This is a beautiful museum that tells the story of the Italian Resistance near the end of World War 2. I don't know if there are other museums dedicated solely to telling this powerful and inspiring story. My only disappointment was that most (but not all) of this story was told only in Italian language. Nonetheless there's so much to learn here and it's a must-see for all who are interested in this history, regardless of native-tongue.

The highlight of this museum are the testimonials of the citizens of Turin who lived through the war. There are two main sections with this feature and both are subtitled in English. 1) There are number of spots throughout the museum with video recordings of a man and woman side by side recalling their experiences, whether as a child, peasant, partisan, soldier, housewife, etc. 2) There is another section organized around themes, which displays photos, documents etc. with narration. It was actually quite thrilling to hear the voices of the people who lived through this terrible time. These two sections are very accessible to English speakers. Even if you don’t speak Italian, I recommend wearing the headsets that come with your modest museum admission in order to hear their voices along with the translation. These people are probably mostly gone now; imagine hearing them speak! There are also a number of film displays that are not subtitled; hopefully this is something the museum is working on. At this museum, you do not get a timeline, a real understanding of the partisans, or a deep history. This museum offers you a different gift: you hear real people speaking in their own voices. Now: our plan was specifically to come to Torino for la Festa della Liberazione (Liberation Day). There are events all week throughout the city. It’s Italy, so... planning can be a little challenging. Example 1) On April 24, we saw a fantastic photo exhibit at the Archivio Storico (Historic Archives of the City of Turin) about Torino life during the war, which was promoted as being part of the April 25 events – but they were closed on April 25! Lucky we went early. Example 2) We went to the Resistance Museum early, planning to attend the 11:30 concert. We came out at 11:15 thinking we’d head to the concert, only to find a line of 200 people already waiting to get in. I think there was only room for 100, so we missed the concert despite our planning because no one warned us that we would need to get on a line. The Città di Torino (City of Torino) put out a booklet listing events for the week, if you can get ahold of it, and there are different listings online. But: You are on your own with planning and things might not work out the way you want. It’s Italy; you just need to go with the flow. This museum is quite special, so I highly recommend visiting it and coming during liberation week to participate in other events around the city.

After walking for a while to find the place, we ended up not going in as there was not much in English. Although after reading some of the reviews on here, I am wondering if it was a good thing walking g away.

World War 11 wasn't that long ago. There are still many people around who lived through it, or were born soon after. It's important for us all to learn from history and this museum provides personal accounts and contemporaneous film footage. It's probably best if you understand a little Italian but there are some English subtitles and you don't need language to experience the virtual reality of a bombing, or the air raid shelter.

Museum about Italy around the time of WWII (a bit before, during, and after) about the Resistance in Italy. I found it a bit bland. It's main attractions are people's recounts of what happened in their experience (videos in Italian with English subtitles), but I kept catching it in the middle of the tape and I personally didn't find it too interesting (I thought it would be more about current resistance and deportation). A worker followed me around and tried speaking English, which was nice, but I didn't understand most of what he said... I went to the underground part (you could go if a worker accompanied you), but I also didn't find it very interesting either... I didn't hate my experience there, but wouldn't go again.
