  • On the occasion of the exhibition "all in motion" I and my 13 years we have had the pleasure of visiting the museo Piaggio and Gilera. My son was overjoyed to see the WaSP in many versions, so many uses that have been made and the means used in famous films. Celebratory wasps are the most detail. Also interesting are the three wheelers bee with various outfits. We also admired the other motorbikes by Gilera with means built from 1909 to the present. Historical information and explanations on each half to better complete the exhibition. Ability to secure the fence.

  • Hitherto indissoluble binomial piaggio also tells the story of Pontedera that by now many decades is tied to the history of Pontedera. Convenient parking close by. Interesting Museum tells the story of the Gilera piaggio vespa with many media exposed that featured the development of Pontedera in fear. To visit.

  • Free admission. If you think of a museum by walking shoes, this is not; We are in the presence of a very large exhibition dedicated to the Vespa, with a gallery dedicated to Gilera. In no time it traces a century of history (speaking of the first models Gilera) ranging mostly on special models of Vespa and Apecar, also painted by artists or modified for particular situations. Nostalgia effect assured for those of a certain age and curiosity satisfied for others. Not to be missed.

  • Great little museum. Went there as part of the trip to the Airport and this museum delivered. Had both kids running around happy and me and my wife went around and we're fascinated by the history of Piaggio. The gift shop was also nice. The only downside to the trip was that they couldn't sell the "Barbie on a Piaggio" toy that my daughter saw😁
  • Great place to visit, free entry, no dramas parking, and not hard to find. A must if you love Vespa's.
  • It's a well worth visit if you are a Vespa enthusiast. Even tough some models are lacking, it's fun to see the variety of different scooter models within the Vespa segment. Entrance to the museum is free of charge.
  • Great play area for children to keep themselves busy. Super friendly people, cool Vespa's! They need a tour guide once a day to talk about the vehicles history. We met a racer of the Vespa's.
  • Excellent museum to showcase legendary Vespa
