Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really liked the art and the building. As student the entrance was €11 a bit expensive and therefore I was doubting to visit it. But it was worth it, i spend more than an hour because there was much to see and I liked the atmosphere. Many paintings from good artists and also some cool objects and sculptures. No pictures allowed but I recommend!

  • Excellent museum of medieval and Renaissance fine arts. Alas, visitors are not allowed to take even non commercial photo without flash light. So, no visits anymore unless rules will be changed.

  • Attractive building and super-helpful staff. But the Art isn't top notch and with the way it's lit, by the third room you're overdosing on the saccharine colours. There are a few gems but I'm not sure they justify the €15 entry ticket.

  • A magnificent, exceptional, first-class pinacoteca with a masterful and unbelievably extraordinary collection of paintings and sculptures. Really mind-blowing for art lovers!

  • If you love art you have to visit it, very few da Vinci illustrations. But is worth it. By the way, I loved the floors :)
