This small museum is not to be missed. It is dedicated to a single but important moment in Torinesi history - the siege of Turin, and the contribution made by a simple man (I won't call him a soldier - more like a farmer) when the French breached the city defences and entered to citadel. An educational visit well supported... More

I visited the museum as part of the underground tour of the city of Torino, amazing to see how the defense was organized, worth the visit

Differently from other museums, Pietro Mica doesn't have lots of portraits, statues ... The experience there is much more oral: the museum guides tell the story of the war between the French and the locals (not exactly Italian by that time) and the story of one of the war heroes, Pietro Mica. It's is really great if you understand Italian,... More

many visitors of turin are coming with wrong informations, all are meaning it is just a industrial town. Turin you must visit al least for 1 week. The Museo Pietro Micca is very helpful to learn morte about turin

The story, exhibit and audio guide are interesting and well done. However, We wanted to visit this museum primarily to see the underground tunnels. Unfortunately, you can only go with an Italian guide. The tour supposedly starts at 2:30, but the guide has been babbling on for over an hour, and we are still waiting for him to get to... More

A fantastic museum as well as a tour of the tunnels. Having not done much research we expected it to just be a tour of the tunnels, but the museum which proceeded them was really excellent, especially having a guide to explain the various exhibits. Our guide (who we think delayed his lunch to accommodate us) was passionate, informative and... More

We did not have a chance to take reserve a guide for this museum because we did not know what time we could be there. It is much better to get a guide in advance, since you cannot go into the tunnels unaccompanied. However, you can join a tour group for the tunnels, so here are some tips to time... More
