It's a small museum but full of very interesting artworks. Leonardo, Buddha and African culture. They have also a lab with students. Cool !! It's located in the city center close to the Castel. We got 40% discount on ticket entrance with a city pass called Visitalia Tourist Card. Definitely a nice experience..strongly reccomended!!! We met also the owner Peter... More

We stumbled on this beauty and spent a couple of hours learning about authenticity in arts and antiques. The layout is very intimate and welcoming however it might not be for everyone as it is a teaching museum. You can interact with the collection and are encouraged to examine the exhibits some of which are quite unique and highlight the... More

A great experience. Offers the visitor the opportunity to understand how to recognise fake from original antiques using simple techniques. Certainly worth a visit. One of the few museums open on a Monday.

Based on the description and the reviews, I thought this would be a fun place to go. I think some folks might like it but here is a description so you can be informed about the content. It is 8 Euros and about ten small rooms. The main display is perhaps 7 rooms on the topic of fakes and forgeries... More

We took a group of children ages 7 through 13 to this small museum and each one had a great time. The museum focuses on how to distinguish between true artworks and fakes. The interactive exhibits were engrossing and accessible to all age groups, even the adults wanted to try out the displays. In all, a great way to spend... More

Really dissapointing museum. There was supposed to be a room with Leonardo da Vinci but it was unaccessable for some reason, and there was no discount because of it. The other rooms were just filled with potsherds and few buddistic statues. Only half of the items had english descriptions. The museum was also really small, not worth 8 euros at... More

The theme of this museum is very unusual - the understanding and practice of how one can tell whether an object is genuine or a fake! There were also two other exhibitions, one on Buddist art, and the other da Vinci's "rules of art". The main theme was covered by a series of rooms that displayed genuine and fake items,... More

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera
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 admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
