Museo Nazionale Del RisorgimentoCurrently Open [Closes at 06:00 pm]
National Museum of the Italian Risorgimento or Museo nazionale del Risorgimento Italiano is often regarded as the king of the 23 museums in the country dedicated to the Risorgimento or the Italian Revolution, whereby the different states, republics and duchies of the Italian peninsula were unified to form the Kingdom of Italy in the 19th century.It is the only one considered of major ‘national’ importance.
For fans of the Risorgimento, this museum is a dream come true because within these 30 chambers you will find not just an overview of the Unification of Italy, but a lot of context by way of the time before and after it, venturing into the histories of France, Austria and the UK as well. Since its restoration, the museum has employed cutting-edge innovations to make this rich collection very impressively organised and exhibited, with multilingual audio-guides as well as tours in Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, and Russian.
If time is limited in Turin, make sure this one features on your list! Gear up for lots of mementos and an extraordinary collection of political propaganda (Napoleonic, Garibaldian and some French as well), ads, prints, paintings and cartographs, paintings, posters, prints, documents, uniforms topped off by gorgeous ceilings in the rooms themselves. And in the midst of it all is preserved the first Italian Chamber of Deputies. The museum also houses the original manuscript of the National Anthem (the second copy, the first of which is in Genoa).
Some of the hallseven screen short films on historical landmarks such as the Industrial Revolutionand while the films arein Italian, the English subtitles are very coherent.
Don’t forget to stroll around in the Palazzo Carignano, irrefutably one of the most beautiful buildings in Turin!

One of my experiences in Turin. It’s like to walk the history. The building is amazing, and you get to know many important names in Italia’s history. I’d suggest everyone to see this place.
Mainly in Italian. Following tour guide who shouted at lot in Italian which made it difficult to concentrate and you kept trying to get ahead. People with guide seemed to be really enjoying themselves.
