The Triennale is an international cultural institution founded in 1923 to promote fine arts and the development of architecture. The Design Museum is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte, a palace situated in the southeast of the Parco Sempione. It was built in 1933 as the headquarters of the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts.
The museum features a permanent collection in a vast room and the rest of the halls contain temporary exhibitions dedicated to avant-garde design in Milan.
The Design Museum changes its temporary exhibitions every few months, making it impossible to recommend it without having seen each exhibition first.
If you have an interest in design and architecture, you can check the museum’s official webpage to see what exhibitions are currently on display. In our opinion, this museum may not be so interesting for the general public however.
