  • After the visit to the Portinari Chapel of Sant'Eustorgio and I went with the same ticket at the Diocesan Museum. I enjoyed the two cloisters and their restoration after the serious damage done by the bombs of 1943. Bella is the view from 1° chiostro del campanile di Sant'Eustorgio. The Museum, which occupies the ground floor and the buildings of 2° cloister, was built and opened in 2001 by Cardinal Archbishop C.M. Martini. In the entrance hall we can admire works linked to the life of St. Ambrose (374-397 ad). Rich is the permanent collection consists of works from the Diocesan territory. I have admired for a long time the gold funds collection of legacy Charity with precious works of the 14th and 15th century, (Bernardo Daddi etc.). The Museum contains many works from various legacies (Sozzani, Magnaghi etc.) works by artists from the 15th to the 20th century. and, because of the exposure that observes the provenance and accommodation in a historic building, it is difficult to visit but its richness is worth a visit. Absolutely unmissable are in my view sculptures by Lucio Fontana (ground floor left) including the splendid small stations of the way of the cross "of 1955. I'm still able to admire the "adoration of the shepherds" by Perugino (now closed) and the exhibition "SIBYLLINE MASTERPIECES: the brands and PLACES of beauty" by Daniela Phthisis and Vittorio Sgarbi, which will remain open until 30 JUNE 2018 at 1 St floor. It is a fascinating journey through works from the countries affected by the earthquake, path very well led by students of an art school in Milan. The Museum is open every day except Monday from 10 to 18 and can be reached from p.zza del Duomo by tram 3.

  • As every year the Museum proposes a "work of art from other museums in Italy as viaticum at Christmas time. This year a powerful Perugino introduces us to the mystery of God made man with ' the adoration of the shepherds ' with a soothing atmosphere, a provision of innovative characters and a technique of drawing that is unrivalled.

  • Nice little museum, ticket includes access to the nearby chapel and catacombs. No great masterpieces, but a pleasant eclectic mix of different collections.
  • This is a "to-die-for" museum. Superb in every way. It's late Gothic collection is stunning example of how warm and realistic the pre-renaissance masters had become. Almost makes one pity the transformations of high Renaissance style and tortured Mannerist decadence
  • The Diocesan Museum of Milan was founded in 2001 on the initiative of the Archdiocese of Milan with the aim to protect, enhance and promote the artistic treasures of the diocese under the spiritual context that inspired them. The Museum was inaugurated by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, Archbishop of Milan, 7 December 2001, and is located at the cloisters of Sant'Eustorgio, part of the ancient Dominican monastery. Inside the Diocesan Museum houses works from the Diocesan territory, from the Archiepiscopal picture gallery and from private donations. The itinerary begins with works related to the history of the Basilica of Saint Ambrose and Saint Ambrose's life and continues with works coming from the Diocesan territory including some significant evidence, whether this is sculptural, pictorial history of Lombard art from the 14th to the 19th century. All the works in this section come from various parishes of the Archdiocese of Milan created by great artists. Continuing the tour you can admire the works of private collection Marcenaro, gold funds a. Crespi, sculptures of Lucio Fontana and many others that would take too long to list them. Is a very interesting visit that I recommend to everyone.

  • The Diocesan Museum was founded in 2001 at the cloisters of the basilica of St. Eustorgius Ticinese neighborhood. I visited the exhibition of the masterpieces of opera del Perugino exhibition Sibillini and "the adoration of the shepherds". In addition the museum displays permanent works from the Diocesan territory from the Archiepiscopal picture gallery and from private donations. Very well organized and is, surely, a museum to visit.
