The museum is part of the complex refurbished from the 1920s Fiat factory in Lingotto. It is short walk from Lingotto metro station.

As I was staying at the nearby DoubleTree by Hilton, I was able to get free admission otherwise I believe the entry fee is €12.

To get to the museum, you had to follow the arrows in the 8 Gallery shopping mall. A green card (or NHS Covid certificate in my case) had to be shown to gain access.

The history of the iconic Fiat 500 was told in pictures, exhibits and a short video. Much was made about the new electric version.

I enjoyed the small art collection. Several Canalettos, some work from Matisse and individual paintings by Picasso, Manet and Modigliani.

I was glad to see some Italian modernist work from Balla and Severini. There were also some great sculptures adjoining the outside race track from the likes of Joan Miro and Barbara Hepworth.

However the highlight of the museum has to be the rooftop race track, made famous in the Sixties film The Italian Job.

The views from here were superb, especially of the Alps.

Spent a most enjoyable hour here and would recommend even without free admission.

Would rate it much lower because of staff unfriendliness (was warned against taking photos multiple times). But the rooftop made up for it.

The highlight was access to the rooftop Fiat test track which has to be seen to be believed. Get the same view of Lingotto factory and Torino that playboy jet-setter Gianni Agnelli enjoyed from his rooftop office. A really lovely afternoon view that washed away the clerks’ attitudes.

Well worth the effort using lifts and stairs to this small but outstanding rooftop gallery. Canalettos, Matisse and Picassosform the core. Quiet and unhurried and free using the voucher from the NH Lingotto Hotel downstairs. Also an opportunity to see the old FIAT test track in the sky.

The collection amounts to about 16 paintings only--for 12 euros. I've seen a lot of Canalettos in many, many European museums and the 6 Canalettos are at best second rate or even possibly not by Canaletto. Canaletto's work usually features sharp, photographic detail and bright highlights--the Agnelli's collection doesn't resemble the paintings I've seen in Venice, Moscow, Paris, London and elsewhere.

The Matisse paintings are also second tier.

I'm sorry to say that we regret taking the trouble to go to visit this very overpriced collection. Even if the paintings were genuine and first rate the small size of the collection doesn't rate a price of more than 4 euros.

This is a must see site in Turin if you have even the slightest interest in art. It consists of "just" 24 works... from the private Agnelli collection. But oh are they sublime !! There are 22 paintings: 6 Canalettos, 2 Bellottos, 7 Matizes, 2 Picassos, a Renoir, a Modigliani, a Guido Reni and 2 pieces from the Modern Futurists school. There are also 2 superb Canova sculptures. Every one of them a masterpiece. Obviously you could spend a long time looking at such a fabulous collection but equally, if time is tight, it's the sort of place that you could do reasonably quickly. It is easily accessed at the end of the metro line about 20 minutes from the city centre. The building that houses the museum is itself a wonderful and clever piece of architecture and sits on top of the old Fiat factory, which is now a shopping centre. As an extra bonus, you can walk out onto the roof to what was once famous as Fiat's test track, complete with banked curves at both ends.

We were visiting not because of the art but because of the old test track on the roof of this magnificent former FIAT factory. The ride in the lift gave fabulous views of the sleek building and plam courtyard and from the roof the view over Turin and the mountains was stunning. The history of the test track made famous by film and car shows is interesting and you can visit it during the galleries‘ opening hours.

I was looking for somewhere within easy driving distance from our apartment in Crocetta, which had air conditioning, shops & culture all in one place. I enjoyed my afternoon in Lignotto, the old Fiat car manufacturing centre, which now houses multiple car parks, several hotels, a multiplex cinema, shops, eateries and a beautiful small art gallery. For car enthusiasts, there is also the original Fiat test track on the roof! What's not to love? The art collection belongs to the Agnelli family and is small but of high quality, containing works by Caneletto from the 17th century, along with pieces by Renoir, Modigliani & Matisse. The test track is as featured in the movie "The Italian Job". The shops were mainly more local brands, as opposed to the usual international brands. There is also a food hall with lovely coffee available for only €1, along with a supermarket. The centre is not, in my opinion, an absolute "must see", but I felt my visit ticked all my boxes for the afternoon in question.

This visit won't take long if you are already in the lingotto area. It's inside the shopping area and has the Agnelli family collection. It's quite small and won't take long to see. The main interest for me was the FIAT roof top track which showed the track where the FIAT cars used to be tested

Beautiful place in Lingotto area with panoramic Torino view from the top.
Few works by Modigliani, Matisse, Michelangelo and Picasso.
Staff is not so friendly but it’s definitely worth visiting.

The museum was a slight disappointment with fairly small collection but still worth a visit. The roof top race track is interesting to see and there you can also admire the architecture of this complex.
