If you enjoy being steeped in historical locations, you will find this a treasure. There is a small museum set up as part of the opera house. We visited the museum and saw a video and costume exhibit about Maria Callas and learned about other...More

The music, the set pieces, the atmosphere, the architecture make La Scala a great way to spend an evening. You don't have to be an opera fan to enjoy it.

La Scala Opera is one of the famous opera in the world. For this reason people expect some impressive building. I also expect this. Building is not special but museum is great. If you come only to see building you will be disappointed.

We really enjoyed the museum, including the Maria Callas section and opera rehearsals at the theater.

If you can't make it to la Scala for an opera, visit its attending museum: it's real worth it. You'll get a peek at the heart of the venue (really beautiful) and the rest of the museum will tell you all you need to know...More

While the building itself is interesting it is the quality of the music produced that is amazing. This is the start of a whole century of theater design.

We were thrilled to last last make it to La Scala. It is not overwhelmingly big. The people here take their music seriously and they dressed to show it. The acoustics were grand.

This by all accounts is the best opera house in the world. I heard Verdi's Simon Boccanegra and it was over the top good. No standing ovation from the best tenor I had ever heard. What must it take in Milan to get one?!!!
