Visited with children for about an hour right before closing. No crowds. Exquisite collection in a beautiful old mansion that used to belong to the collector.

The original collection was owned by a prominent Milanese, who willed it (along with his home now housing it) to the Brera foundation at the end of the 19th century. There is lots to see, including some lovely Botticelli and Bellini. Large ceramics collection. House...More

The Museo Poldi Pezzoli is a somewhat hidden gem in the streets of Milan ... a priceless and very personal collection of a private person. It is actually a fairly large museum which warrants a few hours at least. Currently there is also a contemporary...More

Principally early Renaissance works including a number from Tuscany. This differentiates it from the Brera and Ambrosiana. These are of very high quality, e.g. Tura, Crivelli, Bellini, Botticelli, etc. They are in the original palazzo and the layout of paintings and other artworks has to...More

This private and eclectic collection, house in a grand old demure, was apparently bombed and partially destroyed during World War II, and meticulously restored. Many wonderful paintings, a very elaborate armor collection, an elaborate and fascinating time piece collection, compasses, and various baubles. Walked in...More
