While the palace looks amazing from the outside, I was glad the entrance was free with the Torino Card. I would have regretted paying. There was a lot to see, but I didn't understand what I was looking at most of the time due to the information only being given in Italian. The map was also quite confusing and I... More

Well what does one say to such a bad start the girl on the desk was so rude disinterested and unhelpful she needs so skills in welcoming people! The exhibition was very interesting and worth seeing all black and white photos and great insight into the time.

The Palazzo Madama has great architecture and the facade has an extraordinary beauty. The architect was Filippo Juvarra, an extraordinary architect. The staircase is magnificent. The museum has plenty of wonderful art. The palace itself is beautiful, with great chandeliers, mirrors, and furniture. This museum was the most enjoyable museum for me and my wife. The cafeteria was very elegant.

Spent an enjoyable couple of hours here on Saturday 11th April 2015. The collections are primarily Gothic and ceramic, with some stone masonry and modern art, too. The building itself is worth seeing and there's a small garden, which was vey pleasant. It was all rounded off by an impromptu concert given on the magnificent staircase by a visiting choir!

The front and back of this palace are from very different eras and it is hard to believe they are the same building. The front is over-the-top baroque and the grand staircase has to be seen (it is free). Once inside (most of my group got in free because it was World Woman's Day but we would have gladly paid)...

Spectacular historic building but also especially nice museum, located in the elegant and historic Piazza Castello, where are located the most famous and ancient buildings of the city. To get inside and see the museum is to pay a small fee ticket but if you prefer to just admire the building from the outside it's up to you, it is... More

The palazzo looks beautiful from the outside and there are certainly some interesting parts but there were a lot of negatives for me and I won't return here. This review I'll keep brief and to the point: Pro's - * The special exhibit on Primo Levi was very interesting and worth the visit * The mosaic floor downstairs was lovely... More

Great collections with a stunning view of the city panorama and Alps from the tower. For free you can walk up the beautiful staircase, otherwise the museum is 10euro.

At first floor, ending around february the 20th, you can enjoy an expositiond of many drawings by Filippo Juvarra, presented in a modern, live, and fascinating way. Don't miss it, if you like architecture and Torino.

The palazzo is from the 1700's, the castle goes back to medieval times - and it is built on old roman ruins. Great collections of furniture, art, china, lovely rooms, nice coffee shop - thoroughly enjoyed it.
