It is advisable to buy the ticket in advance of 5 days (since it is more accessible due to the schedules).

The guide was very knowledgeable, engaging and engaging. She stayed longer than she should. Although he was around Turin from morning to six o'clock he still had a smile on his face that did not betray his tiredness. Unfortunately I don't have a good memory for the names but I remember perfectly that she was from Romagna and her name began with S. Experience highly recommended.
We went to visit the museum on Sunday 8th September in the afternoon, our very good and patient guide held up to the difficult questions of the children in the group. Two hours of abundant visit have flown by.
Excellent museum for tourists. The audio guide is easy to follow. We chose the 1 hour audio guided tour and we spent two hours in the museum. Amazing exhibits with detailed explanation.
Fast and practical to make tickets And above all it is very convenient to arrive and enter immediately!
