Lo consiglio a tutti.We visited the Museum with real astonishment, is really well done, the trophy room with fireballs Ferrari fan lined up is wonderful. I recommend it to everyone.show original
For some it may feel like its kitsch, but the exhibits are fabulous and well laid out. The whole visit takes less than two hours and there is a remarkable display of rare cars and depictions of Ferrari's history. The location of the museum in the middle of the manufacturing complex adds to the ambience. Its an extra fee, but the simulator is a blast, and a great experience for kids.
I am coming at this from the point of view of a casual car fan that he also visited the Henry Ford museum(s) in Detroit and as well as the Poseche and Mercedes-Benz museums in Stuttgart Germany. I would compare this most to the Porsche museum. It is mostly about the racing heritage of Ferrari and provides little to no information or exhibited related to the actually history of the company or the engineering of the vehicles. There is a lot of assumed knowledge making it daunting for a very casual fan. If you just want to see some expensive or famous cars, maybe take your picture next to one then this will be fine. If you want to go looking to learn something new, you might be disappointed.
The Ferrari museum is a nice to look at museum. You can see nice cars – not so much further information and it could be more interactive. But the cars are nice to look at – so if you drive by or a big Ferrari fan then worth to visit. If you are more interested in cars and mobility in general and want to have more background infos better visit the Autostadt.
Don't waste your time. All they want to do is try and sell you stuff. You can't see production, any of it. They want 100€ for a 15 min test drive. 25€ for 7 min in a simulator. You can see about a dozen of their past race cars. I was totally disappointed. What a waste of time. I can't stress this enough, it sucked. If you're really interested in a Ferrari, go to a dealership, you can probably take one for a test drive. At minimum, at least you'll get to sit in one. At the museum, you can't even do that. They have an ongoing video playing in a theater there, it only plays music, there's no narration. It's just constant visual chest thumping about how great they are. It's a long drive in the middle of nowhere. Waste of 1/2 a day.
A must see museum for Formula 1 fans. More so if you are a Ferrari fan. Great layout of drivers, cars, stories behind each of them. There is a paid guided tour that goes into a great level of detail on each car displayed - only for the super fans. Be careful of the salesmen who approach you as you are getting in and out of the museum - they would ask you if you wan to drive a Ferrari but they have nothing to do with the museum. They rent cars and let you drive it. I recommend reaching out to the museum Enzo at Modena through their email to book a drive on the track. There is ample parking, the blue lots are paid, the white ones are free for an hour. You will see them in the parking lot opposite the museum.
