  • Spectacular location of automobile history, not only in Italy, there are passenger cars with their innovation over the years, have brought that technological improvement that today we offer the most common small cars, also going for the super sports which have indelibly marked the history of motor racing in all its variety, from formula one, rally, etc.

  • My recollection of this museum goes to years of elementary school ... and I must say it has changed a lot since then, for the better! 3 floors, it offers a good insight into the history of the automobile, from the beginning up to the present, with an eye on Turin and its automotive industry. The exhibition begins with the first models of car and slowly continues with its evolution over the years, from the early ' 900, the time between the two world wars, the second world war and to the modern era. Many of the models, each of which is equipped with a plate with basic information. Throughout the Museum there are some postazion with tablets that provide insights on the corresponding area. It also offered a glimpse on the car industry and its allied industries, car advertising over the years, and a visit to a factory aboard a trolley type amusement park. Beautiful area on the racing world with all the Italian formula 1 car from its beginnings to the present day. Some rally cars such as the Lancia Delta integrale and the Alfa 155. Great idea to tell the story through film clips of the era. All texts are available in Italian and in English. Besides the various plaques with descriptions of vehicles, would be very useful to have a minimum of introduction of the historical context, the particulars of the different technical solutions etcetera, unfortunately devolved to various tablet, not all functional and not exhaustive. The final part, as the section on the future of the car, suffers much "mother FIAT". There is no trace of hybrid cars, electric or whatever and also the section on design shows only designer "made in FIAT" ... perfect!

  • Awesome place for car lovers, a must see in Turin. Tour takes about one hour and starts with first ever built car. As you go along you pass through the history of the cars. A great expo of the F1 CARS is also available.
  • one of the best museum i have ever seen. greatly organized, easy to follow path and very very interesting and entertaining. also for non-cars enthusiasts!
  • Don't try to enter the Museum one hour before it is closing. The dumb women working their will tell you that it is not possible to let you inside because they are not able to turn the ticket printer on. Probably a beatiful museum but with the most unfriendliest staff ever.
  • The museum was very large and interesting. It gave me a great idea of the history of the car and also kept me interested during it. One very good point about the museum is that it is interactive and contains many mods to features like QR codes if you want more information, and many videos complementing the cars. For tourists not from Italy, you can still go to this museum because all descriptions have a translation in English, and the English is actually very well written (not poorly translated).
  • Great place especially for people who know/want to find out how the cars work and how they evolved through time. Whole visit takes around 1.5-3hs depending on what do you really want. We spent a lot of time in the internal combustion engines exhibition for example.
