Did you know that every Tuesdays after 2pm, you can enter certain museums for free in Milan? That’s such a cool opportunity to learn about and explore the rich cultural heritage of this beautiful city. And there’s no better place to start than at Castello Sforzesco!
This magnificent castle was built in the 15th century by the Duke of Milan, Francesco Sforza. It’s like stepping back in time as you wander through its hallowed halls, which now house several museums showcasing art, history, and culture.
One museum that should definitely be on your list is The Unfinished Pieta. The statue is truly awe-inspiring and the way it’s presented will take your breath away. The gallery is kept quiet, so you can admire the beauty of the artwork in peace, and taking photos is allowed as long as you don’t use flash.
Next, don’t miss the Mother and Child room at The Decorative Arts Museum. This museum is quite large and showcases the unique style and flair of Milan. You could easily spend an hour and a half admiring the collections and discovering all that this museum has to offer.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see the Egyptian Museum and others on my visit, but with all the museums that are free every Tuesday after 2pm, there’s always another opportunity to go back and explore more! I have no doubt that each and every one of them is worth visiting. So grab a coffee, take a stroll through the castle courtyard, and immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Milan!
