Castello Sforzesco

Castello Sforzesco is a museum complex in Milan, which is well worth visiting. The castle is gorgeous and there are a few museums to see too. The entry fee is only €5 per person for all the museums, so it’s incredibly cheap. I would suggest allowing for a day to visit the museum, considering that you will want to have a lunch break and stop a couple of times for refreshments too. The museums are diverse, ranging from archaeology to musical instruments.
Due to the lack of time, I will not get into details on each picture featured, but I would be happy to answer any questions in the comments. Enjoy the pictures from the castle and museums.

  1. Is that wrought iron work hanging on the wall? There was a time I wanted to learn how to make things in wrought iron. Two photos above that… what is that porcelain(?) piece meant for? Also, what an interesting musical instrument! Is there a name for it?

    1. Yes, that’s wrought iron. The picture directly above is a strongbox (that’s the locking mechanism) and two pictures above is a ceramic inkwell from 16th century. I imagine the pen was placed underneath, but I might be wrong, there weren’t a lot of details on that item.
      The musical instrument is a guitar-harp. :)) Dates back to 1911, so not very old, but really unusual.
