  • This magnificent place was us a half block from the hotel, and was a success, visit it, since there are not only writings and ancient books if not it also has paintings and replicas of the artists most large. Very good

  • 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.
