“Beautiful! Definitely a Milan must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

I think there isn't a similar place in the world! Renaissance styled residence built in the XIX century, located at the heart of Milan's fashion district it has an amazing art and furniture collection, the mansion had been inhabited until 1975 so every corner is in pristine conditions. It also has a very complete audio-guide system (included in the ticket fee). Staff are extremely friendly as most of them are volunteers. I would recommend people to buy the "Case museo" card for €15.00 in order to be able to visit other 4 museums for a better price. http://www.casemuseomilano.it/en/

“Remarkable time capsule”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This well preserved sixteenth century mansion with its treasures of renaissance art is well worth a visit when you tire of the modern treasures in Via Montenapoleone nearby. The original architecture, grand staircases, furnishings and art are fascinating, and ably explained in many languages by the helpful guides.

“Bagatti Valsecchi Museum – A Glimpse into the History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

This mansion belongs to a noble family and is located in the center of Milan’s fashion district. I have visited this place twice and have always found it amazing. This place has been decorated in a rich manner, which might seem gloomy to some. But it is worth a visit for some good photographs.

“get intimate with a noble family of the 19s”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This is my favourite place to visit in Milan. It is nothing like a museum. You'll get amazed by the collection of painting and medieval weapons that these brothers got to put together. These two got their home made in the late medieval style as it was the fashion in the 19s Milan

“Interesting but Depressing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

This home of an aristocratic family is right in the center of the fashion district. The living quarters have been restored and illustrate how rich Milanese lived around 1900 (it was occupied by descendants until 1975).

Though richly decorated, all the rooms were without exception very dark and almost sunless. Dark wood, dark wallpaper, and dark stone. It was gloomy walking through, and I could readily picture the occupants slowly decaying, leading empty lives in this colorless environment, just out of reach of the real world outside. This is the sort of house that Gothic horror movies are set in.

As a stately home, the Bagatti Valsecchi (this was their double-barreled family name) Museum is a far cry from Rome's Doria Pamphilj, which is palatial on a much grander scale, and includes many remarkable oils and sculptures to boot.

Not recommended for the average tourist, even if like me you enjoy stately homes.
