  • There is a lot to see in Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. I recommend to visit with audioguide (there is English and Italian audio version with text displayed, costs 3€), which gives you some interesting insigh...  more »
  • From the outside you do not imagine the halls, lounges and richness of the works collected. A gem with beautiful paintings, statues, ancient books etc. is definitely worth a visit that fills your mind and pleases the eye.

  • This place is truly beautiful. The museum has a lot of worthy artworks and the library looks magnificent specially with the exhibition of Leonardo’s Codex Atlanticus.
  • I didnt really want to leave the museum. The renaissance paintings especially portraits are just mind blowing. You will get to see leonardo da vinci's portrait of a musician and his brilliant notes. Yeah strictly no photos allowed, even without flash.
  • Really liked the art and the building. As student the entrance was €11 a bit expensive and therefore I was doubting to visit it. But it was worth it, i spend more than an hour because there was much to see and I liked the atmosphere. Many paintings from good artists and also some cool objects and sculptures. No pictures allowed but I recommend!
  • Great place to visite when you're near D'uomo of Milan
  • Excellent museum of medieval and Renaissance fine arts. Alas, visitors are not allowed to take even non commercial photo without flash light. So, no visits anymore unless rules will be changed.
