Museum Of National Cinema - Review

What could be more blissful than a temporary suspension of reality? Museo Nazionale Del Cinema or the Museum of National Cinema in Turin, Italy, is made of the stuff of dreams forescapists and film lovers all over the world. A former synagogue that is now an Italian motion picture museum, it isfitted out rather peculiarly inside the Mole Antonelliana tower, a fascinating structure that is an architectural symbol of the city.

At the core of its collection lies the invaluable contribution of the historian and collector Maria Adriana Prolo that gave the museum the impetus to flourish by creating a sacred place where documents related to film could be preserved.The Museum of National Cinema is today an incredibly important contribution to cinema at an international level and is guaranteed to take you on a trip down the memory lane of cinema.The museum plays host to several festivals, the most prestigious of which is the Torino Film Festival.

A panoramic elevator with transparent glass walls within the museumruns in 59 seconds in a single span in a free fall without any intermediate floors, giving the viewer a breath-taking view of the whole museum from the top with the 300,000 posters on display, and the animation taking place in the dome. Watch out for dizzy people in that 8-people lift!

Housing pre-cinematographic optical devices, the museum showcases quaint and long-forgotten techniques like peepshows and magic lanterns for lighting that will leave you awash in a nostalgia you can’t even explain. Thoughtfully curated technologies from bygone eras as well as current times, stage props from early Italian movies and other film paraphernalia populate the area of the museum over several display levels linked by an elegant wooden staircase.

At the end of the stairs,the main central hall - called Temple Hall – lies just under the dome, impressively dotted with genre-specific cinema theme movie sets and comfy chaise-longues where you can watch historic movie trailers. La Dolce Vita begins here, friends.

Museum Of National Cinema, Turin Reviews

  • A fascinating journey into the history of Italian and international cinema. From silent movies to 360 movies. All sorts of quirky stuff and interesting information. Loved my time there, only downside was that they allow too many groups and school which take so much space, noise and just annoy the rest of the public. Why don’t do special time slots/a day for school groups? A part from that, it’s a must while in Turin!

  • Fantastic place. Very nice view from the top of all the whole city. That and only alone that, is worth the visit. The musium is fantastic , you can see the history of the cinema, the technology , and how the medium have grown thorough history. You need 3 hours at least to see everything. Worth the visit and don't miss the view.

  • This place is really unique. The exhibits cover the roots of film up to modern cinema. If you do the panoramic view be ready to ride straight up the middle of the museum in a glass elevator!

  • Amazing building and some great history exhibits. Would have liked to have seen more film props. Note that you should book the panoramic lift well beforehand if you want to avoid the 2 hour queue. We didnt and ended up missing it. I imagine if you're more of a film buff this place is worth an extra star. If you can get on the lift, maybe five!

  • A cinema with all the history of cinematography, is really beautiful to walk around and see the amazing history of film. It has some famous movies items on display. Also you can take the lift to go up the mole and have a beautiful panoramic view of the city.
