La Triennale Museum Tours

La Triennale Museum
La Triennale Museum explores the history of Italian design, highlighting innovative works in furniture and industrial design, architecture, and decorative arts. Fittingly located in Milan (Italy’s design capital), the museum lies within the Palazzo dell’Arte—a venue originally built for the Triennale decorative arts show.

The Basics
One of the Palazzo dell’Arte’s best-known exhibitions, La Triennale Museum is a fascinating collection of everyday objects made to resemble art, and vice versa. Also in the same building is the Design Library (with thousands of books, magazines, and photographs available for reference) and the Teatro dell'Arte (a performance space for music, theater, and dance). 

The MilanoCard and Milan Pass include free or discounted admission to the museum, along with other city highlights such as La Scala and the Duomo terraces. Many hop-on hop-off city bus tours stop at La Triennale Museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • La Triennale Museum is a must-see for design and architecture fans.
  • A café, a pizzeria, and a restaurant with a Michelin-starred chef are located on-site.
  • The entire museum is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
  • There is free Wi-Fi on-site. 

How to Get There
La Triennale is located in the middle of Parco Sempione, the largest park in central Milan, between Sforzesco Castle (Castello Sforzesco) and the Arch of Peace (Arco della Pace). To get there by public transit, take the red or green metro line to Cadorna or city bus 61 to the Triennale stop.

When to Get There 
The Triennale Museum is one of Milan’s more popular museums, so try to visit first thing in the morning or in the evening (it stays open until 8:30pm). If you happen to be in town during the Triennale event, which occurs every three years, a visit is highly recommended. The next Triennale is in 2019 and runs from March to September.

Design is Everywhere 
From the building’s architecture and the exhibitions on display to the chairs at the café, everything at La Triennale revolves around design. Upon entry, one of the first things visitors see is a suspended bridge with overhead lighting. The on-site Agora Theatre, designed completely in wood from the cedars of Lebanon, hosts design-related events and performances.
