Museo archeologico di Milano

Where Corso Magenta, 15, Milano

The Archaeological Museum of Milan is located in an extraordinary architectural context, the former convent of St. Maurizio the Greater, founded in the eighth century AC. The collections are displayed according to thematic criteria: at the ground floor, there is a section dedicated to the "Ancient Milan"; the path continues in the cloister, where it can visit the polygonal tower (late third century) with early Medieval frescoes. In the basement, it can visit the sections of Caesarea Maritima and Gandhara. From the cloister, along the footbridge over the Roman walls, it can reach the new building: in the polygonal tower is exhibited a sculpture donated to the City of Milan by Mimmo Paladino; next to the Conference Room there is the path "Silent Sounds", dedicated to early music. On the first floor is exposed the early Medieval section and on the third, Etruscan and Greek sections. Egyptian, Prehistory and Early History collections, are on display in the "Visconti Room" in the Sforzesco Castle.
