I really enjoyed this small museum, which is a converted house. Not very touristy, so it is a nice detour from the busy crowds of Milan. Make sure to use the free Audio guide. The audio guide was one of the best I've used in...More

It's an old house converted in a museum. In the very center of Milano, is very well preserved. Definively worths a visit.

No complaints. Enjoyed the relaxation of walking through this museum on a Saturday afternoon. It was not crowded so you can take your time and just relax. The armory room was something different.

Often overlooked, the collection is fantastic and the building of great interest. Also, during the several visits we have made, there has never been much of a crowd and so you can see everything virtually uninterrupted.

This small, private museum well deserves its good TA ratings. It is housed in a former private mansion. For that reason, even many of the floors, ceilings, staircases, patios, etc are worth seeing. There is an excellent small collection of Renaissance through early 18th century...More

This museum holds many different collections from art work to armor. I was taken by the collection of time pieces and navigational pieces that were made out of ivory/bone. The small chapel with painted ceiling and stained glass is beautiful. There is something for everyone...More

Museo Poldi Pezzoli is a wonderful private museum in a large mansion. There is a nice collection of medieval armor and a small collection of excellent Italian paintings. If you are in Milan on Monday, you can buy a bargain ticket to visit this museum...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
