt) toddlers (reservation required-watch site) and App for Android and ios.

  • A rich, unexpected little Museum I would say. The collections are with us in the history of Milan from the Roman to the Lombards. Unique opportunity to see how he could be the Milan. Inside is a tower forming part of the walls massimiane.

  • Although little noticed is a nice Museum to visit to see some relic of ancient peoples who inhabited Milan, Lombardy and Italy in General. It will not be the Archaeological Museum of Rome, for the quality and quantity of finds, but it's still interesting to see Roman finds, the Etruscans, the Lombards and even Greeks; the staff is friendly and helpful. Beautiful two Roman towers recently restored and open to the public (the one with a square base can be visited only by appointment). The ticket price ranges from € 3 to € 5, according to age groups, but starting from one hour before closing time and every Tuesday from 14:00 admission is free.
