    Except armory and luxurious interiors museum posses stunning collection of paintings painted by the old masters of renaissance. There is probably the largest collection of Giovanni Bellini’s paintings in that museum.

    Armory of Poldi Pezzoli

    by Oleg_D. Updated May 30, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Museum of Poldi Pezzoli has excellent collection of arms and armor. Unfortunately only small part of artifacts put on permanent display. Exhibition itself is no well organized. There are no any captions and explanatory texts. Suits of armor and weapon just mixed together. To explain that situation let me quote one scientists and researcher of medieval arms and armor:
    “The setting is an outrageous modern installation by the famous Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro (funny thing ... in Italian pomodoro means tomato).
    His ego is obviously so enormous that he relegated the collection as a marginal decoration of the room.
    Just a single room, yes you have understood!
    3/4 of the collection is in the warehouse and not accessible to the public.
    The lighting designer should have been blind since you can not see anything at all.
    One of the best tilting suit has been fixed 3 meters high on the back of the room wall and you can not see it, since the museum does not provide telescopes!
    It has been a 360 degrees disappointment.
    Visitor should ask for a €8 refund while leaving the Museum Poldi Pezzoli”.
    And anyway museum and its armory are worth to visit and spend time there!

    Interiors of that museum are luxurious and deserve to be the decoration of the royal palace.

    Excellent Fine Arts Museum!

    by Oleg_D. Written May 29, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ticket costs nine euros and this is the fair price to visit that storage of master pieces. Museum has a lot of paintings and sculpture, pieces of decorative art starting from XIV-th and trough XIX century. I believe museum posses one of the biggest collection of Giovanni Bellini (1430/33-1516). There is excellent armory at the ground floor. Although it is not organized well it is still very interesting. So, it was one and half of the hour of pleasure. This private museum allows visitors to take non commercial pictures without flash light and tripod.

    Admission
    Adults € 9,00
    Seniors and Students (11-18 years old and over 60) € 6,00

    On Via Manzoni, at number 12, is the Poldi-Pezzoli Museum, displaying the wonderful art collection of Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli opened to the benefit of the general public in 1881.

    The building was originally the home of Gian Giacomo Poldi-Pezzoli and although it was seriously damaged during the war, in 1943, the museum was quickly restored.

    Among the numerous painting here are displayed the Madonna and Child by Andrea Mantegna, the Lament over the Dead of Christ by Giovanni Bellini, the Madonna and Child and Lament over the Dead of Christ two painting by Sandro Botticelli or the Portrait of a young woman a masterpiece by Antonio Pollaiolo.

    The museum is also housing a collection of firearms, halberds, swords, tapestries, Persian carpets and fragments of Coptic textiles.

    Situated in north-east Milan, the Museo Poldi-Pezzoli is a private museum that was established by Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli and opened to the public in 1881. The building itself is a good example of a late 19th-century aristocratic residence in Milan and both the exterior and interior are well preserved. Inside the museum are many exhibits, including Pezzoli's fine collection of sculptures, paintings - many by notable artists, watches, jewellery, glass, textiles, ancient armour and much more.
    Museum open: Tuesday to Sunday – 10:00 to 18:00
    Museum admission: charge

    Visit the Poldi Pezzoli...

    by NicoLepe Written Aug 25, 2002

    Visit the Poldi Pezzoli Museum. It is 100 meters from Piazza della Scala and it is surely worth a visit.
    Thanks to generous donors who bequeathed the museum over a thousand objects in the last fifty years, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum now features one of the most prestigious collections in Europe.
    In the singular atmosphere of the reconstructed rooms, great artworks co-exist with furnishings and decorative art objects of the highest artistic interest.
    The museum, which was destined by his founder 'for public use and benefit', continues to fulfil its original, fundamental intent of offering a service for the community.
