  • Housed in the building of the old school of cavalry Command of the Royal Army, this collection of uniforms, vehicles, tracked vehicles, memorabilia and historical documentation is a showpiece of military museums in Italy. Firstly, the welcome from the friendly and accurate service, military personnel, and then maintenance and equipment, military and classic style, and because of this. The environments and the visit (all free!) really deserve a trip to Pinerolo.

  • I have been on weekends to visit this impressive Museum. Is very large and collects numerous army and in particular objects of the cavalry for over one hundred years. Is very interesting to retrace the steps of the history of Italy and of the world wars. The only flaws are actually the poor lighting and a temperature not really comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised, due to the possibility of letting the dogs, something not always permitted in other structures and the presence of a defibrillator shortly after entering, a sign of great civilizations. Is completely free of the visit and I highly recommend it!

  • Located in the Centre of Pinerolo is still run by army personnel. The property is well managed and the Museum stretches over three levels. On the ground floor trucks and carriages, on the first floor the uniforms and arms, the second with plastic toy soldiers from all over the world. All accompanied by an extensive collection of photographs dedicated to the cavalry and the many achievements over time.

  • Place where the story welcomes you with open arms. Currently the reception service is entrusted to staff of the Alpine Brigade Taurinense. Advice for military history buffs: you should visit in the afternoon as 3 hours are barely sufficient to examine the breadth of collections. Strengths, in my opinion, the maniscalcia Hall, the Hall of carriages, the section dedicated to Federigo Caprilli, the Hall of foreign and colonial Cavalry cavalries, without detracting from the individual exposures of Helms, weapons, swords and trophies. The only flaw the Hall on the colonial Cavalry: too dark and dimly lit. In general though, a unique experience and a splendid journey through time and values of chivalry.

  • 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.

  • Interesting from a historical point of view concerning the first and second world wars and the Risorgimento. Unimorfologico Museum. Of interest is the collection of toy soldiers depicting the reenactment of the battle of Waterloo.

  • 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
