  • Nice to see, excellent presentation made by rail, with the model, the contextualization of the historical period and the different characters. Great to visit the underground tunnels, where he died Pietro Micca. All accompanied by curious anecdotes.

  • great experience x know a very important historical events in Turin. Visit the tunnels built x stop the French advance to the conquest of the city during the Napoleonic period (and the "sacrifice" of Pietro Micca Museum is dedicated)

  • We visited the Pietro Micca Museum on a Saturday afternoon. A voluntary guide drove us in the path and ... He seemed to live in history. Recommended visit for families and congratulations to the guide that has been able to answer all questions and create an atmosphere of true interest.

  • This an excellent museum that describes a fascinating part of the city's history. Walking through the old tunnels is really fun.
  • A little known but Museum of inestimable historical value. Particular praise to highly skilled guides, really among the best present in the museums of Turin. The cost is minimal and you should leave an offer in order to keep the museum open

  • This museum is dedicated to the historical part of Turin, starting from its construction until the wars to defend the city. Explains all the means and strategies that were used then to fight and defend the city. The guides of the Museum involve all within and exhaustively explain everything is exposed. The best part of the Museum is dedicated to Pietro Micca and galleries! highly recommended!

  • Super passionate guides, the first part of the tour explains how did the siege and curiosities of the city at the time, in the second part there is a visit to the Gallery very interesting and addictive! Recommended! Very low ticket price

  • Excellent museum. Guided tour very interesting about the siege of Turin and on the figure of Pietro Micca. The Museum is run by volunteers since unfortunately the funds are scarce. However their love towards this part of history-very important not only for the city of Turin but also in view of the subsequent unification of Italy-is passed on to visitors. The visit to the underground tunnels.
