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.

A great collection of cinema history, science, art and memorabilia. Great for anyone with an interest in cinema. The building it is housed in is also very worth seeing. After exhausting yourself by wondering through the exhibits, you can relax in a lounger surrounded by cinema screens and other amazing things to watch, or eat in the in-house Eataly restaurant.

It's the perfect place in any time with any weather: if it's cold and rainy you can visit this wonderful monument in the inside where you find the national cinema museum. It's rich and interactive; very interesting and fun at any age. But if it's sunny and clear you can also use the incredible glass lift and reach the top... More

It is an interesting museum which offers some interactive displays. Most of the material relates to the Italian Cinema industry however some parts showing the evolution of cinema in general is fascinating. Worth visiting off season as during peak season it is very crowded.

despite mixed reviews, this is a must for all cinema lovers. Although it's a shame that there isn't a section dedicated especially to Italian cinema.

Stunningly presented. I especially enjoyed the way the later models had been placed with artefacts, furniture, fashion, adverts, music and TVcommercials of the time, which plaved it in the social context beautifully

The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, and has a huge collection of various scientific and educational cinema related tool ranging from the first attempts to project an image to current times. It is quite interactive thus an interesting subject matter for school children - but adults too. It keeps a huge and growing collection of film posters, stocks,... More

Visited here and the mole. For the museum, unless you are a cinema buff or a young kid you might appreciate it more. Probably worth some time to glance around.
