What a pity
Jul 2020 • Couples
What a shame, a museum that exhibits so much and explains so little. Baldy organised with little to no explanations. Definitely not worth it, especially for foreigners. Unless you get a guide maybe.

A History-heavy museum with excellent English audio guide for the Risorgimento 'uninitiated'
May 2019
With the English audioguide in hand, I was able to triple my knowledge about Italian unification.
Great informative exhibits and descriptions that will keep kids & adults interested.
I easily spent 3 hours here which does not have to be everybody's choice of course.
Again the audioguide is key to hit the highpoints and move on.

In need of a refresh
Sep 2019
We were really disappointed by this museum.

The Risorgimento is such a great story with fantastic characters but the museum failed to bring them to life. They can do so much better than filling room after room with clippings and articles and some dated videos. The only info in other languages was an A4 card in each room.

It felt dated compared to the other palaces, Venaria and the Egyptian museum which we visited in Turin. Maybe this is the next one on the list to get a refresh and audio guide.

The upside is that the museum is in a beautiful building.

Italian history for young and old.
Sep 2019
This museum impressed me because of its building and its presentation of the history of Italy. Full of light and spacious. Overwhelming detailed history of the resurgence of Italy in the past two centuries plus.

too bad!
Jul 2019 • Couples
This museum was disappointing. A huge building, thus many many rooms and halls to go through, chronologically from the French revolution until Italian unity; but just too many objects and pictures and maps, often too high on the wall, thus impossible to read; and nowhere a good text to explain really what happened from 1789 to 1945. One has the impression that you need to have gone to school in Italy, in Turin, in which case you know all the history and you just get to see the objects illustrating it. But for a non-Italian, the history (who does what when and where?) is missing! The video displays are subtitled, but the pace is way too rapid for the rich content we should hear. Too bad, w

Verrry interesting.
Jun 2019 • Solo
The building in which this museum is housed is worth the visit alone. The whole history is exceptionally well presented and easy to follow. If you have no background knowledge to Italy's unification, it will be very confusing. More explanations in English would help as most tourists have rudimentary English as opposed to very little Italian. Very detailed exhibits. If you are a history buff, you will love it.

Resistance museum

Using videos and interactive technonology,this museum gives a substantial picture of life under Mussolini,and the resistance to the power at the time.

Very interesting... but come prepared!
Sep 2018 • Couples
I really enjoyed the Museo Del Risorgimento, it collects a huge amount of interesting objects from the key period in the formation of today's Italy.
However, if you don't have a solid knowledge of the period beforehand (and I was guilty of that!), you probably will be a bit lost for context. So I would suggest you read up about the Italian Risorgimento before you go!
The building itself is magnificent and worth the visit.

Great... if you understand Italian
Aug 2018 • Couples
The museum exhibits are plentiful but not varied and, as a non-Italian speaker, it is very difficult to follow the stories and themes. An audio guide would have helped a lot but not available. The staff are also quite unhelpful. The building it’s self is beautiful and worth a walk around, however if you don’t understand Italian, I’d suggest giving the museum a miss.
