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!

The unification of Italy is a fascinating story. The museum is located in a beautiful building and has an ample collection of interesting original artifacts to support the narrative.

It is an interesting museum which is larger than one would suspect. It has a variety of displays covering a range of historical times additionally some of the rooms themselves are spectacular and worth visiting on their own merit.

Museum is too dry to our liking, alot of treaties and stuff. Not my cup of tea, perhaps to others it is.
