  • A really beautiful place, that leaves you speechless. Easy to reach and rich in works of art. To visit if you are in Milan.

  • Excellent collection of paintings in perfect condition for the most part. All are with identification and many details are explained. Admission is 10 euros and you can visit for free the Thursday of November

  • I had to go the first Sunday of the month, which is free, giving you greater value. The emblematic work of this museum is "The Kiss", there are many medieval paintings of religious nature which are very interesting,

  • Very nice and extensive picture gallery! One could almost compare it to Louver, though not so big. Seeing masterpieces from Caravaggio, Raffaelo and many others Italian painters is a simply Milanese must see. Admission is not so high considering what you see.
  • Building is beautiful and free to walk around and sit in the courtyard. Museum is on second floor. 10 euro entry fee. No signage in English but you can figure it out. It would be helpful to have a map showing where artists are located so you can go directly to specific paintings. There is a tiny room in this maze of galleries which had an El Greco. Also mixed in was a painting by Rembrandt and four by Canaletto all of Venice scattered around the galleries. Saw one Rubens. Never found the Caravaggio. Most of the collection is Italian artists of course. Most of it is religious art. Many massive paintings. Lots of places to sit.
  • I'll admit it without any shame: I'm not really the type of person going crazy for art (especially paintings), and I think it shows. To the point we were approached by a Brera employee who said: "Two options are possible: either you are art critics or you didn't understand. Because it's impossible to walk by these masterpieces like you just did.". He then explained us some paintings and the connections between them, linking even to lesser known pieces located in the same room. I was engaged and enojyed it so much it made me want to go back at the start.
  • Its free and it's beautiful. Great place to take a little break. Wonderful Art & sculptures and please check out the mind blowing library. Harry Potter would be proud :)
  • Great art gallery. The concentration of masterpieces of world known artist is comparable to the most famous art galleries in the world.
