The museum is located in the cloister of the church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. It still hosts two towers from the medieval times: one used to be one of the towers of the Circus Maximus and is now the bell tower of the church while the other used to be part of the roman walls. The museum occupies several levels and is divided into different collections, the part dedicated to Mediolanum, the roman town of Milan, the Greek collection, the Etruscan, the Egyptian and Early Middle ages one; there is also a small part with Indian art
The best public museum in town. The perfect location to meet History. If you love Roman Empire relics, that's the place to visit.
Has a lot of antiquities and rare items. However it isn't a large place, and you can not visit the tower. Cost is 5 euros and there is no waiting in line.
A nice place to visit in anyday
One of the best museums I ever visited. There is information and items of many civilizations, like the Romans, the Greeks, Etruscand and the Lombards.
