  • All aimed at glorifying the baleful action of the Savoy, the warmongers short to send others to war, and to glorify a unification that actually was a huge work of prevarication, of cheating and corruption. With the Risorgimento were laid the foundations of the whole thing fraudulent that has characterized the entire history of the unification of Italy.

  • I was a Saturday in February with my 9 year old daughter, we attended a workshop on building carnival masks. The classroom was cute and functional, but the real find Alessia was our guide. He explained the history of the Museum with joy and commitment even if it was just the two of us to listen, too bad because the new layout it's catchy! Certainly this museum is just sponsored as well as his activities!! Looking forward to the opening of the parliamentary Hall, which unfortunately was closed!! What is lacking is the interactive part!

  • Museum little noticed, very interesting but too static and often boring ... the era of digital asks sadly something extra

  • 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!
