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.

Housed in the main landmark of Turin , the Mole Antonelliana, which is a large building, with a huge dome. Most people go up to the Panoramic Terrace first, from which you get a very good view of Turin. The glass lift takes you up through the centre of huge dome to the top of the dome.
The museum is over 3 floors & gives a very good history of movie film, right from the beginning.

Beautiful building with an interesting lay out. There is an elevator that takes you up for a fantastic view both inside and out. (You have to experience it to know what I mean). The loungers in the main room with big screens are great to lay back on after a lot of walking and just let the movie clips take you away.
The spiral stairs around the main room had a special display honoring Martin Scorcese. That was very interesting...this was a temporary display...don't know how long it stays.
Then there are various rooms dedicated to different genres of films. Could have spent a whole day in this place.
The restaurant bar is beautiful with tables that change color slowly and subtly and have video monitors built into each person's spot at the table. Very cool!

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.

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.

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.
