  • A museum focused on Cavalry, but that ranges a bit on other fields to outline of military life. Three immense floors where you spend a few hours without getting bored. In my opinion a must for anyone who is a day in Pinerolo, especially that everything is free! Sin hours of enjoyment are reduced to a few hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

  • It's a dive in our history, with relics of heroes of the war and a look at our past without distortion. Honor to those who made the heirlooms Italy retains a nation of heroes. Interesting, it is worth a visit.

  • Too bad it's little known but it is almost impossible to find something similar around the world. Not only a vast collection of memorabilia related to Cavalry (and others) from all over the world and covering a period really wide but each of those memorabilia tells a story: stories of ancient life, military, elegance and too often by people who died in the name of values that today too trivially are set aside. A tenth of the things exhibited enough for days. I'd rather just think these stories are made available to all perhaps through technological tools as web guides or room with video projections of who was there. However it takes little to feel the presence of something important, something magical in its sad part. Honor and respect to those who want to preserve the memory of things that should not ever forget.

  • The historical Museum of the cavalry is an exhibition space located in Pinerolo, Turin metropolitan city, dedicated to the Italian cavalry. Is one of the most important European museums devoted to chivalry [1]. Housed in the barracks Principe Amedeo, then entitled to General Dardanus the decision to found a National Museum on Italian Cavalry dates back to 1961, while the facilities were opened in 1968. The dating of the artifacts in the Museum starts from 1845. The collection is very rich. Inside exhibition spaces are preserved horse harnesses, weapons, transportation (carriages and armoured vehicles), military banners, historical specimens of Italian flags, paintings, photographs, prints, military decorations and medals. Are also displayed uniforms militarioriginali whose dating starts from the Risorgimento and is up to date, and artifacts of the two world wars and colonial conflicts. Of great importance is the documentation collection. Inside the Museum are kept the 10,000 volumes forming the military library the Exhibition Centre, and 200 volumes of the library of the horse. Documents dating from the 15th century begins and ends in the 19th century. There is also a photo gallery and a DVD library. Within the museum complex are located a shrine of heroes and a consecrated Chapel to the patron, Saint George.

  • Very interesting, and beyond belief, Museum inside a beautiful building near downtown. Very beautiful exposure of military means on the first floor, and equally interesting that devoted to weapons, uniforms, stories ... the other two, all well explained by comprehensive tables. Also the section on sympathetic figures and miniatures. Small note: admission is free. Certainly worth a visit
