The phase transition and thermodynamic geometry of a 4-dimensional AdS topological charged black hole in de Rham, Gabadadze and Tolley (dRGT) massive gravity have been studied. After introducing a normalized thermodynamic scalar curvature, it is speculated that its value is related to the interaction between the underlying black hole molecules if the black hole molecules exist. We show that there does exist a crucial parameter given in terms of the topology, charge, and massive parameters of the black hole, which characterizes the thermodynamic properties of the black hole. It is found that when the parameter is positive, the singlet large black hole phase does not exist for sufficient low temperature and there is a weak repulsive interaction dominating for the small black hole which is similar to the Reissner–Nordström AdS black hole; when the parameter is negative, an additional phase region describing large black holes also implies a dominant repulsive interaction. These constitute the distinguishable features of dRGT massive topological black hole from those of the Reissner–Nordström AdS black hole as well as the Van der Waals fluid system.
