  • The Museum is beautifully structured and includes beautiful sculptures and paintings, as well as a library of very old books, which is also impressive. The building is quite old, the floor creaks pretty. In a bookshop in the Museum, there are art prints and other souvenirs. The entry in the amount of € 10 per person is but slightly too high.

  • This is only a short walking distance from the Duomo, yet I didn't find it easily. The Milanese are not hot on signs to important places. We pre-booked which wasn't necessary. The collection is arrang...  more »
  • Recommend a visit especially for lovers of Italian painting of the ' 500 and ' 600 and Flemish. To honor the library with the Atlantic Codex by Leonardo and the painting "the musician" by Leonardo. Rolling in the library are exposed paintings of famous pittoro, in this days ol Caravaggio with Jerome. Take at least an hour and a half for the visit.

  • 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.
