  • What you don't expect from Milan, but instead is a destination for many foreign tourists who know more and better than what we can offer. Another excellence that makes the city of Milan, the most visited of Italy (2016) by tourists. Worth visiting

  • Caravaggio's fruit for Federico Borromeo alone is worth the ticket but the final library with the original of the Atlantic code by Lorenzo Da Vinci a real gift. Museum not to be missed!

  • 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.
  • Great artwork (e.g. Brueghel, Bril) and Leonardo's sketches and "The portrait of the musician "as highlight. Love the "maze-like" tour through the museum.
  • Nice place you should visit on your stay in milano. The building its selfe is very impressive. The cellar underneath was not like what i expected for the extra money we payed.
  • Got in as a student *ahem* so the reduced cost was nice - everything in Italy is basically €10, from tourist sites to a course at a restaurant, or aperitivo... So the half price was nice. If you love classic Italian art this might be the perfect destination for you - a few notable pieces, and lots of less familiar works to me, the uncultured art college dropout. It feels good to see these things - helps the illusion of culture I try to create.
