This relatively young museum (established around 2010) is housed in the Barolo Castle, a medieval fortress dating back to the 10th century, although significantly restored and remodeled on multiple occasions over time. It belonged to the Falletti family until the 1800 and was acquired by...More
If you're coming from America then you'll enjoy this Piemont similar likeness to Vegas.
