Diocesan Museum of Milan
The Diocesan Museum of Milan houses and promotes the Diocese\'s precious artistic heritage. It is located in the Sant\'Eustorgio monumental complex, one of the most important and prestigious in Milan: it comprises the entire basilica block and the old Dominican convent, all of which developed into a highly significant area for Milanese Christian history over the centuries. The complex of Sant\'Eustorgio is located within the Basilicas Park. It was for many years an important centre for pilgrims on their journey to Rome or to the Holy Land, because it was the site of the tomb of the Three Magi or Three Kings.
The Diocesan Museum collection has over 700 works of art, divided into various sections. It contains also numerous works from the Diocese, dated from the 6th to the 9th century. The Museum’s collections are arranged chronologically and include works that were donations or are on loan from private or institutional collectors as well as some of the Milanese archbishops’ collections (Monti, Visconti, Pozzobonelli, and the complete Erba Odescalchi collection). Tuscan works from the 14th and 15th century are on display, as well as a section devoted to Sant\'Ambrose, goldsmithing objects, the cycle of the Holy Sacrament, and the “Way of the Cross” by Gaetano Previati. There are also many masterpieces from 20th and 21st century with a special focus on Lucio Fontana artworks.
The Museum organizes guided tours and didactic laboratories, and hosts changing exhibitions.
