  • This is an excellent military history detailing a specific period of Turin's history. The information is presented very well with lots of models, maps, imagery and art to guide non-Italian visitors. The audio guide (available with the 3e entry!) Is very clear and goes into detail about every part of the exhibit. Visitors will get to enter the preserved siege tunnels of the famous battle. A very unique experience! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and just added to the great experience. I rexommend this place if you spend any time in Turin!
  • Absolutely fascinating place! One of Italy's hidden gems - as the only English speaking person there, I was lucky to have a private tour, giving an amazing insight into Turin's history.
  • I suggest this museum for everybody coming in Turin. I visit it twice and every time there was a guide explaining very well the historical background of the assault of the French soldiers to Turin. The pietro micca episode is the gate to history of Turin and Europe, military engineering and strategy, visiting the old underground galleries used for the defence of the city. Not suggested for claustrophobic people. It is possible to visit the museum with actors dressed as 1700 soldiers and civilians
  • This an excellent museum that describes a fascinating part of the city's history. Walking through the old tunnels is really fun.
