Well worth the visit. The museum was extremely interesting and showed the lesser known history and heroes of Turin. The tour guide was unbelievably good, detailed, and seriously passionate. He responded to questions and explained in depth. The volunteers should be commended for their efforts...More

I would strongly advise that if you don't speak Italian, listen to at least part of the audio guide before you go on the tunnel tour as it is very difficult to keep up otherwise. We were given our guides and they were on the...More

This is a really interesting, slightly off the beaten track museum dedicated to the French siege of turin. If you are English speaker, make sure you arrange for an English speaking guide. Without guide you can’t go into the tunnels. Only takes just over an...More

It is sad that not more people visit this Museum. The problem might be that it is not very close to some of the other tourist attractions in the city. The staff and the guides are superbly knowledgeable and helpful. A model museum.

Found this by chance when. We wanted to go underground in Turin. It was only 3€. The actual museum is free and there is a free audio guide. The history is interesting and the staff, although their English wasn't strong, were more than helpful. Best...More

This museum is dedicated to the heroism pf Pietro Micca who saved the citadel. The museum and tours are staffed by volunteers and they cannot do enough to make you appreciate the museum and the tunnels and who took place in the 1700's. The entrance...More

This museum celebrates both the survival of Turin against the French and Spanish siege in 1706 as well as the sacrifice of Pietro Micca who died in the city's defence. It's a really small museum, three rooms and located on the site of the now...More
