  • If you want to get into the spirit of a city, you have to know where to go x take this essence. If you understand, that makes you a traveler, not a tourist. This is not a Museum, it is the story of Italy. If you're visiting Turin also x 2 days (poor you ...) You have to see this. 1 hour, max 1 and a half hours, and you'll understand because we are made this way. and because you're surrounded by Baroque buildings, numerous as in any other European city. see you ...

  • All Italians should go at least once in their life!! Very nice and organized around the history of our nation step by step until the unification of Italy.

  • I love museums, but this one was rather dull. Most of the exhibits are prints and documents. The assembly chamber of the first parliament is the highlight.

  • 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!
