  • A part of Turin sometimes unknown even to Turin. Interesting guided tour. The Manager and his collaborators of the Museum despite great efforts can keep alive! Congratulations!

  • in this museum is done once a year visit by people in costume of the time of Pietro Micca who blew up along with the Gallery to not allow the invader to enter the Citadel ... what to say?? you are transported back in time and you feel like you live in a movie ... I hit I could though usually is never considered in the classical circuits of Turin perhaps because a little further back than the Center ... in my opinion worth it though ... and how!

  • The Museum is well organized, the result of a great work of the Director of recent years. The visit, including the wizard, is not too long, so you can't get bored. Very interesting to understand and partly to see how it unravels the underground Turin.

  • 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.
