This museum is fascinating and much more interesting than one might suppose. The only negative is the central ramp, which is actually stunning and very interesting but, if like me you do not like heights and they do not like you, then don't venture onto it. In fact, this does not matter as there is plenty more to do and... More

I was in Turin on conference... I am glad I went to this museum. It was easily one of the best laid out museums I have been to. You could easily get lost in here for a couple of hours. There are even lounge chairs if you feel the need to rest and watch snippets of old international movies. If... More

Nice, but....I wonder why they do not have a proper heating system. You have to visit the museum with a heavy coat on, like you were outdoor....that's absolutely unacceptable, specially because you pay a ticket to enter. What a pity, otherwise an interesting experience.

You cannot come to Italy, country of cinema talents like Fellini, De Sica and Visconti, and not visit the Museum that celebrates their masterpieces!

This museum is really special and really interesting, not only to cinema fans but to everyone. If you go to Molle Antonneliana do not miss the museum part. The view from the tower is great too. In season peak, as I was in summer it was crowded and you had to wait for like half an hour in the line,... More

Museum deserves attention filmmakers and for fans of the history of cinema. Unfortunately, the observation deck of the museum is closed until April.

Disappointed that the glass elevator that takes visitors through the center of the building for 360 degree view of the theater was closed during our stay. Note it is closed until 25 March 2015. You can still visit the lobby area, small gift shop and cafeteria for free, but you'll have to pay for museum, which we skipped, when we... More

Located in the Mole - the museum is a bit confusing and odd. The highlight is taking the glass elevator up to the top - WHAT A VIEW!!

I loved the whole setting. The only black note is the souvenir store that could offer in my opinion better choice.

I don't know what time you need to turn up here to avoid the queues to get a view from the top, so we skipped that bit. The museum istelf if quiet querky, and has a really impressive open hall lay out over about 4 floors with a staircase around the outside which leads you past the exhibits. Lots of... More
