The cinema museum is great! Is nice how they did the museum in such a historic building. The museum content is nice, as it shows since the beginning, before video cameras, up to current cinema with special effects. Children do like it. If you like cinema and history, plan to stay at least 2 hours there.

One of the places you should visit from Torino. Huge place with lots of information and stuff from cinema's history, displayed in a very attractive format for the general public.

I loved it! I think i could live in there and watch movies all day long! I love cinema and the history of cinema as well, so i was really excited to learn new things and see things that were used in historical movies. Nice panoramic view from the top of the building. Although, i can't believe that the stuff... More

Once again another great activity in Torino. Well spent few hours learning about the whole history of cinema (though maybe lacking in some of the more current techniques or maybe we missed that part). Quite a lot is interactive which made it more interesting. As other people have stated, maybe not enough English labelled explanations, but of course they get... More

A bit confusing, there is a lot to see , but it's a very nice place dedicated to Cinema. Not enough English explanations. Take the lift for the panoramic view and don't miss the inside on the building as well !

This museum was unexpectedly original and big. It's divided in two parts with the growth of the cinema and scientific discoveries that made it possible and a second part about the movies themselves. The hall is huge and really well furnished.

This museum is impressive and is beautifully laid out lovingly designed by an art director or someone with a great design sense. It’s in an old synagogue and you can go to the top of the tower for extra euros, however the line is over an hour long for that part. This museum has a vast collection of early memorabilia... More

This building was originally destined to be a synagogue, however when it rose to ever higher levels, the Jewish community of Turin sold it and built a more modest synagogue. A visit to,the. Useful is an overwhelming experience and one that incorporates a great deal of cinematic history and Nostalgia.
