The Armory is part of the Royal palace Complex and has been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1997. The building itself was completed in 1762, and it is located between the Royal Palace and Palazzo Madama. The collection was placed on public display in 1837 and represents largely the private collection of King Charles Albert, although over the years it has been enriched by objects donated by multiple other collectors. It includes prehistoric, medieval and modern weapons, flags, as well as a massive collection of coins, medals and other decorations.

As part of the Palace tour, this armoury is well worth seeing and is part of the ticket, as well as the palace and the library.

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.
