  • The principal hall of the museum seems the one in Hobbit movie who dragon comes burn in hot liquid gold. Huge, high and beautiful.
  • Great building and walls
  • Stunning
  • The musical instrument Museum is located in the Castello Sforzesco and is one of the museums that are located in this place. As its name says, here you will find various musical instruments from various periods. Deserves to be seen, although to me it seems more suitable for children, since they are organized events dedicated to them
