  • Nice beautiful works and including the impressive Armory visit. Flat for the caretaker very insisting that didn't have us in the right and who was following us to track in each of the parts under the pretext, certainly, that we were two young people who did not speak Italian.

  • The Museum is centrally located and should be obligatory x anyone visiting Milan, looking for true works of art. Its highlight is certainly the art gallery, located on the 1st floor. The ticket is priced at €10 and allows you to also visit the Armory and the Hall of carpets on the ground floor. Pollaiolo, Pinturicchio, Raphael, Botticelli, Bellini, Carpaccio, Mantegna, Perugino and many others are part of truly magnificent collection that you visit once climbed the splendid marble staircase. Also the exhibition and the rooms themselves are truly magnificent furniture, statues, walls, furniture, chandeliers ... Everything is extremely meticulous attention to details with style and sophistication really top notch. Along with Brera and at the Ambrosiana, it's the best collection of paintings from the ' 300 forward offering Milan. Not to be missed!

  • I was with family in this wonderful House Museum. Just over 5 minutes ' walk from the Cathedral we had an instant impression provided by the courtesy of the staff. I also recommend the audio guide that costs 1 euro allows also to non-art expert like us to appreciate the "pieces" exposed. In addition to the gallery I would highly recommend the collection of armor and weapons collected initially by Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli. The atmosphere is exposure have been designed and created by tomato. Also notable is the collection of watches. I note with satisfaction the attention that lend the room attendants, accustomed to seeing them in other museums tediously perched on their chairs. I asked if there were others but only two bathrooms (plus one for the disabled) are maybe a few especially if one of them is out of service.

  • Beautiful privat collection with very interesting art pieces. The well known picture of Martin Luther and his friend is here. Some surprisingly beautiful jewels. Nice place to visit. Friendly and professional staff. A perle of my Milan tour.💖
  • This is one of those hidden treasures of the city, an incredible art collection located on Via Manzoni, near the Teatro alla Scala. The museum was established at the end of the 18th century and was originally the residence of Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli, an avid art collector. Beside the paintings, including several masterpieces, there is an unusual collection of mechanical and solar time-pieces and many interesting artifacts including the “Persian hunting carpet”. Don’t miss this incredible collection! This very well hidden gem is worth a trip to Milan! you'll find extremely rare armours, fine clocks, unique paintings by the most famous Italian artists, from Mantegna to Botticelli! You'll admire fine samples of furniture and old rugs, extremely refined sculptures and the whole house is a grand example of the top Italian culture! And being not crowded allows you to appreciate it even more. My daughter and I stayed for almost 4 hours, with a lunch break (we could leave and re-enter the building) and enjoyed very minute of it! Tip of the place: get the audio guide, it's only 1,5 euros and surely worth it!!!
  • Excellent private museum boasting excellent collections of fine arts, ancient and medieval arms and armor. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • Great art collection from paintings to clocks. A bit expensive 15€ but must see
  • One of the oldest museum in Milan established 1881. Close to La Scala through via Manzoni. Mantegna, Bellini, Botticelli are some of many artists shown in the gallery. When inside you'll find an ancient world.
