  • Those who come to Turin puts it at the top of the schedule and will not be disappointed. Unnecessary spend words about this museum which, after the last setting, it is definitely a gem of the world Museum landscape. What convinces further will be the context: the most beautiful expression of the Piedmontese Baroque with, on the doorstep, the town square that will enchant you. Don't miss the nearby museo del Risorgimento,

  • Amazing collection of artifacts and antiquities. Plan on spending at least two hours here if you like browsing museums. The self-guided audio tours are good, but test your device before you enter the museum to ensure it is charged and working. Photos without flash are permitted unless otherwise marked.
  • A good impressive collection of Egyptian archeology. The museum is located at the center of Torino and is very friendly to visitors of all ages. The electric tour guide is easy to use and interactive with the children. The museum has lost of benches around so you can sit down and enjoy the experience. There is also a cafeteria for taking a short coffee break if you feel like it. Apart from the permanent exhibits there is a changing exhibition is on the 3rd floor.
  • The price of 13€ is small compared to what you have the chance to see. Audio/video guide is also included in this ticket price. The helpful staff is there to help you if your headphones don't work or something similar. Note that you can't enter the museum with a backpack - only small handbags are allowed. It is allowed to take photos, just make sure it's without flash. You can easily lose 3/4 hours and will only see a half of the subjects on display. Highly recommended.
  • The second largest Egyptian museum I world. I really loved it because at the moment it is not that sage ti travel to Egypt but it offered me an insight of the ancient Egyptian. The new layout and organization improved the visit experience and the understanding of this great people
  • In general it's a fantastic museum. The visit starts at the top and goes through the bottom (where is the King's room). Sometimes the path to go was not clear and we "walked in circles". Can be a bit crowded inside and with a big entrance queue (case of Easter holiday).
