Museo Poldi Pezzoli, Milan
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Redecorated in 19th century with furnishings that coordinate with the paintings, Museo Poldi Pezzoli is the epitome of Italian taste. The private collection showcases artwork from Northern Italian and Flemish masters. Glassworks, ceramics, jewelry, and weaponry also grace the well-appointed rooms. Thirty years before the rooms were redesigned, the palace was rebuilt in the Neoclassical style with an interior English garden. View the rooms and building with a discounted ticket by presenting your ticket at the nearby Museo Teatrale alla Scala.

  • We thought that a 'house museum' would show us a what the house of a noble looked like. It is actually a house that has been converted into a museum. Only 1 room was truly preserved. However, the coll...  more »
  • Palace private collector Poldi Pezzoli, which contains rugs, sculptures, tableware, separate room devoted to collection of weapons. Reminded me of a similar museum Jacquemart-André, Paris. Very beautiful staircase with a fountain.

  • what is interesting is the palazzo architecture. it is a varied presentation of some very nice objects and paintings, rugs, but most not spectacular. worth visiting if you are in the area.

  • Beautiful collection of Renaissance and Baroque objects, hidden in the quiet of a Palazzo, buttressed against the savage hords of commercial tourists a bit further.
  • I went with high expectations but left woefully disappointed. The staff were on a whole unfriendly (although one gentleman did try and point us into the right direction) and the space offered a very didactic experience, with the pieces offering little to no information and the expectation that one enters with the prerequisite knowledge necessary to enjoy the works. In choosing the charge such hefty admission fees and seen in comparison to Milan's other cultural institutions, I would have to say that the Museo Poldi Pezzoli leaves the visitor wanting.
  • Idiosyncratic and brilliant, the best gallery in Milan.
  • We enjoyed our time viewing the art collection in this family home-turned museum.
  • Very good museum, nice collection. useful for children older than 8.
