If you are into history this a must to visit to dive into ancient and modern Torino. They have a really nice permanent exposition as well as selected temporary exhibitions. Some of the pieces are really exquisite and some of the rooms will make you bounce in time. The coffee as a good view with huge windows making a really comfortable snack break. Be sure to go all the way up to the tower and have an amazing view of the center, try to make it for sunset!
We have a 9 month old and this was a very nice peaceful day out. The museum wasn't crazy busy or packed... so we got to take our time going through the museum. All of the pieces were very interesting and I esp. Many fascinating and beautiful things to see in this palace, which was first a Roman gate, then a medieval small fort, then in the 15th century a palace.
