History Museum Museum
The first, and largest, museum to pay homage to the risorgimento (Italian unification) movement in Italy, Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento is in one of Turin's most beautiful palaces. The original copy of Italy's national anthem, "Il Canto degli Italiani," is in the library, which houses a documentary archive and the literary works that helped to inspire the unification movement. Almost every room of the museum is filled with paintings, artifacts, and documents. In the multimedia room, watch films depicting the creation of many of Italy's Renaissance innovations, as well as the notable personalities of the risorgimento. You can ask for a touchscreen audio and visual guide at the main entrance.

  • This is the Piedmontese point of view of the Unification (Risorgimento) of Italy. It is excellent in laying out the history. The audio guide in English is very good and you can get detailed explanatio...  more »
  • A lovely building. But room after room of paintings of battles and uprisings throughout Europe with no sense of a narrative that I or my wife could make out. There were artefacts in each of the rooms,...  more »
  • The collection is really big and I suppose it's enjoyable for someone interested in the subject but I personnaly found it boring and very long...  more »

  • Nice museum about a brief part of Italian's history ("Risorgimento"). They are the only ones in Europe to maintain a parliament from an absolutist regime, which is quite nice. Anyway, I don't enjoy the way the museum shows the Risorgimento (e.g. a museum on the same subject in Napoli would be completely different)
  • If you want to learn more about history of Italy, you should visit this museum. There are 30rooms at same level and in some rooms there are TV screens on which you can watch a short story in Italian with English subtitles.
  • Well worth your time if you know absolutely nothing about the organization of the separate Italian states. I knew nothing and it was extremely worth my time.
  • Good specialist historic museum at the site of Italy's first parliament.
  • Great content.. need more space and better side services as many other Italian museums..
