#9 of 62 in Museums in Turin
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.

  • The Museum will take you back in time to a well defined historical period, and with great detail. The world of the creation of our nation is well defined and detailed manner. The various motions of then well defined and clearly defined national uprisings. I particularly enjoyed the satirical cartoons of the time, in English, French and Italian, then were propaganda! We chose the date so that it coincided with the opening of the first Italian Parliament, excellently preserved and place of discussions of Cavour r Garibaldi .... and not cheap I would say ...

  • We were lucky in having the ability to access the subalpine Parliament Chamber of Deputies, and being accompanied by a charismatic Guide and prepared as Matthew! The visit was very interesting and exciting, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the Risorgimento period and to know the protagonists. Will be back for sure if we go back to Turin! Greetings from Sardinia!

  • Generally the Subalpine Parliament Chamber is visible only from a window inside the Museum. Exceptionally on the anniversary of the Declaration of the Statute has been open to the public and it has been possible to admire in all its glory. This is the only House to a European Parliament that still retains the original features of the 800 because the Hall was only used until December 1860. It was originally the ballroom of Palazzo Carignano and is the work of Guarini. of particular interest is the magnificent glass roof that gives light to any room. Very nice also the Museum as mentioned in my previous review.

  • The history is not really presented in a coherent manner although the exhibits are interesting. The debating chamber is a must see. More could have been made of this
  • Great museum a must visit on every people's bucket list.
  • The museum is good but honestly underwhelming considering the importance of the subject matter. Only the original parliament is really wotth seeing.
  • 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)
  • Very good place to understand the process of the creation of the Italian country
