“Superb Collection of Armor and Weaponry”
Review of Armeria Reale

Armeria Reale
Ranked #8 of 425 things to do in Turin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 July 2018

If you are touring the other sites in the Reale with a combination ticket or Museum Pass then you definitely will want to take a look at this part of the Museum complex. It has one of the most spectacular displays of armor for people and horses that you will see anywhere in Europe.

Beautifully arranged with descriptions in both Italian and English for almost everything in the gallery. Definitely worth between 30 and 60 min. of your time while sightseeing in Torino.

Even if I had one week for visit Turin, I would skip this visit. It is near my house, I have the annual 'Museum Pass', I frequently go to the 'Museo Egizio', Galleria Sabauda, to Palazzo Madama, Antichità, but very, very rarely to the Armeria or Museo del Risorgimento. Only for connoisseurs.

The heart of the city. This busy square houses the Royal Palace Museum, the tourist office, several churches and the Art museum. Plus, the open top tourist bus starts and ends here. There are fountains in the main square, plus often outdoor concerts. Always lively and good for people watching.

The House of Savoy's armour and arms collection fills two grand halls and is truly magnificent. The highlights include complete armours from Giovanpaolo Negroli, Pompeo Della Cesa and Kolman Helmschmied. Unfortunately, the documentation is not at the level these stunning works of art and craftsmanship would deserve. Your visit might be more rewarding if you speak Italian since only some of the items are briefly explained in English; for instance, expect a showcase full of Negroli masterpieces described only in Italian. Nevertheless, Armeria Reale alone is more than worth buying the ticket that also includes the Royal Palace, Sabauda Gallery and the Archeological Museum.
