Mainly illustrations and some portraits, to be frank, most of them not of highest quality and very few artefacts. I expected much more to find in museum with such name in such historically rich country as Italy is,

This attraction is hosted in a Palace between 2 squares. There are 30 rooms prepared chronologically, each with a theme. There are documents and pictures and objects that are representative for each theme, from relations with French to 1st world war. Very rich and informative.

Well done, very interesting but mainly if you're passionate about history. It is a collection of art and documents related to the union of Italy. Not interactive at all. The building itself is very beautiful!

This is the Piedmontese point of view of the Unification (Risorgimento) of Italy. It is excellent in laying out the history. The audio guide in English is very good and you can get detailed explanations of various items as you go along. My wife doesn't...More

A lovely building. But room after room of paintings of battles and uprisings throughout Europe with no sense of a narrative that I or my wife could make out. There were artefacts in each of the rooms, but a uniform, a loom or a carriage...More
