Good atmosphere, visited the Fornasetti retrospective which was outstanding. The other exhibitions were good and the permeant Design Museum is worth a visit

“always something worth seeing”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

If you just pop in there is always something worth seeing, the permanent contemporary collection anchor for the temporary shows and outdoor play area and exhibits during the summer. Even the bar has sensational designs (nb the hollow coffee spoon and the video tables) .. The space often organizes fab labs for young kids , like play in a steel drum band or bread making etc
Brilliant address for families

“Expected More about Design”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Cold & rainy day and indoors was our option. €10 entry fee entitled access to museum & current exhibitions. The Italian Design section left me feeling flat & disappointed - I was expecting something more, other than flashing lights & odd displays. The exhibitions displaying photography by Nicollo Biddau & art by Piero Fornasetti were excellent & made the visit seem worthwhile.

“Informative, engaging & well worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

Visited this museum on a wet & snowy afternoon in milan. 10EUR entry gets you access to all the exhibitions on and it was one of the highlights of the trip for me.
Fantastic exhibits including made in slums by mathare-nairobi, piero fornasetti, massimo Minni and several other high profile photography & design names.
Easy way to spend 2-3 hours. And the walk through the castle and park en route to the museum is just delightful.

“Informative for beginners”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

If you're interested in Design, and architecture and you don't know much about them, let Triennale to show you the way.

I saw some average and bad reviews about this museum, yet still decided to go to check it out by myself.
The entrance fee was 10€ including three exhibitions. I have to say my favorite one was a free exhibition about Rohe award for Europe architecture, and I also enjoyed very much of the main exhibition.
The main one uses innovative display to introduce the great Italian designers and marked their achievements. (If the introduction could be more detailed will be even better)

If you like design but don't know much about it, this will be a great choice!
Yet the only drawback was that I wanted to buy some related books but there're few choices.
