The museum charts the progress of Turin's motor industry, these days dominated by Fiat, but once home to many fledgling manufacturers whose names are almost lost to the mists of time.
With some real beauties in the collection, the museum is a real treat for anyone with the slightest interest in cars. One of the first displays includes the first Fiat 500 as well as many other examples from the days when cars had real character and charm.
The last section of the museum is a must for Formula 1 enthusiasts, with a display of racing cars dating from the 1950s.
But some of the best cars on display must be the long narrow Lancia Lambda on the first floor, the Itala 35/45 HP that won the Peking to Paris race in 1907 and the Autobianchi Bianchina 500 that looks almost exactly like Snoopy's car.
Although a bit far out from the city centre there is a bus stop fairly close by, or you can take a taxi from Piazza Vittorio Veneto for around €8.
Entrance to the museum is 6 euros.
