A little way off centre and close to Palestro metro, this is a very pleasant gallery with a nice collection principally spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. When I went there was a small temporary exhibition of paintings and drawings by Boldini (a...More

The building itself is very charming and there is a nice cafe in the court yard. Apparantly Napoleon loved here while in Milan. As for the art on display: there are quite a few good pieces. I would especially pay attention to some of the...More

Quite a small gallery but was worthy to go. For my great surprise it was free on Tuesdays after 2pm. Nevertheless, the normal price was not bad either: adults 5€, students and elderly 3€, and children under 18 for free. Unexceptionally friendly staff.

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

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
