We were lucky enough to stumble across this humble museum. Who would thought that the most important event of modern Turin rests below the streets and is easily explored. We were also lucky enough to have a question and answer period with one of the curators!! What an experience for the kids that we had with our group. Don't miss... More

A MUST DO that most tourists miss out on! The tunnels - which were built during the siege in 1706 - are still owned by the Italian military and I guess this is the reason why it is not as well known as others but make sure you go! Entrance fee to the museum is 3 euros and it includes... More

The visit to this museum was a true surprise. It will allow you to know more about the story of the city but above all to some extend live it. The guide tour is on weekends only and the guides are volunteers and the access fee of the museum extremely affordable for what you are about to see! The museum... More

Entrance is only €3, so that's almost for free. The tourguids are all volunteers, so it's not all perfect. But our tourguide tryed it best to explain everything in English and gave us a very long lesson of history. Could be bit borring with young children, but for us it was 1,5 hours well spent. Make sure to mail upfront,... More

Don't be put off by the dingy museum or the flat tone of the tour guide who talks about the map of the city of Turin for 10m at the beginning of this tour. Just wait.. After this beginning you decend into a maze of unlit tunnels below the city and with a few flash lights you wander around and... More

I thoroughly recommend a visit to this museum! The staff are very friendly and knowledgable. I really didn't know what to expect, but left with a much better understanding of the history of Torino. There are many exhibits in the museum, but our guide explained and introduced the exhibits in an order that made sense and was easy to understand.... More

We liked the museum a lot but had a guide who really couldn't speak English. He really tried but if I didn't speak Italian I don't think I would have understood most of what he was saying. Interesting museum though!

This was a stop on a tour we took and it was very interesting. Pietro Micca is the partiot who contibuted in a decisive way, blowing up gunpowder, to stop the French siege in 1706, and it is placed on an area which corresponds, approximatly, to the enemy attack front. Opened in 1961, it contains plastic models, prints and relics... More

I only had a few hours to spare so I took in this museum based on some of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I'm glad I did. When I got there there were no other visitors so basically, I had a private tour with a detailed account and a close view of some genuine historical artifacts. My guide - also called... More
