  • After a long line as the cloister facing the inner courtyard, we were able to visit the art gallery, you say? wonderful works ... Not to be missed, to avoid the queue could be useful to choose days uncrowded

  • Unexpected discovery, although it's all over the tourist sites and books. To be clear, we only saw the library from the Pinacoteca per se, but we toured the building, which is actually an art school, ...  more »
  • Presents a Rico collection of works very fine. The architecture of the building is also fantastic. I really enjoyed.

  • Incredible collection. It was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon here. Usually after about 30 crucifixion scenes in most museums I want to move on, but the way this collection was laid out and explained was marvelous. The plaques were so informative and many had a second plaque with either descriptions by other artists/art critics or things to look for in the paintings. There were so many different takes on the birth of Christ, crucifixion, etc that were incredibly moving even for someone like myself who is not religious. The museum is laid out beautifully. We were there for almost three hours and it felt like the time flew by.
  • Large collection of arts across the different decades. Very impressive display and there are many more in storage as they rotate them due to lack of space for display. Place was a bit understated from the outside and art displays were upstairs. Ticketing staff could have been more informative for non Italian speakers and it's also strange that they told me to keep my duffle bag in locker when I am about to finish the viewing at the end of the gallery.
  • Some great reproductions of statues and monuments. Love the wide stairs and the view from the top down to the square. They also hold classes here for Italian language. If you like to see Milanese architecture, you won't be disappointed by visiting.
  • My best experience in a gallery. Pinacoteca Brera is not too huge like louvre in Paris. I spent two hours enjoying the paintings without fatigue.
  • I loved the collection, you can enjoy art pieces from different periods. Found one painting of Rubens (The Last Supper), one of Caravaggio. Typically you will spend there 1h or more. 1st Sunday of the month is Free of charge! I recommend also to visit the souvenir shop.
