Last hour's entry is free here, and an hour is just enough to enjoy the collection. There is a nice park behind the building, in addition to the public gardens across the street. Sculptures on the ground floor, paintings as you move up. Definitely worth...More

This gallery is worth visiting. It is situated opposite a delightful public garden (Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli). We wanted to see the Grassi Collection (a collection of artworks gathered by entrepeneur Carlo Grassi. A very unusual body of work with some surprizes including a stunning...More

Maybe this museum/galleria does not really deserve 5 star rating but as it is free during the last hour of opening, I give it 5. So, yes, I visited the museum during the last hour and this was really enough time to see it. Of...More

We enjoyed viewing both the sculpture exhibit and the permanent collection. A charming volunteer from the Touring Club of Italy provided valuable information and recommendations about some of the other sites in Milan which the organization assists.

During our trip, we visited the gallery for free after 4:30PM. Inside, we discovered some lovely pieces and a nice structure. On the top level lies the modern art, many of which we loved and just had to jot down to look up later. This...More

The palace that houses the exhibition is really amazing and worth to be seen itself. Do not be confused by the name as it holds the collection of mostly 19th century art. There are no world famous masterpieces, but the art is magnificent anyway. The...More

As others have commented, the name of this gallery is misleading. The paintings are mainly from the 19th century and by less well-known artists, so don't turn up expecting a grand display of Futurist works. The only part I found interesting was the small collection...More

Perhaps Modern is a relative term but too much here was mid-late 19th century. What they had from the early 20th was rather poor. Bequests from two collectors indicated that they had to a degree been duped by their dealers, the big name pieces did...More

The building is a preserved castle or mansion and as such, it is not an ideal venue for an art museum. The lighting and the floors and the steps and the sound control are not the best. Those at the desk collecting the admission charge...More

The 'Modern Art' turned out not to be so modern. Nothing after the early 20th century. The grand first floor is entirely devoted to mostly competent but very dull 19th century local artists. We were so bored that we decided to give the second floor...More

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
