The Ferrari Museum in Maranello was established in February 1990 and is currently located about 300 meters from the Prancing Horse factory. This amazing Museum doesn’t collect only the most famous Ferrari cars, but it also exhibits prizes, photographs and other historical objects related to the history of the great Italian car brand.

Like its brother, the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, the Maranello Museum also consists of a permanent section and a part dedicated to temporary exhibitions.

The permanent section is the real temple of cars enthusiasts, here it is reconstructed the first office of Enzo Ferrari in Modena – the place where, in 1929, the myth of the Prancing Horse began – together with the models, the projects and the test studies on the first cars created from the Ferrari’s brand.
The Maranello Museum also hosts the impressive hall of victories, which celebrates the victories of Scuderia Ferrari through an overview of the World Championship F1 cars from 1999 to 2008; the hall collects more than 110 trophies and the original helmets of the 9 World Champions Pilots in the Ferrari history. For F1 enthusiasts, we suggest not miss the chance to listen to the sound of a Formula 1 engines, from the 90s models to the latest.

The Museum gives visitors also the opportunity to admire about 40 models chosen in rotation between all the cars of Ferrari history and which constitute the temporary part of the Museum. An opportunity to admire legendary cars based on specific themes and recurrences of the Cavallino brand, but also the best way to renew and present visitors unique models in the world.


Among the many activities that can be done at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello we suggest to try the two semi-professional driving simulators available to all those who want to experience the thrill of driving a Ferrari Formula 1 car on some of the World’s most famous circuits such as Monza, Barcelona, Silverstone, Imola, Nürbürgring, Zandvoort, SPA Francorchamps and Mugello.
The car lets the occupant feel the track surface, responds very realistically if it hits the rubbing strip, for instance, and, most importantly of all, is extraordinarily sensitive to both throttle and brake, delivering all the thrill of the speed only a car this sophisticated can deliver.

The Ferrari Museum in Maranello also offers visitors exclusive shuttle bus tours to the Fiorano track and along the Viale Enzo Ferrari boulevard in the factory complex.
A museum guide will also discuss the various characteristics of the Ferrari track where the Prancing Horse has carried out all its competition and road car tests since 1972. Likewise the Ferrari Campus, the heart of the complex where all the Prancing Horse cars are built. The buildings and facilities designed by world-leading architects of the likes of Renzo Piano, Massimiliano Fuksas, Jean Nouvelle, Marco Visconti and Luigi Sturchio are also fascinating. Equally interesting is the historic part of the factory which has been meticulously preserved, not least the factory entrance which dates back to 1947.
