The Mudec Museum of Cultures was founded in 1990 when the City of Milan acquired the Ansaldo ex-industrial area with destination in cultural activities. The Museum of Cultures is inspired by an intercultural vocation that inspired him as a historical record, and interpretation of the contemporary vision of the future international twist. The permanent collection of the museum houses an ethno heritage - very varied anthropological more than 7000 works of art, everyday objects, textiles and musical instruments. The architecture of the museum is definitely important due to the recovery operation of the former Ansaldo factory. Inside the building are hosted exhibition areas both for the permanent collection for major temporary exhibitions. Of note is the presence of an entirely Mudec Lab space dedicated to children, which offers guided theme tours and fun workshops that fit into the museum and temporary exhibitions.
