Pinacoteca di Brera Reviews
only sacred art in the collection, not worth it. None of the great Italian painters is on display in the gallery. more »
Pluie non stop sur Milan, la journée sera consacrée aux musées. Nous avons débuté par la pinacothèque de Brera. L'endroit est beau et la galerie très bien agencée.

The place is beautiful and the gallery very well arranged. You walk from room to room the magnificent works that are exhibited there. In addition, there was no one, the dream.
I enjoyed the collection, but the ticket seller was incredibly rude. Despite it saying that EU teachers in arts (INCLUDING literature) were permitted free entry, she did not accept my Dutch university ID. I told her that literature was listed in the subjects on the board behind me and she simply ignored me. This honestly colored my visit, and I was left unable to enjoy the art as much as I would have liked.
Definitely get the audio guide and be prepared with a proximity card for your payment as for some odd reason they did not have the capability of accepting the usual chip card. Fortunately, Google Pay worked.Great museum, but really unfriendly staff at the ticket desk. One particular woman was very difficult to deal with. I enjoyed the collection - not too large, but probably wouldn't return.
