  • From passionate could not miss the stage at the automobile Museum. In my opinion is very well done. The path is a real step back in time, at the dawn of the internal combustion engine and car manufacturers and not just, finally, on the way to the present day. There are vehicles of which I didn't even know existed. From the most elegant to the most technologically advanced. The racing Department then, is wonderful. It is almost magical. Unique cars in good conservation status. Truly beautiful.

  • Excellent visit to the Museum. We parked on a side street. The Museum is easy to navigate, for anyone who loves cars shows lots of detail, is didactic.

  • This museum is wonderful and breath taking for car lovers. If you are visiting Turin, you should see this museum. You can see the old and new models most of which were manufactured in Italy. In addition nearly 80 car brands are shown in this museum. You can see the Ferrari models for formula in a historical path. The entrance fee is around 18€. It would be better if english explanations was given more.
  • Lots of old cars and car history, but rather scarce from the educational point of view - you cannot even learn how the engine works and as such quite useless for kids. It also seems that the exposition was last updated before the appearance of hybrid and electric cars. On top of that absolutely not interactive, literally “do not touch what so ever” museum.
  • The nod to Detroit was nice with the Diego Rivera wall mural. Not as large as the one at the Detroit Institute of Art, of course, but recognizable immediately. And also several cars made in Detroit. An interesting place.
  • I am not a museum person but I really enjoyed my time here. Going through the evolution and engineering by Fiat was fascinating. I recommend that you visit the museum if you happen to visit the old city of Turin
  • Fantastic. History of cars from late '800, unique real cars' models. For sure one of the most impressive museums of cars in the World.
