During WW II, Jews, Roma and the disabled were deported to Nazi death camps from this hidden platform under Milan central train station. Yes, the exhibit is both stark and jarring. But disappointing? How can one describe this as disappointing?? What did you expect? This...More

Although directly located below the Central Train Station, there is no mention of the museum at the Station. You must go outside the station and enter through a separate entrance guarded by armed soldiers. The museum show the original cattle cars and tracks used to...More

I was expecting more exhibits and with English notes. I believe that the exhibition is developing but I felt was a bit thin. The experience of entering the cattle trucks used to transport the Jews to the concentration camps was very moving and made you...More

Found by chance, close to my hotel. Extremely surprised at the size and creativity of this memorial. Main caveat is that all plaques are Italian only, so for a thorough visit, use a guide or brochure.
