This part of Castello Sforzesco museum has some nice collection of paintings. It does not contain some globally known masterpieces, but it they are worth paying a tribute. In the same rooms, interesting furniture collection is displayed. The entrance is included in the ticket to all the castle museums and it costs 5 eur.

This museum has a nice collection of paintings, especially by Italian artists (Lippi, Canaletto), but there are more impressive collections in Milan, such as at the Pinacoteca di Brera. Entrance is included with all Castello Sforzesco museums, so it is worth a quick tour.

Nice place to visit and is located in the Milan's largest park. There are some interesting art work and monuments to look at.

The castle itself is already breathtaking but inside it hosts several museums that are just as amazing with a vast collection including paintings, furniture expositions, sculpture (among those the last work of Michelangelo), archeology and more. Definitely worth he 5 Euro admittance ticket, you won't regret it. Only plan ahead since this place will easily take you a full day... More

We recommend that you include a visit to Castello Sforzesco in your plans when in Milan. This is a large well maintained castle with a most interesting history. Inside are a number of museums with very rich collections. Most significant for us is the Rondanini Pieta known as Michelangelo's final but unfinished work. The castle is well worth a visit... More

We walked up and at first were confused. You can walk through park of castle including court yard area with reflecting pool for free! Free stuff while traveling always gets me excited! Can pay for admission to museum but we did not. Felt like we saw enough to without entering the actual museum.

In north Italy, you must at least visit this castle as an example of historical events, governance and architecture styles for that time.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
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 rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
