Primarily of interest to Italians. As an American who does want to learn more about the Unification, a book or Wikipedia would work better. This is primarily room after room of portraits of people I don't know.

This museum tells the story of the unification of the various states on the Italian peninsula and their liberation from foreign domination.

The items on display are arranged mostly chronologically, with each successive room presenting a newer episode in the struggles. Towards the end of the sequence of rooms are a few which present information thematically.

There is a lot to take in at this museum - particularly for an overseas tourist. But that’s ok, because much of it was in Italian and inaccessible to me.

The summary cards in English (one for each room) contained a good amount of information about the exhibits in the room - and not too much. The short videos on screens dotted through the museum all had English subtitles. Unlike some other reviewers, who felt that the wider European context was missing, I felt that it was well integrated into the story.

My review may reflect my own enthusiasm for 19th century European history, as much as the museum itself, but I found it enthralling.

This museum takes a very dramatic and interesting story, then turns it into a boring and uninformative experience. The actual events of the risorgimento and what gave rise to them are drowned beneath a mass of other things with videos on the whole sweep of european history from the end of the middle ages. There are hundreds of small pictures and exhibits, but with only small labels and no clear explanation of what they represent. It needs a thorough reorganisation. Perhaps a look at the Museo dello Sbarco in Catania would help improve it.

Until seeing this museum, I had put visiting Risorgimento ( meaning the battle to unite all of Italian lands to become a country ) museums on the no-go list. I figured if I wanted to learn about it, I would eventually read about it on Wikipedia ( which I think I did and can’t remember what I read ). I also had seen bits and pieces about it in other non- Risorgimento museums. This museum was supposed to be a real palace with some very impressive rooms. So we went. There were less rooms than I even saw online of impressive rooms. Not bad, but in that regard could have been better. Maybe they did not include all rooms on the tour. But I wasn’t terribly disappointed, ultimately, because I surprisingly became fascinated with the actual story of Italy’s birth, which was well documented. I love history. So I guess I should not have been surprised. If you are a history buff, this may be your cup of tea. If not, it’s a nice building, with a few impressive rooms including the very impressive Hall of the The Chamber of Deputies of the Subalpine Parliament. If you don’t know what that is, don’t feel bad. Neither did I. It was the upper house of the legislature of the Kingdom of Sardinia. I forgot this until I just looked it up. I probably forgot it 10 minutes after I read it, but all the stuff I learned while I was there was fun and informative at the moment. And I fully comprehended the process of the evolution of the state of Italy. Anyway, it‘s close to most everything else you want to see in Turin and it’s definitely worth a gander if you have 2 or 3 days there.

Museo Nazionale del Resurgimiento is located in the Carignano Palace, in the center of Torino, the main city in Piedmont. It is the museum, where you can learn about the modern history of Italy and the creation of the modern state. Pitifully, almost all information is only in Italian language and there are a lot of individual objects. The best part for understanding something (If you are not Italian) is seeing some of the videos. So, you can learn a lot about the last centuries of the country, but only seeing videos (it can be improved). Also, the two most interesting rooms are the old parliament of Torino (very nice) and the big paintings of the end of the exposition (also very beautiful).

A magnificent museum which brilliantly explains the Risorgimento in a building where so much of it happened. It is remarkable how much stuff has survived, particularly the cutting satire of many of the posters and pamphlets. For the history buff you could easily spend a whole day here, and it sheds light on a part of European history which for non-Italians is usually pretty hazy. It certainly helps to be able to read Italian - and in the early sections, French. A few video presentations in English, too. This is a museum where you have to follow the historical sequence, though you can of course skip bits which interest you less.

Museum full of maps, artistic materials and historial documents, I'm sure most of them interesting and of great value, but without any didactical comments, chronograms or explanations.
Difficult to appreciate if you are an Italian who knows the history of your country from school but impossible for the average European who wants to know about Italy or for school groups.
It needs modernization and also comparing with what was happening in other European countries at the time to illustrate and get a wide view of the period.

We found it fascinating, even on our second visit.
The museum depicts not only the story of Italy's unification (or reemergence, as it is called in Italian), but also the European situation in the 19th century leading to it.

Loads of interesting stuff to look at and read about. The building itself is a historical icon. I learned a lot about the history of Italy.

What a shame, a museum that exhibits so much and explains so little. Baldy organised with little to no explanations. Definitely not worth it, especially for foreigners. Unless you get a guide maybe.
