The art collection of the Savoy Dynasty
Dec 2019
Although not as famous as other notable art galleries around the world, the Sabauda Gallery has a collection which is not to be missed if you love art and you are in Turin. The paintings were collected by the members of the Savoy Dynasty several centuries and include a lot of religious art, from the 14th till the 20th century arranged chronologically, by Dutch and Italian artists, including Piedmontese, such as Rembrandt, Botticelli, Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Bellini and many others. There are lots of sculptures and busts as well.
The Sabauda Gallery has been a part of the Royal Museums in Turin since 2014 when the paintings were transferred to the New Wing of the Royal Palace as it was originally in Palazzo Madama and later shifted to the Palace of the Academy of Science.
Even though I am not an art geek, I did enjoy the time I spent there.

Not worth 12 Euros!
Aug 2019 • Couples
It could be best to price this at 3 euros and not the full 12 euros that we paid for the whole complex. In one day we cannot see everything and so the ticket is wasted. It would be best to have separate tickets for separate buildings.

The best paintings for us were on the second floor and it would have been so much more nicer if they had been mounted on the first floor.

The paintings in second floor are battles, nature scenes, city life, still life etc.. so they are different from the Christian iconography that you see in many other museums and art galleries and even on the first and ground floor of Galleria Sabauda.

The ground floor of Galleria Sabauda houses Roman remains found in Turin mainly beneath the palaces they are housed in. As the palaces or churches near them were renovated, these Roman remains were found and have been displayed. They are nice but the English text is a bit in a color that is not so easily readable. In some places the text is too far away or is not lit well. So better signages are needed and more explanations are needed, may be an audio guide.

The Gardenia Royal, the garden in front of Galleria Sabauda were about ok, may be not enough care is being given to them now.

great collection, poorly organized
Jul 2019
Outstanding collection--too bad there are no maps and no one able to answer simple questions about where paintings or time periods of paintings are located. Needs better orientation for visitors and could use a refresh on notes regarding paintings--provenance is the least interesting thing they could tell us about the paintings, and that's all we are told.

In the shade of other parts of the Royal palace
May 2019 • Friends
The admittance to the Sabauda gallery is included in your combined Royal palace ticket. The entire complex is an outstanding one and its prime attractions are the apartments, armory and library, so we left this gallery for the end of our visit.
Nothing spectacular for a ordinary tourist, an art gallery which is imo in the shade of the above. If not an art freak you can easily skip it.

I believe the gallery hosts an interesting collection, but 3 of 4 floors were closed at the time of visit. No information in English also.

Well Worth a Visit
May 2018 • Solo
Regrettably the Museo Egizio (Egyptian Museum) was closed for refurbishing/moving. So I eventually found the Galleria Sabauda. This gallery contained many fine paintings by local reformation artists (Piedmont, Venetian and Tuscan), particularly Mantegna, Veronese, Tiepolo and Angelico. Unfortunately, some of the rooms were closed so I did not get to see the collection of notable Dutch and Flemish paintings. It appeared that the Galleria Sabauda was also in the process of moving which could be the reason why there was a significant lack of information. It also explains why it was very difficult to find the gallery - not where it was indicated in my guide books. This should be a very good gallery to visit when it has completed it move/refurbishment cycle. Just be sure that you know exactly where it is located!

Disappointing
Feb 2019 • Couples
I made the trip to Turin especially for the Galleria and was disappointed to find it in such a state. From the few information sings I gathered that a re-modelling is underway, but the current presentation is disappointing. Hopefully it will be 'royal' by the time it is finished but now it doesn't belong to the group of 'Musee Reali'

A good exhibition
Jan 2019 • Friends
We visited the Van Dyke exhibition. Unfortunately, on Saturday, there was no tourist guide available. However, with the audio guides you can make an interesting ride. The historical and customary upturn is well described in the comments on the various works. Interesting the Ligurian period, English and the portraits. To visit.
