“Watch the movie about the Enzo Ferrari.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

The museum is very beautiful, amazing architecture. Very minimalist. It has a small restaurant. But lack Ferraris. Ok, go to Maranello to see the Ferraris.
But Enzo Ferrari deserved this memory architecture, as well as the architect who has died.

“Aerodynamics are for men who can't build engins.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Enzo Ferrari said that btw. This exhibit just opened March 10, 2012. I visited on the 15th (out of luck). Very easy to find. It's the large modern looking building that is Modena/Ferrari-Yellow. A little pricy but worth it. They offer electronic guides to you free of charge, you have to leave your passport as a deposit. The guides work with a gps type system and when you go to a new area of the museum it follows you giving you information about what you are looking at. The entire museum includes the gallery and also the home of Enzo. In the home is a more historical view of the legend of Enzo Ferrari. Very informative. Any person who loves cars would love this. You can take pictures inside the gallery, not in the home. There is a cafe inside also if you need a break.

“Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari: Museum built around the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

I was very impressed by this new museum that opened in March 2012. When you arrive in Modena by train from Bologna, just past the Maserati production facility, on the left-hand side just before the train pulls into the station you see the Exhibition Space of this new museum, a vast yellow roof with air vents, constructed around a tiny two-storey brick building that was Ferrari’s birthplace. Turn left as you come out of the station, and the museum is a short five-minute walk away, following the yellow signs. There is really no need to take a taxi as it is less than 1 km from the station. Inside the Exhibition Space there is a collection of 20 priceless Maseratis, Alfa Romeos and Ferraris, mainly from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, each of them beautifully restored and displayed in this vast ethereal space, a reminder of the fact that in the early part of his career Enzo Ferrari was a racing driver for Alfa Romeo, and only started producing his own vehicles at the end of the 1940s. In a side room there is a video of Piero Ferrari reminiscing about his father Enzo Ferrari (who ran the company until he died in 1988) and the early days of the company. Inside the brick building alongside the main Exhibition Space, you might expect some kind of reconstruction of a late nineteenth-century family home, but in fact it mainly consists of multimedia exhibits that in my view are no competition for the beautiful beasts housed next door. The admission fee is 13 euros, or 22 euros if you combine your trip to this museum in Modena with a trip to the Galleria Ferrari at Maranello (10 miles away, no need to book in advance). The easiest way to get to Maranello is to buy two bus tickets at the ticket stand just outside the train station in Modena, then take bus no 1 or 2 to the main bus terminal in Modena (autostazione / stazione delle corriere) and then bus no 800 to Maranello, that takes about 40 minutes. When the bus gets close to Maranello, you get to an overpass, and over to your right you get a glimpse of the Fiorano test track, after which you come to the bus stop for the Galleria Ferrari. After your visit to the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari and the Galleria Ferrari, you could stay overnight in a hotel in Modena (one minute from the bus terminal you have the four-star Central Park and the three-star Estense that have both been recently refurbished) and the next day from the bus terminal you could take the bus that goes to San Giovanni in Persiceto (and Cento) and this will take you to the village of Sant’Agata Bolognese (18 km from Modena), where you can see the Lamborghini Museum (13 euros) or if you book ahead both the Lamborghini museum and production facility (40 euros) but you need to book ahead for the production facility. You could then return to your hotel in Modena and take the train to Bologna to visit the Ducati factory (10 euros), but you need to book in advance (see link below). If you plan your trip in advance then you can see the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari, the Galleria Ferrari, the Lamborghini Museum and production facility, and perhaps also the Ducati production facility. Finally, if you book well in advance, you might also be able to see the fine collection of Maseratis at the Umberto Panini Historic Car Collection at Cittanova, but this is a private collection that is open only on request, so you would need to make a request well in advance. Of this list of five attractions, the first three are really the most important in my view, and I have been to them all, except the Panini Collection.
Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari (near Modena railway station)
Ferrari Museum (Museo Ferrari / Galleria Ferrari) (Maranello, near Modena)
Lamborghini Museum (Sant’Agata Bolognese)
Ducati Factory and Museum (Borgo Panigale, Bologna):
Umberto Panini Historic Car Collection (Cittanova, near Modena)
