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 Historical Objects and Exhibits of the Sforza Castle Museums include:
