Museo Enzo Ferrari, Modena, Italy
Visited in 2012
The Museo Enzo Ferrari in Modena opened to the public on March 10, 2012. The museum was built on the site of the old house where Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898 which still has the original dwelling part intact as well as the mechanical workshop (where his father Alfredo worked), opposite which there is a new (in 2012) futuristic looking gallery: shaped like a car bonnet in yellow, the colour of the town of Modena, the colour chosen by Enzo Ferrari as the background for the Prancing Horse, the Ferrari logo. The museum is currently managed by Ferrari spa.
The exhibits are not static – every six months or so there is a different theme – check the website before you visit. The photos shown here are of the cars on display in July 2012. As you can see, not all cars are Ferraris!
