Super interesting museum about the foundation of Italy. Great original artifacts. Very well divided by period. Very interesting for Italians or history buffs. Too detailed for children and teens i would say. It would have been great to have a guide or audio guide to...More

I'm not a fan of military history or displays, but if you have the Torino museum card, it's worth including this space as a stop as the building is very impressive alone, regardless of the displays and is worth discovering.

This museum started out amazingly interesting. Several longish videos will explain European History to you. My schooling entirely missed out this bit of history and it was well-done. After that we were excited for the piece de resistance - the Risorgimento! However, it seems as...More

We were drawn into this museum because of a temporary photo exhibit advertised throughout the city but we had to go through a fairly dull historical perspective of Italian nationalism dating from the 18th century. Lots of rooms filled with documents, some displays and countless...More

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.
