This is a great museum which shows off Alfa’s heritage in a light and airy environment. There are cars from the very start of the company’s existence in the early years of the 20th century until the early years of the next century. Visitors can walk around the exhibits and view them from all angles. Prototypes and concept cars are also on display. The highlight of the museum are the racing cars from Alfa’s glory years. These are a must see for any Alfisti, and the manner in which they are presented is very imaginative. There is also an 4D interactive cinema display, which is a lot of fun. At the end of the tour, there is a cafe and restaurant which provides high quality food. This museum is a little difficult to access via public transport, but it is an essential destination for and Alfisti or petrolhead.

Great news for all Alfa Romeo enthusiasts, the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo has reopened!

I was fortunate to be one of 360 automotive journalists fortunate enough to be invited to the museum on 24 June for the reveal of the 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan. While my colleagues were eating and getting drunk upstairs, I used the opportunity to photograph the entire collection without many distractions and people in my photographs.

Here's a link to my images.

The new layout of the museum is spectacular, with about 80 cars, just the right amount. While a few significant Alfa Romeos are not on display, this is not surprising given that so many were one-offs or were built in very small quantities.

The museum has a very comprehensive website for those of you who will not have a chance to visit.

Ferrari certianly gets most of the attention when you think about visiting an automobile museum in Italy but the 'other red car' is well worth a visit. In fact, the Alfa Romeo museum is much more interesting and interactive than the Ferrari museum.

This is one of the best car museums that I have ever visited and I've been to many. It's a virtual palace for cars, it's quite easy to get to if you have a car and it seems that there are organised guided tours to the museum, otherwise you'll probably need a car, there is plenty of free car parking and there's a showroom if your'e tempted to buy a car
There is a great display of Alfa's through the ages, from the first car from 1910 up to the latest.
there is a great time line on the famous racing drivers and races won, apart form the cars there are a number of engines including aero engines.
There's a number of creative designs that display didn’t make it to production and details of the most famous car design and coachbuilders who succumbed to the industrialisation and mass production of the 80 and 90's.

There is the 4d movie cinema which is great fun although I think it would have been better with actual footage rather than CGI.
Don’t rush take your time and read everything it was truly a great experience and try to find time to visit the lovely cafe/restaurant, entrance price 10 euros for those of a certain age! and there is a shop for books, merchandise etc.

Arese lies at the outskirts of Milano and reaching the museum on public transport is a bit of an effort as you got to get by underground to Rho-Fiera and then on the 561 bus. But the effort is most definitely worthwhile! A wonderful collection of all Alfa Romeo's cars produced over its life. Of particular interest is the pre World War II part where you can see the outstanding models of the 30ies which are amazing. The collection is very large and, if you like cars, it will take the best part of two hours. The setting is very well designed and walking through it is a pleasure and you can clearly see that this is part of Fiat Crysler Automobile strategy to revamp the Alfa Romeo brand which this year has come back on F1 sponsoring the Sauber-Ferrari team. I would advise to check the opening times before going there as these are not obvious. Also in planning it consider that there is a cafeteria with decent fare so that you are not caught starving.

The cars themselves are exactly what you would expect in an Alfa museum, really well presented, with plenty of technical explanation. They aren't too crowded in, so you can take plenty of photos. It isn't just the sports models on display, but the family range of cars as well, which means plenty of opportunity for reminiscing if there is an Italian in your group.

The restaurant is good, although no prices were on display anywhere so it's a case of ordering and hoping it's not too expensive (which it wasn't, but it would be nice to know prices before you order - I was half convinced that lunch must have been included, there was such a lack of prices or menus on display)

The real drawback is that there is no public transport within 45 minutes walk and no shuttle service, so a taxi from the nearest station cost 20€. This is a great museum as long as you own a car, but if you are trying to get there on foot, forget it.

Large, modern and complete museum. The Alfa Romeo collection is beautiful. We visited the museum at the end of the day and were almost the only visitors so we had a few escorts through the whole museum. This was annoying! Although we still had time we feld as we couldn't leave to early so they could go home and we had eyes on us all the time. They did their job but it was a bit to much.
The toycar collection wall is impressive but the glass needs a good shine up or new glass.
The shop has things for every budget.
So we rated the museum as very good, not as excellent because of the 'experience'.

In the middle of an industrial estate this is not easy to get to but once you are there it is an absolute car buffs dream. Alfa Romeo's from the early 1900's to the present day including F1, F3, Rally cars,Touring cars and road cars. You can even buy a car there.
The restaurant is also very good where you can eat pasta and salads along with the staff.
Well worth a visit for 12 Euros or 10 for pensioners.

I trekked out to the Alfa Museum with my Alfa tragic partner. He was in raptures, naturally, but even to a mild Alfa lover like myself, this museum, with its lively depiction of the history of the iconic brand, was a treat. The historic models on display gave a colourful and photogenic impression of the history of Alfa Romeo. What beautiful cars they are. I especially loved the video clippings of famous racing victories, and of Alfa Romeos in famous films. The red Spider in The Graduate, it has to be said, is drool-worthy. There were many models on display, and the information accompanying them was just enough to satisfy your curiosity without overburdening you with information. At the end of it all came the coffee shop - the coolest coffee shop in Italy. With options for all dietary requirements. A great morning out, strongly recommended. Go see for yourself.
