Archaeological Museum

A journey through the history of ancient Milano

Corso Magenta, 15

The Archaeological Museum was created to pay homage to the ancient soul of Milan and immerse yourself in its lost atmosphere. It is located near the Cinque Vie in Corso Magenta, inside the former convent of the Maggiore Monastery of San Maurizio.

Thanks to the recent renovations, the Museum has expanded its spaces to house Etruscan, Greek and early medieval sections.


The showpiece of the collection, and the emblem of the Museum, is the rare and celebrated Coppa Trivulzionamed in honour of the noble Milanese family in whose possession it remained for a long time. It is a stunning blown-glass, fretwork-crafted masterpiece, dating back to the late Roman Empire, that has been passed down to our time.




Milano is a child-friendly city (have you already discovered MUBA?) and the Archaeological Museum is no exception. To entice and introduce younger visitors to the exciting and complex subject of Archaeology it has come up with a great idea: the "Save-the-Parent Kit", a booklet containing, in addition to tips for an intelligent visit, games and activities by age group.
