The Ferrari Museum at Maranello, Italy

The Ferrari Museum is a wonder to see and a must-do experience when in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The museum is a Ferrari lover’s dream. All of the cars on display allow for a close look. Walk right up to them and admire their beauty!

The Ferrari Museum!

As you walk through the museum, you’ll see red cars everywhere. Enzo Ferrari claimed that a child will always choose red when drawing a car. He’s probably right!

Beautiful cars in red!

So many cars in this large museum. Every so often, you find a car that isn’t red.

Another model Ferrari. Can’t keep track of them all!

Ferrari developed V-12 engines and had strong feelings about them.

Information on the V-12 engine.

Many years ago, cars were modeled out of wood, or in many cases, clay. The design allowed Ferrari to see what the car would look like and to have a working model for their production staff. It’s fascinating to think that the designers had to cut out wood and assemble models for their proof of concept cars. This has to be a lost art today.

A show-stopping car in gloss black that had everyone drooling over it. It was difficult to get a photo of it since so many people were attracted to its good looks.

A mean Ferrari for sure. Everyone stopped to stare at this car.

Space for all the trophies is set up inside the museum. It’s a bit overwhelming to see how many races must have been won to amass such a huge collection.

And more red racing cars. I never got tired of seeing them. Ferrari is just an iconic brand and is well represented here.

Red racing cars. I can never get enough of them!

Right next door is a restaurant and Ferrari test-drive rental place. There are many Ferrari rental businesses in Maranello. For the right price, you can take a spin in a Ferrari!
