This used to be an old industrial complex that manufactured train carriages. It has now been transformed into one of the largest contemporary art spaces on the continent. There is only one major permanent art installation - the massive Seven Heavenly Palaces, made of concrete, weighing 90 tonnes each, and rising 14+ metres into the sky. You can find out about the cultural and artistic events and exhibitions hosted by the center on its website. There is also a reading room, a bookshop and a nice cafe.

Hangarbicocca, Milan Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is exactly how ALL art places should be: with free entrance, spacious, well organized, great permanent exhibition and always important and interesting temporary works, a very nice bar and restaurant.

  • An interesting experience for free but it's located quite far away from Milan city center and is closed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

  • I was looking forward to this museum but when we got there we had to hear that the permanent exhibition was closed and that we could only see the temporary exhibition. Because we had to travel like half an hour from the centre of Milan to this museum, we were a bit disappointed because we wanted to see more. The temporary exhibition on the other hand was free but it only took 30mins to see all the installations. And even some of the installations were not working. But I really liked the building and the entrance and the atmosphere.
