If you have ever been to Europe, chances are you'll have spent a lot of time in museums that can get rather same-y. Good news, this one is a refreshing change. The fantastic glass elevator which makes you feel like Charlie inheriting his chocolate factory, the chill-out zones with loungers to enjoy film-shorts, brilliant film sets dotted around and the...

For such a place, it is very, very difficult to write a review. This museum really must be seen to be believed, it is absolutely spectacular. One of the highlights, is laying in special chairs and watching excerpts from various classic films.

Hugely interesting building, originally conceived as a synagogue and very effectively used as a museum of cinema with some great exhibits to tell the story from the very earliest magic lanterns etc Most city views are worth it, so take the panoramic elevator (extra charge) and prepare to thrill. The panorama comes when the elevator rises out of the basement... More

Went there to kill half an hour but stayed for 3 hours... The museum is located inside the amazing Mole Antoneliana, I was expecting the usual collection of old projectors, movie posters and the odd memorabilia from some famous movie, I wasn't ready for the full immersion experience with the mini movie theatres showing the best bits from all the...

Well worth a visit. Apart from the permanent exhibition there are thematic exhibitions that usually last from 1-2 months. Of course if the weather is fine, one has to take the trip to the top and take in the view of the mountains

Located in one of Turin's main landmarks, you definitely have to visit this temple of Italian cinema. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the movies. There's lots of stuff to see on the history of filmmaking and they have loads of props from US blockbusters. Don't forget to take the elevator to the top of the tower !!
