We came here with no expectations or prior knowledge of what we would find inside but it turned into a 3 hour visit that was truly entertaining. The permanent exhibits are filled with tons of film and cinema memorabilia, costumes, equipment, etc. There are also interactive displays that could be fun for kids. The interior of the building is amazing,... More

This attraction is cool. Originally conceived as a synagogue, the project foundered but was assumed by the City and completed. It's on then 2 cent Italian coin. The structure is reputed to be the tallest in Italy (though we think a couple of skyscrapers in Milan could challenge), but it's its unusual square topped by the soaring spire that is... More

If you what to see the Torino skyline pay E 6 andg o to the top of the Mole. The view is outstanding, especially in the evening. There are cafe's and restaurants by it as well if you what to sit and just enjoy the view of the Mole itself.

A very distinctive building, near the university, so the area is full of students and very lively. There are a lot of street vendors around selling everything. Food is a bit cheaper around - probably coz of students

Took the glass elevator to the top of the Dome. Very reasonable price for the great views. At the top it would have been good to have had a key to the sites being looked at. No real idea of North, South, East or West. But the vista nevertheless was worth the trip up.

I waited about half an hour for the lift but waits can be a lot longer, especially if you coincide with school or coach parties, as the single lift only takes 8-10 people at a time. The lift is glass-sided and goes up through the centre of the building, so you have the impression of dangling in empty space, before... More

The ride up in the elevator is half the fun as you can view the interior of the Mole and part of the Museo Cinema. It's a beautiful view of Torino and the surrounding mountains. $6 for adults, $4 for over 65; free WiFi while inside.

Apart from what previous reviewers have stated re films and touch screens etc; the building itself is absolutely unique. From the outside it resembles a giant Arabian bell and has been meticulously renovated; the films of which are showing for free inside and run continuously; these workers resemble mountaineers more so than construction workers; scary stuff. It is free to... More

Not many people don't like movies so this museum is a must for anyone. Of all the movie related places I have been, this is by far the most beautiful, interesting and well presented museum for film. Every month they have a special exhibition and I have now been 3 times. If by chance you are not a fan of... More

good, but shame that most of the touch-screens weren't working. There are lots of interesting displays but it's tricky to understand which way to walk around. Nice going up on the lift and seeing the view of Turin. Definitely worth it.
