Panoramic view of the alpine region
The Alpine Lookout and the Rooftop Terrace offer a unique location, with a breath-taking view of the city skyline and the 400 km alpine region, that is unlike any other in the world,
Their location permits a unique view of an extraordinary panorama in which city, hills and mountains co-exist.
The telescope installed at the Monte dei Cappuccini in 1874, exhibited on the ground floor of the permanent collection, has been replaced by the modern panoramic binoculars of the Alpine Lookout next to the Terrace, which was completed on the Museum rooftop in 2005.
An instrument that permits visually exploring the urban and surrounding mountain environment.
Located just a few metres from the Santa Maria al Monte Church, the Terrace is an experience from morning to sunset, a place where you can view the evocative Luci d’Artista art installation “Small Blue Spirits” (1999) by Rebecca Horn, from an unusual and up-close perspective.
This space, which is at the end of the museum itinerary, becomes a theatre for performances, live shows and art installations during events and temporary exhibits that are in synch with the Museum’s identity and cultural programming.
Today, as in the past, the Lookout and Rooftop Terrace are exclusive observation points that unite Turin and the Alps. An alluring and sublimely romantic spot that is accessible with a special €3 ticket.
