Have You Visited Any Of These Top Galleries And Museums Before?
GALLERIA CARLA SOZZANI
The gallery is housed in a former industrial structure that is typical of Milanese design. Galleria Carla Sozzani has established itself as one of Italy’s most important photographic galleries since its inception. Over 200 exhibitions have been held in the presence of well-known photographers, many of whom have never presented their work in Italy before: Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Bert Stern, Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi, David Bailey, Hiro, and David LaChapelle, to name a few.
Because they highlight issues of great social importance (for example, Regina José Galindo’s 2014 “Estoy Viva” show addressed the female condition, while the 2013 “Rise and Fall of Apartheid” exhibition gave insight into life before, during, and after apartheid), PAC’s exhibitions are frequently a source of interest and debate in Milan.
MUSEO DEL NOVECENTO
The Museo del Novecento was founded on December 6, 2010, with the objective of increasing public awareness of 20th-century art and providing a more comprehensive view of the collections that Milan has accumulated over time. Aside from its core exhibition activity, the Museum is involved in the protection, analysis, and promotion of Italian cultural and artistic heritage from the twentieth century, with the ultimate goal of reaching a larger audience.

Hangar Bicocca is a great place to visit if you enjoy art, design, and getting away from the city. Hangar Bicocca attracts artsy people with its cutting-edge exhibitions and workshops, which are housed in a converted industrial structure in an up-and-coming region outside of the city center. This location is known for its site-specific installations (akin to those at the Tate Modern in London), which have included huge balloons and -30°C rooms over the years.
The Milan City Council began measures in 1990 to purchase the ancient Ansaldo manufacturing plant at Porta Genova and use it for cultural activities, as part of its ongoing attempts to preserve the memory of the economic and social processes that have defined the city’s identity. The abandoned factories have been transformed into studios, workshops, and new creative spaces, serving as true industrial archaeological monuments.
LEONARDO DAVINCI SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY MUSEUM
Following your visit to the Santa Maria Delle Grazie to witness DaVinci’s Last Supper, head to the Museo Nazionale Della Scienza e Della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci to see more of his original sketches and various models of his scientific breakthroughs. It also contains interactive labs, a submarine exhibit, and a science section for young children.
