Galleria Ferrari is the official museum dedicated to the famed Italian marque, located in Ferrari’s home town of Maranello, Italy, seconds from the factory.
The exhibits are mostly a combination of Ferrari road and competition cars, with many of more iconic cars from throughout its history present. During our tour, vehicles on exhibition included a 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B, 1954 Ferrari 375 Plus, 1959 Ferrari 400 Superamerica, 1971 Ferrari 512 M, plus the latest Ferrari offerings.
As expected, the tour places a strong emphasis on the Formula 1 success, complete with an abundance of championship-winning cars, on top of trophies, photographs and an interesting recreation of a Ferrari Grand Prix garage.
While cars are the centerpiece as they should be, part of the museum is devoted to Enzo Ferrari and the legend he produced, including pictures and memorabilia of Enzo’s office in via Trento Trieste – Modena. Additionally, there is a new Cavallino Cafeteria for food and refreshments, plus two F1 simulators and of course a shop to purchase the latest Ferrari gear.
