  • I don't know if I should add more, in terms of engines I know little enough. But the curiosity behind every single car, home, pencil and mind from which they were born these jewels may be glued even someone completely alien to this world. It would take a whole day but the visit may be completed quickly in 3 hours.

  • For a car enthusiast and especially of history of the automobile, is a must. The appeal related to the history of this museum we breathe now and enchants the visitor ... ... atmosphere and suggestive choreography affect and excite .... ... a skilful scenographic direction takes you through the history and evolution of the car, so everything's fine and wonderful? Unfortunately no! Who knows and is a little documented about the subject has, after the first rooms, a first of vexation and then anger and it's natural to get a question: but this is typically Italian and European Automobile Museum in particular, or is almost exclusively a celebration of Fiat-Alfa Romeo? And the spear? There are 6 in all! Missing car that have revolutionized with their technological innovations, the world of four wheels. If I remember correctly there is only the BMW Isetta, very few Mercedes ... .... I understand everything, even erase the memory of the Lance, but was a source of pride and an Italian pride that in Turin should not be ashamed of, and that nothing would remove to new business strategies aimed at enhancing the Group's other brands; But history is history and delete it sottacendola not a good operation. I conclude with a note: in the big and beautiful room F1 sports car is present, their goodness, the Lancia D50, donated, along with the other 24 formula 1 and the D50 D sports prototype to the projects, to the workers and equipment of Squadra Corse Lancia, Ferrari without having to change a single lira. The D50 was a winner right away so much so that in 56 won the World Cup with the prancing horse without major changes, go read. Well, the D50 exhibited at the Museum not only is exposed with the Ferrari logo, but for further scarring the caption reads more or less: "launches F1 D50 breaks the mold and amazing. But to win, the first Launches of F1 should wait for the Ferrari. Insult to injury ... ...

  • 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.
