Sforza Castle in Milan was built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, on the remnants of a 14th-century fortification.

Later renovated and enlarged, in the 16th and 17th centuries it was one of the largest citadels in Europe.

Extensively rebuilt in 1891–1905, it now houses several of the city’s museums and art collections.

The Castello complex includes a number of museums:

  • The Pinacoteca del Castello Sforzesco – Art collection
  • The Museum of Ancient Art
  • The Museum of Musical Instruments
  • The Egyptian Museum
  • The Prehistoric collections of the Archaeological Museum of Milan
  • The Applied Arts Collection
  • The Antique Furniture & Wooden Sculpture Museum
  • The Achille Bertarelli Print Collection
  • The Museum of Rondanini Pietà
  • The Trivulziana Library
