  • Amazing Museum in a mammoth décor. We enjoyed the visit. However, a lot of noise and world. Rental of audio guides is strongly advised to fully enjoy the place. We have not had the opportunity to enjoy the panoramic view. Once again, too many people (more than an hour of waiting under the Sun to be able to take the elevator) NB there is a queue for panoramic entry and another for the Museum alone.

  • It is a museum not to be missed, it is exciting and surprising. Very pleasant to do even when there isn't a movie fan.

  • Quite a long journey around this museum with plenty to see, but they provide lounger chairs for you to lie in and relax! How amazing is that, and cinema to view while relaxing (naturally). It's a great fun place to visit with exhibits from film and cinema from all over. The building is great too. Definitely worth a visit. I like the lift that goes to the roof through the centre of the museum. Very novel.
  • This is one of the main Tourist sites in Torino. The tower is the highest in town and had to be redesigned a few times during it's construction. The place today holds the National Cinema Museum which is incredible. You can see old movie projectors and see the cinema evolution. It's a must see place. Take the elevator up the tower and get a spectacular view from the city as well. Make sure you include this option when buying the ticket.
  • Got there 5-10 minutes after they stopped selling tickets (i.e. one hour before closing time at 20:00) and while asking the supervisor by the entrance if it would be possible to leave the ticket money with the cashier (who was still there) to enter in their system the day after and let me in anyway (something I have done many times in the past) not only they refused to do it, but the security guard aggressively moved in my direction and said twice that everything was closed and that I had to leave immediately. It turns out that he was lying, the ground floor area with a café, bookshop and small exhibits was still open until 20:00 so I decided to stay anyway. This security guard then started stalking me everywhere I went in this public area as if I was doing something irregular - I have never seen something like this in any other museum in the world, they did their best to make me feel uncomfortable but thankfully it didn't work as I just didn't care about their pettiness. Apparently it's a good museum, but my experience here today was definitely appalling
  • A detailed and jam-packed museum for all to enjoy. Extensive detail will have you staying for hours but the simple design will prevent you from getting lost. Interactive sections and the best parts and the elevator was a lot of fun.
  • It's a perfect museum because it has a hood way of design. To understand a cinema first you have to understand a movement chemistry photography than you can think about costumes sound and script... The museum gives you that experience very well and without borinf you. Definitely a place to go. Also if you are Architect or student of architecture visit that museum because it's good to see common working styles between different disciplines.
