“beautiful place”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

as inside as outside. The building is of nice architecture. The museum is quite interesting, shows different moments of Italian history. On Sunday morning there was a market just in front of the building, also worth to have a look

“Roots of Italian Republic”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pleasant museum in grand old palace. Usual museum pieces but supplemented by short films (in Italian with English subtitles) putting the Risorgimento in the context of world events in the 19th century. Essential for us AngloCentric individuals with knowledge limited to the Napoleonic Wars and the British Empire.

“Interesting When You Have The Time”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is an interesting museum, especially the ballroom that houses the massive paintings of the revolution. However, is was hot in the museum and, although it had tons of items on display, not being able to read or speak Italian left me a little lost in the museum. I paid the fee (yes they make you pay a fee and sign a release that you won't sell your images) to take photographs in the museum. I didn't even take that many pictures and what I did take I'm scared to posts. If you have a lot of time to spare, which I did, then I would recommend going. However, if you are short on time and have to pick and choose carefully where you go, pass on this museum.

You could spend a week here but it is a lot to take in. Tremendous audio-visual explanations of how all the revolutions - French, German, Eastern European, Northern European & of course
Italian - all fed into each other. Puts the current Arab Spring into perspective.

“Too stuffy and filled with details for non experts”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

This should have been an interesting visit: yet there was too much, too many rooms, too dark very often to be able to read the explanations, and too few worthy explanations. It is geared towards showing everything, irrespective of value. There are tv screens and some videos to watch but the level is a little basic, and the presentation quite skewed, at times.

Interestingly enough when, after visiting this museum, we asked the staff for the origin of the national Italian flag, no one could tell us where it came from. Maybe the museum ought to do a better job!
