Excellent visit. The building itself is worth the trip because it is surely one of the most beautiful in Milan. Interesting collection of paintings. In short, we kept very good memories of this pinacoteca. I recommend it!

I enjoy it every part of it! Very interesting,maybe can be more lights open where the description is writing! Nice place to visit while are you in Milan

Great. Particularly as there are so few good museums and art galleries in Milan. This is definitely worth a visit.

the museum has a large collection of paintings, however the majority is about the religious themes.
