  • Beautiful location, this private house transformed already in 19° century into a Museum contains lots of masterpieces of the Italian Art (Tiepolo, Piero della Francesca, Canaletto, Hayez...) and inter...  more »
  • After a discussion on what to do on the weekend with my colleagues, I was asked this museum that I didn't know. Never was more apt since I was ecstatic. The Museum starts with a weapons room unique in its kind, and it continues showing the immense collection and passion of the Poli Theater for art. From fabrics to lace through the pottery, paintings and beautiful watches. The cost for a full-price ticket is €10 but, if you are a student, you have the discount of €5.50. Pros: highly varied collection and artistically, it's impossible not to be fascinated, affordable cons: for now I can not find

  • Extraordinary collection, well organized and thoroughly described in both Italian and English. Set aside at least two hours to enjoy the artworks.
  • 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!!!
  • If you re interested in Italian culture, artworks and history this is a must.
  • 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.
