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.

The cinema museum is an interesting visit; not too impressed by the somehow long section on the optics as science base of movie taping. Inside you can find interesting approach on “concepts” and themes. A couple of hours is enough , to me.

Like most people, I enjoy a good movie. I don't have to know who, why, and how it's made. Having said that, I found this museum interesting but a little disjointed. There didn't seem to be any logical theme to the route you took through...More

we only took the panoramic lift to the top of the Mole (in the late 19th century the tallest building in the world). The glass lift travels inside the cone shaped brick building slowly to the top with dramatic music playing. You can see the...More

We really enjoyed this. There is a truly special exhibition about the history of photography as a precursor to film, including magic lanterns of all kinds, which alone was worth the entrance fee. The exhibition on animals in film was also excellent. There are little...More

Wasn't sure about what to expect here but what a comprehensive collection of film related artifacts, cameras, posters, costumes etc. I definitely recommend to anyone but especially if you are a film buff! The poster collection is AMAZING.

Ok we are not cinema buffs but we thought we would like to know more about the history of the cinema. We found this to be a very confusing place, not helped by hoards of screaming children running about from one exhibit to the other...More

We enjoyed a nice visit to the National Cinema Museum. The museum is actually quite a great repository of general global cinema - I had expected to see more classical Italian cinema. Overall, a good museum and worth a visit if you're in Turin or...More

Visiting the National Cinema Museum is, unfortunately, disappointing. In my experience, these types of museums build their narrative either around keepsake objects, or around experiential stimuli. At the National Cinema Museum I struggled to see original pieces used in movies (e.g. costumes, masks, cameras used...More
