Let's be clear. There is nothing "average" about the superb location, the unparalleled view, but... come on...this is a museum that perfectly reflects the Piedmontese "living in understatement" motto. We live in the age of interactive media, when you go to a museum you are...More

There is a little bit of everything from history of mountain climbing. As well as small exhibition part dedicated to Torino Olympic Games and also Exlibris. But best part of the museum would be going to viewing platform, which is allocated on the very roof...More

It's located up to a hill at Turin. It costs only 10-12 Euro from the old city (or you can even walk). The exhibitors are fair but it worth even for the view of Turin :)

In the museum almost everything is about the life in the Alpes, mainly rich people during their vacation. Not much about the people who lived on the Alpes. You can also appreciate a magnificent view of Turim from the top floor. For me, it was...More
