The story of Italian unification is fascinating in itself and this museum has all the history of the various stages and the key players right up into the 20th century. What makes it particularly interesting are the videos playing in several rooms describing what was happening elsewhere in Europe as the unification progressed, putting everything into an international context that...

30 rooms to cope with, so be there early. Interestingly made - invest in the extra money for the audio-guide with different tour options at hand. See webpage for concessions (disabled?). I will be there for a second visit.

This museum is very well done with room upon room of artifacts well displayed. There is a stall in each room with cards explaining the pieces in 8 different languages which I liked as you got more information but not too much! We visited on a Sunday and were the only people there and I just can't understand why as... More

A museum that has a huge collection of arms through out the ages . Can get a bit tiresome , but impressive none the less.

This was the final place we visited in Turin - and we only really went because we had some time to 'kill' before we went to the airport. The architecture of the building is well worth seeing. The exhibition inside is about Turin's history, which didn't interest us - mainly because it was all in Italian.

I really enjoyed this museum. It was totally empty when I went (at around 3pm on a Tuesday). It was super easy to get around and see the exhibits. I did not get the audioguide and relied on the information cards. They are very good as well as the videos. However, there is A LOT of information. As a historian,... More

Americans are surprised to be told that their country is nearly 100 years older than Italy, although in fact Italy's current borders were set as late as 1919, when Austria lost Trieste and its hinterland at the end of World War I. The story of how a patchwork of what had been city states, with Papal governance in some areas... More

Perhaps not high up on the list to visit for foreign tourists. But worth popping in if you are in the city for a longer period. Not over expensive and well laid out.

If you really like the history of Italy then you may enjoy this museum which explains in a good way all the phases which have brought Italy to be a real nation. The place is full of many interactive areas and very accurate from an historical point of view. I have nonetheless found it a bit boring

As a non-Italian, this museum does a very good job and letting me know the history of the Kingdoms coming together. Each room has hand held placards in various languages for visitors,
