Turin is home to legendary car makers Fiat and Alfa Romeo, so it's only fitting that it's also home to Italy's National Museum of the Automobile.
The Museum of the Automobile (Museo dell'Automobile) was founded in 1932, making it one of the oldest automobile museums in the world. It officially opened in 1960, in the building it still occupies, which was designed specifically for the museum. It was extensively renovated and expanded in 2011.
The collection contains nearly 200 cars, including some of the first cars made in Italy – an 1896 Bernardi and an 1899 Fiat – as well as racing cars made by Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. There are cars from eight different countries on display, plus an extensive library on automotive history.
The National Automobile Museum is located near the Po River. The museum is open Mondays from 10am-2pm; Tuesdays from 2-7pm; Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from 10am-7pm; and Fridays and Saturdays from 10am-9pm. Admission is €8 for adults, €6 for children ages 6-14 and seniors over 65.
