The museum witnesses the life of the great temple of the opera. The works which are displayed in the museum range from musical instruments to memorabilia and portraits of the artists, who have trod the scene of the great opera house theater. The opening of the museum was strongly wanted by the upper class people of Milan of the early twentieth century. Its core is the original theatrical collection of the antiquarian Jules Sambon, which was sold at auction in Paris at the begining of XX century. Later the museum collection have been enriched by further donations and memorabilia more closely related to the history of La Scala Opera House.
In case there are no rehearsals inside the Opera House, the visit includes an overlooking inside the theatre itself from one of the boxes.
Time length: about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
