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.
