Seven museums in one!
Why locals love it
After the unification of Italy and many years of military use, Sforzesco Castle was returned to the city of Milan. Architect Luca Beltrami was entrusted with the restoration of this old fortress. What remains today is only part of the original structure built by the Sforza family in the 15th century.
Why you should visit it
Today Sforzesco Castle houses seven museums: the Museum of Ancient Art; the Sforza Castle Pinacoteca art gallery; the Museum of Musical Instruments; the Egyptian Museum; the Archaeological Museum; the Applied Arts Collection of Milan and the Antique Furniture and Wooden Sculpture Museum.
Free admission every Tuesday from 2–5:30 pm; Wednesday–Friday from 4:30–5 pm.
