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.

“An unmissable Turin experience”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Turin has three world-class museums: this is one of them. It is in a splendid building, the Mole Antonelliana and we started by taking the lift to the top for the great view. Whether one is a film buff or not, there's so much of interest that it would be hard to leave in less than 3 hours, and one could easily spend a whole day here, particularly while the excellent Scorsese exhibition - which occupies several floors - is on. It is easy to find your way around, everything is excellently presented and there are fun interactive things to do. We really liked coming out of the lift on one floor (sorry, forget which) facing a camera, and seeing (and iPhone filming) ourselves 'on screen' on simulated 1920s film-stock as we clowned around.

Entry to both the lift and the museum were included in our 3-day Turin + Piemonte cards, 29 euros each, obtainable from the Tourist Information Office. 2-day passes are also available. If you are a keen attraction visitor (and your days don't include Monday when almost everything is shut, except churches which are free anyway) these cards are very good value.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Lots to see and do even if you aren't a film buff. Plenty of interesting memorobilia on display and everything in English as well as Italian. Nice to lay back on couches watching films on big screens in main hall when you need a break from walking.

“Enjoyable visit”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I didn't really realize how many American actors are of Italian ancestory! (Marlon Brando, Robert Dinero....) It was fun to visit. We initially went to get out of the hot sun, and ended up pleasantly surprised. After all the walking around and up seeing posters, pictures, old to new cinema gatchets - it was fun to go back to the main floor and relax in the seats and watch old film footage. The view from the glass elevator was great too.

“Great lift ride”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

I'm a sucker for a view and this one did not disappoint. The glass walled elevator is excellent but I do feel like I was cheating (would have preferred to walk but alas no such option). Views reminded me of the Duomo in Florence. 6 euro well spent.
