Owner description: The Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to it vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup. The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. And the various areas inside the Mole Antonelliana were the starting point for the Swiss set designer François Confino who, with talent and imagination, multiplied the museum's itineraries. He created a spectacular presentation that offers visitors continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.

This museum is an absolute must-go for the foreign traveler. Not many know that the Mole Antonelliana was originally designed as a Jewish Temple, but i didn't make it as such for the building cost was way too high for the little Jewish community of Turin. So it was then sold to the city, and remained unused for a long time until it became the current Museum of Cinema. Don't miss the elevator!

This is Torino's iconic building challenging Paris's Eiffel Tower. A wonderful display inside of the history of film... and indeed one of the most fascinating and well-displayed museums I have ever visited.
Excellent cafe in the basemetn too. And you can take a lift up to a dizzying high point in the tower, whence, on a clear day, a wonderful prospect over the city.

This is a must, take the museum visit and the panoramic visit, really impressive museum over the entire building height, they have a temple room with large screens and you can lay on a sofa type bed with the sound coming out of the side of the sofa, really good.

Located within the historic Mole Antonelliana this is a truly unique museum and considered to be one of the best Cinema museums in Europe. You have an option to just visit the museum or to include also a ride up to the viewing gallery. Take the latter. The views of Turin from the viewing gallery are just superb!.
