The Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to it vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup. The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. And the various areas inside the Mole Antonelliana were the starting point for the Swiss set designer François Confino who, with talent and imagination, multiplied the museum's itineraries. He created a spectacular presentation that offers visitors continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.

The museum undoubtedly has lots of interesting things to see, but it was impossible to 'pick and choose' as there was no floor plan. It was very busy when we visited and we were tired out before completing the circuit. It would have been so much better if we had been able to choose our own route. Fascinating building.

The Turin Tourist office told us we could see this place in 2 hours, but we could have used 2 more. The museum encompasses both the development of the camera and motion pictures as well as the stars of cinema. The lounge chairs on the ground floor were a great way to relax, after all the walking, and view the... More

Incredible museum, full of the history of cinema. Very busy with school groups so didn't have a real chance to see as much as we wanted. For all cinema buffs it is a must.

If you go on a clear day and are not too afraid of heights take the glass elevator and enjoy the 360 panorama it's great. The museum itself is interesting with many different parts. It won't take more than a couple of hours. There is a cafe and a shop . One of the nicer things to do is recline... More

Interesting museum with lots of cinematic pieces and history. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. You get to see quite a bit of the history of cinema also.

Queued an hour to get into this museum, but it was worth every minute! The whole experience was incredible! You could easily spend hours here. Whether you're big into cinema or not you will still enjoy. Even if you get tired, you can lie down in one of the chairs and take in a movie! By the time you're finished... More

This is just a great building even if you don't like movies. The movie collection is a bit disappointing if I'm honest. Quite a lot of obscure italian cinema e.g. one room where all seats are made of toilets. I'm sure it's a witty reference to something cinematic but who knows what!? There are also a series of sets and... More

We come only to see the panoramic view of the city from the very top of the building and it was worth the visit

The books built this museum up so much but it really wasn't that impressive. There are some interesting things such as the invention of cinema and how it progressed but beyond that not much is there. We sat down and watched a few movies, saw some old posters and spent ages battling with school students as they took up the... More
