Address
Neighborhood: Bicocca
Although Bicocca is a peripheral district, many visitors will find it appealing. The district is enveloped by the immense Parco Nord (North Park), one of the largest parks in Europe. Inside is the theater Arcimboldi, one of the most important contemporary theaters where concerts and shows are organized. In the same area, there is the University of Milan Bicocca, whose distinct architecture rivals a movie set. Coffee shops, a multiplex and a shopping center are in the campus, along with the Fondazione Hangar Bicocca, one of the most famous museums of Contemporary Art.

Really amazing new art exhibition was really fun and amazing. I didn't imagine what all can be the art, you should see this if you arein near, the hangar is big and you can easily be here for 2 hours. They offer free refreshments.

This gigantic spaces allows for art installations to be large, imposing and impactful
Dec 2019
We visited this space whilst in Milan and were suitably impressed by the sheer scale and audacity of both the space and the artworks on view at the time of our visit (Cerith Wyn Evans, Anselm Kiefer and Danial Mangrané). Well worth a visit and admission is free.

Not kids friendly
Dec 2019 • Family
Not kids friendly. This place is not suitable for kids. The staff do not let young children try the VR even if the VRs fit them, totally unacceptable, the look on the kid’s face was sad and a put down. The staff do not even let kids be close to the sculptures.

Monumental Modern Art in a Hanger--Free admission
Jun 2019
Take large industrial buildings with high ceilings, add an acre of ramshackle towers, and finish off with several spaces with changing temporary exhibitions. This formula works well. The spaces are minimalist and huge, you wander around the temporary exhibitions and end up in the vast monumental land of precarious towers. Modern art should take you out of your ordinary world, that is well accomplished here. This is far outside the center of town, but easily reached by metro/walking, metro/bus, or bus, using the normal ticket good for the central zone. If you take the bus from the central station you will pass through a modern university neighborhood with striking modern architecture.

Art on an astonishing scale
Mar 2019 • Couples
This imaginative project has created a gallery space on an absolutely monumental scale. Even if you don't think you are a fan of contemporary art, you will find these installations nothing less than breathtaking. There are booklets explaining the works displayed, but you are of course free to interpret as you wish. (There's no entry charge.)

There's a bookshop, a smart bistro and an area for children to indulge their own artistry.

We were staying at the Hilton in the Precotto district - the hangar is only half-a-dozen stops away in Via Chiese on the 51 bus. The Bicocca district is a large post-industrial redevelopment including businesses, a university, residential areas and, close to the hangar, a park and shopping area with cafes and a cinema.

In the middle of nowhere one of the best exhibitions I’ve ever seen. Furthermore the brunch in the little bistrot is highly recommended. Awesome!

Worth a trip to the middle of nowhere!
Oct 2018 • Family
This is quite far off the beaten track but armed with our 24 travel passes we headed over here. It was a shame that the permanent exhibition was closed for a private function but the Igloo display didn’t disappoint. Well worth the journey & the artwork was a hot topic of conversation for some time afterwards.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING

I visited recently to check out the Seven Heavenly Places exhibition – it was MIND BLOWING! You have to go and see it to understand. The exhibition is located about 30 mins cycle from the centre of Milan, but easy to get to from metro. Free entrance, which is unbelievable. There is a restaurant onsite, we popped in for a coffee which was so so cheap, 1.50 euros. It’s a no brainer.

10 minute walk from nearest subway. Impressive space. The Kiefer installation is permanent and huge and worth seeing on its own. The rest of the space is for temporary exhibitions. Nice restaurant.

Free admission which was a plus, however if the museum charged I doubt I would have paid for this. Some people may love this museum however as it's to a certain taste. Unfortunately not mine. Very spacious inside and unlike any other art museum I've been to.
