  • only sacred art in the collection, not worth it. None of the great Italian painters is on display in the gallery.  more »
  • Rain non stop on Milan, the day will be dedicated to museums. We started with the Brera Gallery. The place is beautiful and the gallery very well arranged. You walk from room to room the magnificent works that are exhibited there. In addition, there was no one, the dream.

  • Tour in Milan with a visit to the Pinacoteca: done! My daughter and I had an immense pleasure in walking through the halls that house some of the best-known masterpieces in the art world. In the meantime we have given a first look but it will be our pleasure to return and deepen the vision of these magnificent works made by Mantegna, Bellini, Caravaggio, Piero della Francesca, Francesco Hayez and many others. Thank you!

  • I enjoyed the collection, but the ticket seller was incredibly rude. Despite it saying that EU teachers in arts (INCLUDING literature) were permitted free entry, she did not accept my Dutch university ID. I told her that literature was listed in the subjects on the board behind me and she simply ignored me. This honestly colored my visit, and I was left unable to enjoy the art as much as I would have liked.
  • Definitely get the audio guide and be prepared with a proximity card for your payment as for some odd reason they did not have the capability of accepting the usual chip card. Fortunately, Google Pay worked.Great museum, but really unfriendly staff at the ticket desk. One particular woman was very difficult to deal with. I enjoyed the collection - not too large, but probably wouldn't return.
  • Great museum, but really unfriendly staff at the ticket desk. One particular woman was very difficult to deal with. I enjoyed the collection - not too large, but probably wouldn't return. Two hours here in this large art museum that is well organized and contains not just Italian art but all sorts of classic European art from older to newer though not quite modern. Expect at least two hours here.
  • Superb collection of Italian art (especially Renaissance period). You will find many monumental paintings and a beautiful sculpture of Napoleon. Go preferably in the morning, for my part it was very calm. I strongly recommend that you equip an audioguide for 5 euros to obtain additional information.
  • Nice museum with great musical performances on site that enhanced the art. A large percentage of the art is religious (church altar panels, holy family etc.) in nature so it is a bit r e redundant at times, but the pieces that are not are wonderful and unique. Visible conservation area is also interesting.qq
