  • Really well laid out and of undoubted interest this museum that traces the years of the risorgimento. Many rooms feature videos that tell the story of the Renaissance period in a really interesting and explanatory. I would say a must if you're in Turin.

  • Great content.. need more space and better side services as many other Italian museums..
  • Museum of inestimable value. Visit first subalpine Parliament reserve environments excitement and renews a sense of belonging to the motherland perhaps too dormant in most of us. Perfect exposure and spectacular architecture. A must-visit advisable for children who are preparing to study this important historical period

  • Interesting for fans of national history, but the exhibits are organized in a very traditional and not interactive, as it is used today. Beautiful palazzo Carignano that hosts it.

  • Inside the Museum there is the circular Hall that hosted the first subalpine Parliament between 1848-1860, there is a large room that was supposed to host the Italian Parliament and that was finished when the city was no longer the capital of Italy

  • A great opportunity to brush up on history and to understand how the world today was written at that time. Don't miss the Hall of Parliament cisalpino!
