Finally, the Castle museums reopen after the long enforced closure! The hours have been altered in adherence with the post-lockdown regulations, so now you can admire the masterpieces on Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 to 18:00 (last admission at 17:00).
The following venues are open:
- Museo della Pietà Rondanini, dedicated to Michelangelo's latest masterpiece

The MilanoVetro -35 exhibition also reopens in the Sala della Balla to showcase the works of the international biennial competition of artistic glass and design launched by the Castello Sforzesco in July 2019 for young creatives under 35.
The other museums (Museum of Furniture and Wooden Sculptures, the Pinacoteca picture gallery and the Prehistoric and Egyptian Sections) are still temporarily closed but will reopen as soon as possible.
