Top ways to experience Pinacoteca Castello Sforzesco and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

The Pinacoteca Castello Sforzesco is an art gallery/museum with the Castello Sforzesco. It holds works by several great masters in various rooms. It's definitely worth your while visiting while at the castle, if for nothing else, just to see great works of art with your own eye.

The castle itself is beautiful. The museum inside is interesting. They shuttle you through in groups so you spend the majority of your time waiting to go into the next room/exhibit. We went after 2pm when it was free of charge and then were eventually “kicked out” because they were closing at 5pm. I’m not sure if this is how they always move people through the museum, but seemed strange.

Nothing remarkable in this museum other than at the very end. The museum of ancient art starts just beyond the ticket counter. There are several very complex and interesting pieces of furniture especially for the time in which they were made.

You will see quite a bit of the old family palace containing armor, furniture, art, and at the very end the unfinished Pieta which is, actually, very interesting. It is unfinished because he died while working on this his 4th version of a Pieta. It is interesting to view how this version is more mature and differs from the famous one that is at the Vatican which he carved in his 20s.

It used to be free to visit the Castello with its gardens and amazing collections. But like so many churches & old palaces & public buildings in Europe you now have to pay an arm & a leg & suffer long lines to get in. If you've never been in the museums, it's worth going at least once.

If you like divinci you will like this castle. There was a movie about Di Vinci. Also there is a moat (no water). Many people were sitting or walking around the grounds.

Lovely paintings, wonderful building. We actually unintentionally went on a free Sunday, and had to wait to get in, but I don't think there is usually a long line.

A lot of history to see here. When we came there was a farming event which kind of took over it but still glad I got to see some of it. Lots of info in the area for free.

The castle itself is already breathtaking but inside it hosts several museums that are just as amazing with a vast collection including paintings, furniture expositions, sculpture (among those the last work of Michelangelo), archeology and more. Definitely worth he 5 Euro admittance ticket, you won't regret it. Only plan ahead since this place will easily take you a full day to explore.
