I really enjoyed this museum. It was totally empty when I went (at around 3pm on a Tuesday). It was super easy to get around and see the exhibits. I did not get the audioguide and relied on the information cards. They are very good as well as the videos. However, there is A LOT of information. As a historian,... More

Americans are surprised to be told that their country is nearly 100 years older than Italy, although in fact Italy's current borders were set as late as 1919, when Austria lost Trieste and its hinterland at the end of World War I. The story of how a patchwork of what had been city states, with Papal governance in some areas... More

Perhaps not high up on the list to visit for foreign tourists. But worth popping in if you are in the city for a longer period. Not over expensive and well laid out.

If you really like the history of Italy then you may enjoy this museum which explains in a good way all the phases which have brought Italy to be a real nation. The place is full of many interactive areas and very accurate from an historical point of view. I have nonetheless found it a bit boring

As a non-Italian, this museum does a very good job and letting me know the history of the Kingdoms coming together. Each room has hand held placards in various languages for visitors,

You will get a great deal more out of this museum if you find out something about Italian history of this time before you visit. The story of the risorgimento is told in pictures and artifacts from the time before , during and afterwards. Much too much to take in in a single visit but probably a lot more than... More

The redbrick "back" half was designed by Baroque master architect Guarini. It is a masterpiece. The facade dances. The effects of light in the oval portico on the ground floor are truly sublime. There is a magnificent staircase that you need to do the tour to see. And it is this half of the building that houses the original ballroom-turned-parliament... More

This museum charts the military, political, social and cultural forces that combined to cause the states of the Italian peninsular to unify into one country in the middle of the nineteenth century. It starts with the French Revolution and the spread of notions of citizens rights and representative government and ends with Italy on the eve of World War One.... More

The marvellous Palazzo Carignano has two distinct facades, one to be seen in Piazza Carlo Alberto and the second rounded one on Via Accademia delle Scienze, which is the entrance to the museum. All aspects of the exterior are highly decorative and attractive. The history covered within is momentous and is described using a myriad of exhibits. These include multitudes... More
