  • Beautiful, both the Museum that the Palace that houses it. Beautiful film room with movies about the Risorgimento. Not to be missed

  • Museum that allows you to breathe the nation's independence, especially in the Chamber of Deputies, full of charm. Many Visual representations (newspapers, books, artworks), a touch of excellence to videos that help to see the broad European context of the Risorgimento. Too bad they were so few, all in fact is highly compartmentalized, devoid of a clear common thread that helps the visitor ignorant of history to fully understand the events and their sequence.

  • It is often considered a "minor" Museum, but I think it's worth it. Gives an idea of how the political situation of turmoil during the period just prior to the Constitution of the Kingdom of Italy with the Savoy, the French occupation under Napoleon, and then Garibaldi, etc. very interesting papers and cartoons that even then they saved the rulers and the professional politicians. The building itself is worth a visit to see the "first" that, perfectly preserved, is a testimony of our history.

  • 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!
