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
