|The museums of Turin cater to the most varied interests. On the one hand, the city of Turin has inherited some of the great collections from the Royal House. Few know, for example, that the Biblioteca Reale preserves the ruddy self-portrait by Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most famous drawings in the world. Then there are the collections of weapons, jewelry, tapestries, furniture and decorations, and the incredible Egyptian Museum. On the other hand, Turin also has a passion for modern and contemporary art – some of the greatest artists of the 20th Century have lived or stayed in Turin, and this is reflected in the Galleria d’Arte Moderna, il Castello di Rivoli, and in numerous other exposition spaces. And then there are the unusual and thus most intriguing collections – Turin offers a number of small museums, featuring such items as marionettes, fruit, and anatomy. Finally Turin has a museum for the future. We’re of course talking about the futuristic exhibits at the Museum of Cinema, held inside Turin’s great monument: the Mole. Here you’ll have the unforgettable experience of discovering both the traditions of the past and the exciting future of film. |
In order to best enjoy all these treasures, the city of Turin has created [b]Abbonamento Musei Torino Piemonte[/b] which allow you to visit more than 150 musems, palaces, castles, parks in Turin and in the region.
