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
Although we struggled to find this memorial we were eventually helped and instructed to find the entrance around the corner from the station. It is a little confusing as it is stated that it is on platform 21 yet it is not actually accessible from...More
We learned about the history & memorial from a leaflet at our hotel. Our visit coincided with a large group of students. Their teachers were trying here & there to 'shuush' the talking of the youngers; but the chatter, again, evoked what must've been a...More

It was a bit difficult to find but someone at Milan Centrale Station directed us around the corner and down the street to the entrance which was guarded by two Soldiers. We have been to many Shoah Memorials as well as Concentration Camp sites. This...More

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.
