“Great for an afternoons entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Enjoyed our visit to the cinema museum. Its housed in a pretty amazing tower, with a lift that goes right up through the middle of the building (suspended only by its ropes and with no lift shaft!).
Plenty of artifacts and displays to keep you interested. Recommended.

“A wonderful day out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We could have spent two days in the cavernous and fantastic "Mole", never mind a few hours. The exhibitions are modern, unusual, fascinating and exhilarating. Even the cafe has screens set into the table-tops as place-mats! The glass lift through the dome into the spire is a fabulous experience. I cannot recommend this enough!

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It is a rather uninque place. Do not miss of you stay in Turin. Also, they change exposition from time to time, therefore it is worth-revisiting. There is a nice restaurant for a different dining experience

“Nice museum...if you think the POLITENESS is an EXTRA...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I live in Turin and I think this museum is really funny and interesting although you aren't a cinema-addict.
However watch out for the ticket office. The staff- which we had met- was NOT QUALIFIED and also very IMPOLITE, ARROGANT! But don't worry, if you have a ticket a reduced price, show them all documents you have ( ID, student card...), because they ask you NOTHING - or WRONG DOCUMENTS - and they give you full ticket. The other visitors and we were caught unprepared and peeved.
I'm sorry because the museum is really nice but due to those UNPLEASANT people I give only 2/5.
