Milan’s museums open free on Sunday

2 Oct. Milan is again adhering to the culture ministry’s call to open all museums free of charge on the first Sunday of every month this year.

From the Museum of Modern Art to the Museum of Archaeology, from the Aquarium to the Planetarium to the Museo dei Bambini, there is culture, education, activity and fun for all ages in the city’s wide range of collections.

Booking is necessary only for Leonardo’s Cenacolo (Last Supper) in the Oratorio in Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie, as the viewing area there is severely restricted. Bookings are accepted by phone on tel. 0292800360, or online from VivaTicket.

There is a list of Milan’s civic museums, with information and details of ongoing and future events, on the dedicated page of the city hall website. You can also download a 37-page multilingual guide to them all in PDF format (you’ll need a PDF reader such as Acrobat to view or print the guide).
