Poldi Pezzoli Museum (Museo Poldi Pezzoli) Tours

Poldi Pezzoli Museum (Museo Poldi Pezzoli)
Housed in the 17th-century palace that was once the Pezzoli family residence, this house-museum contains one of Milan's most prestigious collections. It’s a treasure trove of paintings by Botticelli, Bellini, and Mantegna, as well as decorative art, armor, and ancient artifacts accrued by Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli in the 19th century.

The Basics
At just 24 years old, Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli inherited his family’s fortune and their passion for collecting. He spent the remainder of his life treasure hunting his way through Europe, amassing an impressive collection of Renaissance paintings and other art and artifacts, and arranging them in his apartments by theme. Today, you can stroll the sumptuous palace to admire everything from ancient vases to lace—an eclectic hodgepodge of wonders that reflect the disparate tastes of the collector himself.

The Poldi Pezzoli Museum (Museo Poldi Pezzoli) is among the most important cultural highlights in Milan, so purchase tickets in advance to avoid the line at the ticket office. The museum is located a short walk from top attractions such as Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano) and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and a visit can easily be paired with a Milan walking tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
