We were drawn into this museum because of a temporary photo exhibit advertised throughout the city but we had to go through a fairly dull historical perspective of Italian nationalism dating from the 18th century. Lots of rooms filled with documents, some displays and countless...More

Before my visit I ensured I got the meaning of the word Risorgimento right - unification. The time era covers history to the First World War. This museum is well suited to be in Turin; the city was the first Capital of the United Italy...More

I went to this museum excited to learn even more about this incredible period of time in Italian history (I am a tour guide in Italy, so I already have some background on the matter). Instead, I was confronted with thousands of incongruent objects, and...More

Mainly illustrations and some portraits, to be frank, most of them not of highest quality and very few artefacts. I expected much more to find in museum with such name in such historically rich country as Italy is,

This attraction is hosted in a Palace between 2 squares. There are 30 rooms prepared chronologically, each with a theme. There are documents and pictures and objects that are representative for each theme, from relations with French to 1st world war. Very rich and informative.

This museum holds a weath of information not just about Italian history, but also about European history. Unfortunately we could only spare less than two hours there, but one could easily spent a full day or more to absorb everything the museum has to offer....More

Well done, very interesting but mainly if you're passionate about history. It is a collection of art and documents related to the union of Italy. Not interactive at all. The building itself is very beautiful!
