I wasn't about to visit the museum & got there just by chance. I did like it, though, especially the installations on the ground flour. The price is very reasonable for such a museum (I also got a discount ticket being under 26). The only minus can mention is that although there're lots of different animal species all of them are titled only in Italian. As I don't speak Italian it was quite difficult for me to identify some of them :)

The museum is not in its normal place for Oct & Nov 2014.
Smaller exhibit can get through quickly. Nothing new from other museums.

We visited in Oct 2012. The building is very large from the outside and the entry is large and sweeping so we expected big things but the displays are very rudimentary and not very scientific. This is more a display of someone's taxidermy hobby. There is an inordinate number of preserved animals but very little in the way of information, context, relevance and nothing about their habitat. I think there is one video display so kids raised on high stimulation electronics will think you are punishing them if you take them here! It was quite a strange place. It seemed like there was a lot of unused space in the building. It almost seemed like we were looking at a collections storage room the way it was presented. I think we stayed about an hour and probably only that long to avoid the rain outside.

Great visit definitely recommended! The Regional Museum of Natural Sciences brings together collections of botany, entomology, geology - mineralogy - petrology, palaeontology and zoology. The Museum is housed in the building of the Ospedale di San Giovanni that still retains its original appearance externally. In the Palaeontology section are about 300 pieces of both plant and animal origin. The collection was formed in the eighteenth century and was later expanded in the nineteenth century. It also includes the important recent acquisitions from excavations and collections, like the rhinoceros, and the remains fish fossils. The zoological collection is fantastic! The visit lasts on average less than two hours and obviously depends on how much attention is devoted to each finding.

apart from the usual display of animals and skeletons, some quite old, they are opening a whole new area that's real state of the art in modern technicalities. lots of interactive planels, and all displays are really well done. explanation on the panels and screens is both in italian and english, so it's useful to foreign visitors too. this new area is freely visitable on saturdays and sundays only, whereas during weekdays there are only guided tours at 11am and 4pm, due to lack of staff... this should hopefully soon improve so that anyone can enjoy the new section. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I certainly recommend it if you are visiting the town for a fw days.

This museum was not at all worth the money. It is extremely small, its collection is very old and displayed in plain glass cases, it is disorganized, and it is boring. I love natural history museums, and the two that I have been to are the Field Museum in Chicago and the American Museum of Natural History in New York, which may two of the best in the world. This museum is terrible by comparison and pretty bad even without comparing it to other museums. It's hard to find your way around the museum, the special exhibit ("Wild Wonders of Europe," which cost 5 extra Euro) was literally just a room with pictures of animals hanging on the walls, and the taxidermied animals look as though they most likely pre-date my almost-70-year old parents. There was a frog floating in formaldehyde that had evaporated or somehow dwindled - it looked as though someone had just left their preserved amphibian collection thirty years ago and never bothered to come back to claim it.

The only reason I am sparing this museum from a 1 star rating is because they did have a walrus and some other interesting animals on display. Their presentation was just so bad as to be almost comical.

This muse um is currently being renovated so some displays are unavailable. Many of the animal collections are held in a temporary gallery in an "ark" but a display on taxidermy takes advantage of that to show differences in techniques and approaches to animal displays. Look out for temporary displays using museum objects in a different context.

This museum represents a good opportunity for adults to show their kids how mummified animals look like. Some are a little scary, some are not. Kids can also run (even if the tellers do not appreciate it) on the corridors.
On the upper floors you can even find some dinosaurs and a good view to nearby Torino.
