Special Visit: Archaeological Museum

Discover Milano with us

at 3.15pm - Museo Archeologico
Corso Magenta 15

Come visit Milano's archeological museum with YesMilano Students and discover the city's ancient history!

Although we normally associate Milan with fashion, design, business and innovation, the city also conceals an enthralling ancient past that begs to be discovered.

The Archaeological Museum was specifically created to evoke the ancient city and bring back its relinquished aura. Join us to discover the showpiece of the collection and the emblem of the Museum: the rare and celebrated Coppa Trivulzio. 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's Archaeological Museum

The museum is in a privileged location near the 5 Vie district in Corso Magenta, integrated within a marvellous architectural complex, the ex-convent of the Monastero Maggiore di San Maurizio. From 286 AD to 402 AD, Milan was the western capital of the Roman Empire and evident traces of the history of the ancient city are still to be seen.

The museum itinerary starts with a scale model of the forum, the Imperial Palace, the thermal baths, the theatre, basilicas, circus and amphitheatre. Thanks to trecent renovations, the Museum has also expanded its spaces to house Etruscan, Greek and early medieval sections.
