The private collection showcases artwork from Northern Italian and Flemish masters. Glassworks, ceramics, jewelry, and weaponry also grace the well-appointed rooms.

  • I was passed countless times in front of that door, the opportunity to enter is + was the invitation to visit the exhibition of the jewel. Nice view, but surprisingly the small private museum full of wonderful works. Mercy news.

  • To do. Beautiful paintings (Portrait of a young woman by Piero del Pollaiolo, that one can come to admire all the finesse of the portrait) and pretty sculptures (Trust in God of Lorenzo Bartolini). See the very nice studio private of Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli.

  • Located close to the monumental metro station, this museum remains in the apartments of a renowned former Italian. Audio guides are expensive (€1) and goods the visit is informative and constructive Museum very nice to share the architecture have buildings.

  • 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.
