The first, and largest, museum to pay homage to the risorgimento (Italian unification) movement in Italy, Museum of the Risorgimento is in one of Turin's most beautiful palaces. The original copy of Italy's national anthem, "Il Canto degli Italiani," is in the library, which houses a documentary archive and the literary works that helped to inspire the unification movement. Almost every room of the museum is filled with paintings, artifacts, and documents. In the multimedia room, watch films depicting the creation of many of Italy's Renaissance innovations, as well as the notable personalities of the risorgimento. You can ask for a touchscreen audio and visual guide at the main entrance. For Museum of the Risorgimento and beyond, use our Turin trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Turin vacation.

Loads of interesting stuff to look at and read about. The building itself is a historical icon. I learned a lot about the history of Italy.

The museum is filled with interesting trinkets, the building is beautiful, but as a museum it completely misses the mark. There is no explanation at all on the period other than this is room X, you have to guess what happened, why the artifacts are relevant etc... I'm a massive fan of history and went with the expectation to learn more about Italy's history... I learned nothing.
The building is beautiful, but as a museum it completely misses the mark. There are 30 rooms full of pictures with not explanation. you have to guess what happened. People just walk trough the rooms as it is very disappointing. I LEARNED NOTHING. A local told me that years a go was different and super interesting , now it seems that the technology ruined the aim of the museum as it so dependant of internet and apps.
