Pinacoteca di Brera

Hotel Milano Castello is in a great position to reach the Pinacoteca di Brera in just a few minutes on foot.

The Pinacoteca di Brera is a national gallery of ancient and modern art, located in the homonymous palace, one of the largest complexes in Milan with over 24000 square meters of surface.
The museum exhibits one of the most famous collections in Italy of painting, specialized in Venetian and Lombard painting, with important pieces from other schools. Moreover, thanks to donations, it offers an exhibition itinerary that ranges from prehistory to contemporary art, with masterpieces of artists of the twentieth century.

The Pinacoteca di Brera was officially established in 1809, although a first heterogeneous collection of works was already present starting from 1776 - and expanded in subsequent years - for educational purposes, alongside the Academy of Fine Arts commissioned by Maria Theresa of Austria. The corpus had in fact to constitute a collection of exemplary works, intended for the training of students.
