Located in the heart of Turin, Palazzo Madama is one of Piedmont’s greatest landmarks and embodies the history of the city and the identity of its citizens. A cultural and social space, where art has not only the value of beauty and where the Museum acts as a guardian of time,Palazzo Madama becomes a tool of wellbeing, community, and exchange.

The magnificent Medieval Botanical Garden, a green space in the heart of Turin, offers first-hand contact with an exemplary environment to learn more about the unbreakable bonds between nature and culture. During the year, our Education Department offers many activities specifically designed for all ages and segments of society: schools, adults, families, teachers, individuals with disabilities.

Young people

During the summer and at other times of the year when school is not in session, Palazzo Madama offers at its summer camps creative workshops and guided tours, which offer participants direct contact with our heritage of beauty and art.



Conferences, art history classes, and workshops designed for adults are held by our in-house staff or visiting professors thanks to an important network of contacts and collaborations on research projects with museums and universities in Italy and abroad.
