Such a shame, poor Italy! I'm Italian but I live abroad from decades and it's always painful to come here on holidays and find out that nothing change, nothing improves. The museum could potentially be an interesting one, as the collections are not bad, but...More

This museum is located very close to a park & an art museum. So we were able to visit all three places on the same day. I would definitely recommend visiting this museum. Entry to this museum is covered by the Tourist Museum card.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to

Yes, most of the exhibits are in English and Italian but there’s some exhibits that didn’t have English translation.
