  • This place is AMAZING. Must see it in Turin. Fabulous museum of cinema (not only for the people whose like movies but for all of us!). Additionally there is a panoramic lift-it goes upstairs the Mole and the view is magnificent. Ticket for the museum and for panoramic lift costs 15 euros. You can buy also the ticket for the one attraction if you would like to. I recommend buy tickets online, you won't be waiting in the queue for the tickets office.
  • 🇮🇹🗼🇮🇹 La Mole is definitely the symbol of Torino. You can find La Mole also on the 2 Cents EUR coin. From outside is impressive and it's worth a picture. To visit inside you have two options: To take the panoramic elevator till the upper terraces, to visit the Museum of the Cinema (or best options to do both). Elevator queue can be long in the weekend (better to book in advance). From the terraces you will have a 360 degree view of Torino. Restroom and a book shop are available before to take the elevator. Enjoy! 👍🏻
  • One of the best museums I have ever visited. Mostly focused on Italian cinema history (naturally) but a fantastic exhibition on film and cinema generally from the technology to the stories. The building really helps the presentation as the exhibition winds up the interior of this landmark. Get a combined ticket and ride the panoramic lift up through the exhibition to the top of spire and take in some amazing views of Turin. Book your ticket online in advance.
  • One of the major tourist spot in Turin. This architectural beauty was built with an idea of constructing a synagogue. But now it is National Museum of cinema. Very beautiful architecture. You can pay for a trip to the top of the tower, to get a view of the city. Much recommend to visit if you find yourself in Turin!
  • Best.Museum.Ever! All the history of cinema is presented in a comprehensive way. The way they structure the experience deserve 100 stars!!! I love the way they have minor rooms to present popular movies through time! Definitely gonna come back again for knowing more details about the techniques behind movies, the last time I was so overwhelmed that I didn't fully focus on the knowledge it brings.
