Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan

4.5
#3 of 74 in Museums in Milan
Pinacoteca di Brera sits above a prestigious art school in a former monastery. As you wander from room to room, you'll be traveling to different centuries and art movements, with a focus on Italian religious art. Admire paintings by Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titan. Pick up an audio guide to learn more. Bring as little as possible with you; this gallery has no coat check. Pinacoteca di Brera is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Milan Edition.

    The pinacoteca houses a wonderful collection, but they lack absolutely tools for mediation for those visiting the Museum with children

    It is a pity that his reputation is not at the height of its quality. If you like painting minimally, visit it is the best thing you can do in this city

  • 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!

Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.
