Very large and extensive amount of history and display on movies. The building was amazing and in the middle was a very comfortable place to lay in recliners and watch a movie when you just needed to rest!

There are several additional themed exhibits, and the jaw-dropping Temple Hall in the atrium of Mole Antoniello,...More

For your information you can buy the combined pass for the Royal Palace and the following: Appartamento di Rappresentanza, Armeria Reale, Galleria Sabauda and Museo Archeologico. 3 hours should be more than enough.

Hello, Could you tell me from the train station to the Mole Antonelliana Museo nazionale del Cinema, is it possible to walk or should I take a bus ? Thank you, Masaryk

Yes, it is perfectly walkable and central Turin is fascinating. Good cafes and you will get glimpses of the Museo tower to help you on your way. You are in for a great treat.
