Why locals love it
Housed in a converted industrial building in an up-and-coming area outside the city centre, Hangar Bicocca attracts artsy types with its cutting edge exhibitions and workshops. This place is famous for its site-specific installations (similar to those at London's Tate Modern) that over the years have included giant balloons and rooms set at -30 °C.
Why you should visit it
If you love art, design and getting out of the city centre, you'll love Hangar Bicocca. Not many people know about it besides creative locals, and a visit will almost certainly guarantee you an artistic experience to remember. The neighbourhood itself is modern and architecturally very interesting.
Free guided tours on Sundays at 5 pm.
