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.

The museum features a great collection of paintings and furniture from the 16th century until the 19th century, packed closely together room after room. Still I had expected a little more given the price (and deceitfully long facade of the building).

There is a beautiful collection of clocks from the 18th / 19th century which in and on itself is almost worth the visit.

Not all texts inside are translated in English and I'm not entirely sure if there's an audio guide present - there were some indications inside but at the entrance there are no signs, nor were we offered any. The museum shop is very expensive.

I am not so much an art fan but this museum was great. A glimpse at the architecture and a wide variety of displays. Well worth a visit.

There is something particularly attractive in museums such as this which contain the personal collection of an individual or a family. This is fascinating, having all sorts of treasures in art as well as lace, glass, ceramics and ivories as well as jewels. Not to be missed, especially if you are in Milan ion a Monday when almost all other galleries are closed..

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.
