This palace was owned by 2 brothers, both passionate about all things Renaissance. They each had an apartment within the house, and they filled - even over-filled - all the rooms with a collection of paintings, armour, furniture, tapestries. Some were genuine, but most were very good copipes/pastiches by talented contemporary artists and artisans. It makes for a somewhat overwrought... More

This is a little gem amongst the museums of Milan. We did not know that they only open at 1pm so when we arrived at 11 am they were closed. So glad we decided to do something else first and then go back in the afternoon. The whole place is stunning and we can highly recommend it.

I went there especially since I had read it had one of the best museum shops in Milan. It does not have a museum shop. The guides were very warm and attentive, nevertheless. BTW, the best museum shop I have been in is the Prado in Madrid.

This museum is exactly what I would think of a hidden pearl. Such a beauty these brothers put into their house I didn't know where to look at. They had good taste and eye for detail so everything fits together. Wonderful!

Only open in the afternoons but do give concessions to seniors. Staff very helpful but found it a bit dour. Skulls were interesting.

The Bagatti Valsecchi Museum is quite good and it has period furniture owned by the Brothers Bagatti Valsecchi. There is plenty of good art, but much of the art is not identified by artist or title. There is a collection of armor too.

Most house museums I've seen tend to be part of the Gilded Age in the US, and a copy of, what, the 1700s-1800s in Europe? This is the first house museum I've seen that's a Renaissance one, and it was totally fascinating. It's not an original - the owners were two brothers who were really into the Renaissance and so...

not so much a museum just a great collection of stuff in a great building. We did 3 great houses (this plus Villa Necchi Campiglio & Museo Poldi Pezzoli) for 15E with 'case museo di milano' card (museo boschi di Stefano also included in price). Very good audio guide. If you like art deco visit the Villa Necchi as well.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
