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.

Lots of interesting information. Gives you all the history related to photography and it's evolution to today's movies. Could do with an update of the latest movie techniques. Coupled with the lift it is a great day out.

Fascinating insight into the world of film and especially director Rossellini's films, including Germany Year Zero made in 1948. Having recently visited Berlin and seen the east German experience it has made me want to see this film.

We took the museum entrance including the lift to the top. It was great! The centre of the museum is the best part, take a seat in one of the chaisse longues and watch a movie, best way to experience the museum. The museum show you all the important things about Italian film history with film decors, posters, fragments etc.... More

I must confess, I was a little bored to begin with with this museum. That's probably due to having recently been to an exhibition on Georges Melies in Malaga that presented the origins of cinema in a much more engaging way. As you go round however it becomes more interesting, especially when it opens out into the enormous atrium with... More

Decoration and exhibition merge into an incredible tour through the cinema history. Dont miss it!! There's a lot to see. If you need some rest from the continuous slow walking, you can lie on the cinema-beds of the main hall.

Huge museum and very interesting. My teens enjoyed it very much too. Interactive. The view of Turin up in the Mole tower is impressive. Long queues due to the one and only (small) sized elevator which can only fit 9 adults (and furtively squeezing in two small kids) at a time.
