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.

Not afraid of heights? Take the elevator to the viewing deck for a view of the city of Turin. Then visit the excellent cinema exhibition and museum. One of the best surprises that should be a must see when visiting Turin.

Set aside a few hours so that you can sit in the main area and watch the creatively curated film clips, then walk through the permanent exhibition without rushing through.

The museum is well organized and very interesting, however its accent is on Italian cinema, and for tourists may appear a bit boring. It still contains the classics. Anyway, it is a nice 2-3 hour break from the hot summer in Turin, or perfect for a rainy day getaway.

A must see, if only for the ride in the lift and the view of the surrounding mountains. All the exhibits were interesting and well laid out within the building.

A great collection of cinema history, science, art and memorabilia. Great for anyone with an interest in cinema. The building it is housed in is also very worth seeing. After exhausting yourself by wondering through the exhibits, you can relax in a lounger surrounded by cinema screens and other amazing things to watch, or eat in the in-house Eataly restaurant.

It's the perfect place in any time with any weather: if it's cold and rainy you can visit this wonderful monument in the inside where you find the national cinema museum. It's rich and interactive; very interesting and fun at any age. But if it's sunny and clear you can also use the incredible glass lift and reach the top... More

It is an interesting museum which offers some interactive displays. Most of the material relates to the Italian Cinema industry however some parts showing the evolution of cinema in general is fascinating. Worth visiting off season as during peak season it is very crowded.
