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

  • It is almost unbelievable, but true: with one ticket I could:-visit the exhibition On Italian gem of the 20th century: more than 100 objects-masterpieces of jewellery-wonderfully presented, accompanied by brief explanatory notes and photographs, introduce the knowledge of the history of 20th century Italian jewellery; -walking in the halls and in the halls of the House of Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli, among the works collected by him (mostly) and from other collectors: beautiful environments in which you can admire masterpieces of painting, sculpture, furniture, jewellery, ceramics, ... of different ages, from different countries, well placed and well lit; -see the models that reconstruct 16 (interesting) scenic designs by Arnaldo Pomodoro: along with several design studies and sketches for costumes (all beautiful), constitute a section of the great retrospective exhibition dedicated to this brilliant artist (N.B. the weapons room, on the ground floor of the Museum, set up in 1998-2000 is another section of this exhibition). In short, a morning rich, very interesting and pleasant at a cost much content; If you then consider that, presenting to the Royal Palace the Poldi Pezzoli, I got a reduction on the cost of the ticket for the retrospective exhibition in the Sala delle Cariatidi, can't that be arcicontenta!

  • Rich collection of paintings, jewellery and much more. In this period, houses a collection of jewels and theatrical scenes. For rich content and location is not to be missed, however the more flock to places of less interest. Visit it and you will not regret it.

  • Beautiful home perfectly preserved and cured in every detail. In fact it is a concentrate of valuable paintings and art. If you want to complete your visit with a touch even more precious, recently opened the exhibition of the jewel. Recommended!

  • 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.
