National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo Da Vinci
We are kicking off the list with an iconic museum! In this museum, you’ll be able to see Da Vinci’s original drawings and numerous models of his scientific innovations and experiments. It’s a great place to get to know more of Leonardo Da Vinci’s work!
Fondazione Prada is a fairly recent museum. Having opened in 2015, it’s home to a contemporary art collection you can’t miss. Including both temporary and permanent exhibits, the central piece of the museum is The Haunted House, a four-story building covered with gold leaf and including artworks by Louise Bourgeois.
Museum of Ancient Art
Museo d’Arte Antica, as the locals would call it, has a great collection from several periods of history, from the late antiquity to the Mediaeval and Renaissance periods. There is also a room designed and frescoed by Leonardo da Vinci.
Another recent museum in the city! MUDEC is dedicated to arts and cultures from all over the globe. There as a piece of every corner of the world, from Japan to West Africa, the visitors will be amazed by the rich culture in this place.
Museo del Novecento
Located right next to the Duomo, this museum is dedicated to 20th-century art. The organization of the museum is wonderful, with sections dedicated to each art movement of the period of time. It’s also located in a building full of history, it is where Mussolini used to address the Milan crowds.
