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.

How can you mess this up??? You have the most exciting subject you can dream of yet you manage to make it into one of he most boring experiences in my life.

You cannot miss this wonderful museum, definitely! The history of cinema is condensed here and I think it is one of the most complete museums dedicated to fimography and cinema. Different floors make you have a wonderful trip that stsrts from the origins of cinema to the current day. Moreover, you can take the lift and go up until the... More

Well worth visiting, went up the Moll first then into the museum spent 2-3 hours in total. Took you through history of how films were made , lots of interaction and hands on gadgets to use/ move. Excellent for both big and little kids!! However would recomend to pre book if going at weekends otherwise be prepared to wait!

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
