The National Automobile Museum - Review

The National Automobile Museum, or Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile, is a roaring celebration of the most revered status symbols since the advent of the Italian economic boom: the car. It boasts of a collection including vintage Italian cars such as a Fiat from 1899 and a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost from 1914, in addition to racing cars from Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, it is located in one of the prettiest areas in ‘motor city’ Turin, Northern Italy.

Breaking new ground with its post-makeover amenities, the National Automobile Museum houses three floors with themes, sauntering down which you will be taken on a journey. The first recounts the evolution of cars, the second portrays the different social implications of how humans use cars (for example, as a sport in car racing) and the third gives you a glimpse into the future of cars.

Put your seat belts on for the ride because this museum is quickly carving its own niche amongst the most innovative cultural centres in Europe. Besides specialists, it’s also an absolute delight for those who consider themselves ‘non-car people’ with its concise and vivid descriptions and its classiest pieces displayed with aplomb.

Named after founder Carlo Biscaretti di Ruffia, the museum underwent a radical renovation and extension to reopen in 2011.The intelligent redesign combines rich Italian architecture with cutting-edge innovation, to showcase 200 cars among 80 automobile brands representing eight countries (Italy, France, Great Britain, Germany, Holland, Spain, United States of America and Poland).

The Piazza, a large square constructed for large-scale events like awards ceremonies, fashion shows, theatrical performances, is the most charming place to step out for a breather or perhaps indulge yourself in discussion with like-minded people. With a bookshop loaded with a wealth of automobile trivia, a souvenir shop that is real value for money and a cafeteria to boot, here’s an automobile fanatic’s dream come true!

The National Automobile Museum, Turin Reviews

Google+
  • This is a great museum, even for people who aren’t that into cars. Their app is wonderful, and it’s a really cool way to learn more about the gorgeous cars on display at your own pace (in English or Italian). I’d absolutely visit again!

  • Actually I wasn’t looking forward to going but knew my husband and grandson would like it. I was sooo wrong it was fantastic and you should definitely go. It’s not just a bunch of old cars on exhibit but a great history lesson with lots of interactive exhibits. The whole family will love it.

  • This is a must see for anyone fascinated or simply in love with automobiles. There are some very rare cars and each pavillion reconstructs an area putting the car at the centre of its hype. Watch out for wanting to go out and simply drive and redescover that pleasure of freedom.

  • A great site to see for all motor enthusiasts and petrol heads a like. Cars ranging from some of the first ever made all the way to future concept designs. I felt the muesuem lacked a little variety in terms of more modern cars but had a great collection of the older early cars on the roads. The place is very easy to navigate and designed across 3 floors with access via lifts or stairs.

  • Nice historic view of the motor car with plenty of examples on display. Interactivity through app is good and gives more insight on bits you're interested in. Runs the risk of being out dated very quickly in some of the more contemporary exhibits. I nice afternoon if you're at all interested in cars
