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.

  • The House is very beautiful, full of paintings and objects. Audio guide not included (1 €). Wardrobe included

  • A gem Museum less known than the Brera Museum but it is worth a visit, a few masterpieces of Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Mantegna, Bellini, porcelain collection, clock... and a very nice temporary exhibition of jewelry created by great silversmiths of the twentieth century and worn by celebrities of world cinema!

  • There are places to visit, which for reasons of time are left for last, for me it was the case for this Museum, whenever I came to Milan, I always had something else to visit. Today was different, and we are in Milan to visit the Poldi Pezzoli. A beautiful peno Centre just a few steps from the Duomo, the accommodation a surprise, paintings by Botticelli, Raphael, Piero dalla Francesca, Mantegna; original furnishings, jewelry exhibition, the exhibition of watches, the studiolo Dante; feast for the eyes. Finally I recovered my lack.

  • 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.
