  • Very nice collection of works of art. The view from the top floors on the Duomo and Victor Emmanuel II Gallery is also beautiful

  • The Museum contains works of the twentieth century Italian of varying stature author and artistic genre. Some rooms are in my opinion more interesting than others (some saltabilissime) but everyone has different tastes and is attracted to various works. Interesting free opening the first Sundays of the month (which devalues the art staff, shame on you nay recalls and youthful audiences like the rest of Europe! Just empty museums in the hands of an elite old and boring!!!)

  • I came here with two friends and were slightly disappointed with the city, we decided to visit the Central Museum of the 20th century that is a stone's throw from the duomo. The building is well maintained both inside and out and comes with stairs and elevators, so accessible for people with a problem. The Museum has a vast collection of works of art of the ' 900 mostly Italian artists (Balla, Boccioni, Modigliani, Marinetti etc) but also foreign artists such as Picasso and others. The thing that amazed me most were the "interactive works", that is, rooms where you can experience first hand the works and operate them. All works are well spread out and divided into large spacious rooms, entrance to the Museum is free for young people who have not yet reached 25 years of age and adults over 25 only costs 5 euros.

  • It was very pleasure to visit this museum. and it was very great to see Morandi works in real and the sightsee on the top floor. But, they have very weird enterance policy or they don't need any rules. On the website, it is free to enter for Milano card holders but the ticket office said no. So i asked why and they tuned out that they didn't understand english and just kept saying no and kept saying something in Italian. And plus, they charged for under 25 years old, Even they checked my id card.
  • Not the best I have seen judging the permanent collection, but I guess it's the best Italy has to offer. I wish they would do more in this genre. Anyhow, you will be entertained!
  • The entrance to this museum has a bit of a New York Guggenheim Museum feel with a ramped entrance to the galleries. It is a museum celebrating the art of the 20th century with a concentration on Italian sculptors and painters. Make sure to take the escalator to the top floor for a spectacular view of the Duomo. And while near the Duomo, don't forget the La Rinascente department store's café and food hall on the seventh floor just across from the roof of the Duomo for an elegant after-museum drink on the terrace. Museum free after 5:30 PM and worth the price of entry before!
  • Not the best permanent collection. However the top floor is really great with perfect views of the Duomo opposite from huge windows.
  • I didn't even know what is Novecento art before I visited here. There english curation is very poor though
