Differently from other museums, Pietro Mica doesn't have lots of portraits, statues ... The experience there is much more oral: the museum guides tell the story of the war between the French and the locals (not exactly Italian by that time) and the story of one of the war heroes, Pietro Mica. It's is really great if you understand Italian,... More

many visitors of turin are coming with wrong informations, all are meaning it is just a industrial town. Turin you must visit al least for 1 week. The Museo Pietro Micca is very helpful to learn morte about turin

The story, exhibit and audio guide are interesting and well done. However, We wanted to visit this museum primarily to see the underground tunnels. Unfortunately, you can only go with an Italian guide. The tour supposedly starts at 2:30, but the guide has been babbling on for over an hour, and we are still waiting for him to get to... More

A fantastic museum as well as a tour of the tunnels. Having not done much research we expected it to just be a tour of the tunnels, but the museum which proceeded them was really excellent, especially having a guide to explain the various exhibits. Our guide (who we think delayed his lunch to accommodate us) was passionate, informative and... More

We did not have a chance to take reserve a guide for this museum because we did not know what time we could be there. It is much better to get a guide in advance, since you cannot go into the tunnels unaccompanied. However, you can join a tour group for the tunnels, so here are some tips to time... More

This is the first thing we did when arriving in Turin and it really set up the whole time we were there, because of the history we receieved from this tour. We booked a tour with a guide beforehand, online,which was very easy and we did not regret it. Our guide was very knowledgable and charming and we could have... More

Whether or not you are a history buff, or into military history, this museum is an amazing testament to the enthusiasm of volunteers in Turin. If you need an english guide I would encourage you to ring up and ask for a tour time as they specifically arranged an english guide for us, and 4 others. It is not expensive... More

This is a fantastic little museum. I discovered the site while on TA and immediately emailed asking for an English speaking guide. Our guide Riccardo was so knowledgable he really bought to life the history of the Battle of Turin (1706) and Pietro Micca's heroic actions. The museum is very easy to find from Turin railway station, just cross the... More

Our morning tour of Museo Pietro Micca was fabulous, I had made a reservation for the guided tour in-advance, email communication with the museum was prompt, and on arrival at the museum our guide was waiting for us on the front steps. For the very small fee of three euros each we were guided around this very interesting museum for... More
