Just a quick note to let you know, in case you're visiting Milan or staying in town this summer, that you can visit some of Milan's most important museums (until September 8) for free.
This great initiative returns, for the second year in a row, thanks to the collaboration between Milan's council and ENI.
From July 19 to September 8, the city's civic museums will be open to the public with free entrance.
The museums are:
Museo del Novecento: 20th Century art - http://museodelnovecento.org/en/
Archaeological Museum: Gandhara's art, Roman art, etc. - http://www.poliarcheo.it/
Museo del Risorgimento: paintings and prints illustrating Italian history from 1796 to 1870 - http://www.museodelrisorgimento.mi.it/
Natural History Museum: paleontology, zoology, mineralogy, etc. - http://www.comune.milano.it/dseserver/webcity/Documenti.nsf/webHomePage?OpenForm&settore=MCOI-6C5J9V_HP
Sforzesco Castle Museums: Museum of ancient Art, Ducal Courtyard, antique furnishings and art collections, etc. - http://www.milanocastello.it/ing/visitaVirtuale.html
In addition to those which are already free:

During August, these museums will be open (including August 15, national holiday) during their regular days and opening hours.
