  • Just a selection of cars, so can be exciting to the real fans of Ferrari. There is also a F1 simulator suitable from 150 cm tall, so my son was frustrated he couldn’t try it. Next time we will to to.....  more »
  • It was a smart museum but some nice touches but lacking depth to get 5*, luckily it was only 30 minutes from bologna as had we travelled further we wouldn't have been pleased. Even reading every sign....  more »
  • For Ferrari fans this is obviously a must. The milestones of Enzo Ferrari’s history, coupled with F1 simulators and the obvious merchandising store, Ferrari fans have it all. Buy the combo ticket...  more »

  • Place is at a 2 minute walking distance from the iconic Enzo Ferrari museum. If you've got some spare buck to spend make sure you visit this place. The staff is helpful in making you a choice for the ride and the prices seem reasonable. Great if you have a international working license. The photographer is also good at what he does. Personally, got a ride on Ferrari California T and the experience was great.
  • Really cool cars. Wish I could have driven one of them. Jaw dropping stuff altogether. A must see if you're around this part of Italy. Did it as part of a tour from Bologna which is well worth it.
  • My main question: How can you have an Enzo Ferrari museum with no Ferrari Enzo?! There were some cool historical models on display, but the information film had hardly any information on the life of Enzo (though from what I gather he tried to keep out of the public eye). The entry fee is quite expensive for what you get. As another reviewer said - your local Ferrari dealer will have similar cars. The Monza SP was extremely cool, as was the adjacent shop (included in the entry ticket) showcasing many Ferrari engines.
  • Absolutely loved this place!! Amazing to see all the different cars and listen to the history of Farrari. Truly a must stop if you are in the area and like awesome sports cars. The environment and presentation of the museum was top class. Would love to go back later in life.
  • This has both the futuristic gallery of historic Ferrari automobiles placed in chronological order and the recreated original Ferrari shop. I really liked the recreation of the original Ferrari shop building adjacent to the gallery. I wish though that there could have been more historical artifacts like design tools and instruments. ...that would have been fascinating
