The Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to it vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup. The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. And the various areas inside the Mole Antonelliana were the starting point for the Swiss set designer François Confino who, with talent and imagination, multiplied the museum's itineraries. He created a spectacular presentation that offers visitors continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.

A must see if you are in Turin. You can take a lift up to the top of this iconic building of Turin and the views from the top are stunning. The museum itself is extremely well set out with great interactive exhibits. You need to give yourself an afternoon to do it justice and it is very child friendly!

The Cinema Museum in Turin is a great mix of history, technology and beauty. It's a great attraction at every age, kids included. And the Mole Antonelliana itself is a great monument, a must see.

You can buy the... More

Beautiful place , the space and ambience is worth the visit including the lift to the top. Go early and avoid the queues.A lot about optics and illusions , maybe it's difficult to actually display anything to do with past cinematic activity. Got the feeling that they needed to fill the space and a lot of stuff looked like it... More

We spent a couple of hours here and it was interesting, however we found the format a little hard to follow, it isn't clear how to get around so it all seems a bit random!.

The exhibition is housed in the Mole Antoniano and over 4 or 5 floors. It shows how films were made in the very early days up to the very modern technology used these days
