  • I recommend it to anyone wanting their vision of art and of a fascinating place. with a library that should not be missed.

  • The Gallery is situated in the Centre of Milan and rich in works of great depth. Worth going in religious silence. Simple and non-dispersive path with great lighting. I recommend also observed the halls and the structure of the picture gallery.

  • Great place to visit. Oldest library and Leonardo's drawings together with many valuable paintings makes extremely special feeling when visiting. You can taste the history.

  • Nice museum. Not suitable for kids though they are allowed. Remember to take the audio headset before you start otherwise you won't be able to understand anything about the paints and statues. The room for Leonardo is small and the last supper paint is not the real one, but you will see" the musician " among other ones.
  • The best library in Milan. You can find the handwriting of Leonardo Da Vinci ( Codex Atlanticus) and the only picture he painted with a male subject.
  • Fantastic art work in a really beautiful setting. The building is a maze (in a really good way) which is an adventure to navigate. The book shop is a bit small with few non-italian language options but if you dig there are things to be found. Probably not a great place for young kids as it is very quiet inside.
  • Many beautiful paintings in an artistic setting. It's a pity they don't allow taking photos inside.
  • Exquisite art collection in a beautiful setting.
