  • Free on the first Sunday of the Month This is the best art collection we get to see in Milan, although it is predominantly religious with untold numbers paintings of Madonna and child there are some great and significant pieces of art. It is well worth the queue to get in and do get a map to help guide you through, this will also point out the significant works of art in the different rooms. My only other advice would be to use the seats when available, there is a lot to see here and a sit down to take it in every now and again is highly recommended. Add this to your list of things to see in Milan it is worth it especially when you get a free visit on the first Sunday of the month.
  • This is a great museum to spend an hour or 2. Some great masterpieces can be seen here. It also wasn't really crowded, so plenty of room to enjoy the paintings. I also liked that they provided some chairs in some rooms so you could enjoy the paintings while sitting down.
  • Simply amazing. We went on a Tuesday afternoon, which is lessor known but MILAN HAS FREE MUSEUM ADMISSIONS on Tuesday afternoons. This is the best museum in my taste as it showed us art and sculpture from all ages. Following seeing some of the most famous art in existence we entered into the Beautiful Botanical Garden 😍
  • Well worth the 10 euros. Plenty of beautiful and famous world but you don't need more than 2 hours to see everything as this museum isn't even half the size of the Met, British Museum, or Louvre. Will definitely go back.
  • Fantastic experience, amazing exhibitions and really good atmosphere. The chilled and fresh air makes this one of the best museums I've visited in Milan. Use Cityguru card to skip the line!
