Just as wonderful as much of the art inside it, so much a part of the absolute joy of this museum is the building it is housed in. It has been built/added on through different centuries. The medieval art is spectacular with thoughtfully selected pieces that showcase the best of the time without overwhelming. The panorama view from the north tower was a highlight for me: beautiful views of the city with buildings dated for your reference. The second floor was largely ceramics, et al, not my cup of tea, so we breezed through this but for those interested in this area, much, much to see. The next highlight was the Renaissance art. The rooms in which they hang are great, particularly the central room (name escapes me at the moment, but you'll know it when you see it). Wonderful paintings in unique Baroque decorated rooms. Très chic! And the gardens in the moat are nice. All in all, with all that Turin has to offer, this was a nicely selected museum for us, especially given its central location next to the Palace.

Nice palace, with beautiful art gallery and lovely garden full of wonderful flowers. Worth visiting but take some time because there are too many interesting things to see. 3 levels of art, one level with panoramic view and a level with the beautiful garden. 10 euro the entrance but ask if there is any extra gallery in that perioud inside the Palace.

Rivaling the Palace museum next door, the Madama has a LOT to see, even if it's on a slightly smaller scale. Like next door, it's worth seeing the beautiful palace rooms and building even if the displays aren't to your taste. There is a lot of ecclesiastical art, but don't let that put you off. Buy the museum card to get the best rate.

We paid €10 each pp to enter this palace, and this is in the Castello Square and is a based on the different historical ages and uses of the Palace. The basement is the Gardens (not open) and the medieval floors and so it moves up. You find displays of glass, works of art, ceramics. Plus the Palace and decorated rooms. The stairs are located in a circular tower and each leads to a different floor and a different era.

There was a permanent collection of artifacts mostly from Italy, from several centuries. One of the changing exhibitions was a very small but interesting exhibition of perfumes! On a Sunday afternoon one had to queue for some fifteen minutes to get into the museum. The palace itself is really worth seeing.
