4.3
#9 of 46 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.

    Well structured Museum, which embraces nearly two centuries of history, from the birth of the Republics and captured the formation of the Kingdom of Italy, the first world war. Moving to visit the places that have seen Charles Emmanuel II become King of Italy to source such a Parliament made up of great men, a ruling class that allowed our country to align the European national States. A must see in dark times!

    Must visit; the building is notable and has a priceless collection of engravings and documents about the Italian unit. Who will bring me to October 14 to organize a guided tour sue Italian unity for members of the House of the Europe in Albertville. Remarkable; the old Senate of Savoy.

    Interesting museum experience that reconstructs the full epic of Italian Renaissance stage (pre and post also Unitarian). There are also original exhibits and the first Italian Parliament.

  • 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..
