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 however lacks structure and would very much benefit from providing more context and background, especially for foreign visitors which are not up to speed on Italian history.

Absolutely full of the fascinating history of how Italian unity came about and the crucial part played by this city and the Piedmontese monarchy. Turin was the first capital of Italy and the seat of its first national parliament. The museum has 34 rooms with physical displays of artifacts, costumes, photographs etc. But the best part for us was the... More

The museum tells the story of Italy's independence through exhibits, descriptions, and videos. It is rich with artifacts and history, and housed in a magnificent building.

My husband and I went here in winter in mid-January. There were no more than 15 people in the whole place. So we could see whatever we chose in each room. There are about 30 rooms crammed with information. We think that you will be disappointed if you think that you can read it all, understand it all and remember... More

Best way of losing a few hours, sit outside one of the many bars with a beer / coffee and just take in the view, then grab a Gellateri and wonder through the entrance to the garden.

I love museums, but this one was rather dull. Most of the exhibits are prints and documents. The assembly chamber of the first parliament is the highlight.

We went to the museum predominantly to get out of the rain! Glad we did! It detailed the history of Italy from the 1800s and was fascinating. There's cards describing the main Artifacts in each room so you don't need to buy the audiotour if you don't want to. A nice way to spend a few hours.

We generally enjoyed visiting the Risorgimento Museum and were impressed by the sheer size of its collection -- over 30 galleries of artifacts. That said, even though we learned a lot during our visit, we also walked away feeling overloaded with information and details. On the plus side, we liked the videos mounted in many of the galleries -- they... More
