If you care about Ferrari, specifically the early years, this is just a fantastic museum; we loved it. We went to the museum in Maranello in the morning, and to this one in Modena after lunch. I would HIGHLY recommend buying the combined ticket, and doing both museums, if possible. This one really focuses on Enzo himself, but also displays a lot of his earliest cars, which are phenomenally beautiful; it's incredible how far ahead of his time he really was. As you see the evolution of the cars from the 50s to the 70s, it is a fascinating timeline of the company. Admittedly, they never mention how close Ferrari was to bankruptcy year in and year out, I though the focus of this museum was just great (n.b.- the museum in Maranello tends to focus on the newest, most modern Ferraris, as well as the history of the F1 team, whereas this museum focuses on Enzo, and the growth of the company in the early days." I would happily come back again any time.

One final note, you should really do the simulator. Make sure you book your time slot ahead of time, but don't miss it; it is so much fun.

We based ourselves in Parma during this vacation. In one of the days, we visited Modena to visit mainly the Ferrari museum. Modena is just a 30 minutes train ride from Parma. We just walked going there coming from the train station.

Masks is required. At the start of the museum, they showed a beautiful movie of the owner, Enzo and how he built Ferrari to be the brand which is now. Pavarotti I believe was the singer behind the film. Very dramatic and gave me goosebump.

No touching on the car, just look and admire it. Yellow is really the color of Ferrari, not red. I had that feeling because I saw the roof of their museum, the gate and the background color on the sign of the museum was yellow. But because their racing car has red on it, we seem to think Ferrari's color is red.

A very nice museum to pay tribute to the owner, Enzo, who died at 90 years old.

The vast majority of us will never own one of these extraordinary cars. But we can admire their story, their elegance, their legends. A very well crafted museum with an inspiring short film and concise and helpful descriptions in English as well as Italian.

I went to the Enzo Ferrari museum today, I must say that the overall experience is superb for anyone who loves and appreciates cars, art or is a bit of a gear head. Getting to see these classic cars, the short film and the effective videos on engine design really was great.

I bought a ticket for the Modena Enzo Museum and the Maranello Museum, an extra €7. I was told by the helpful reception staff that there was a shuttle from Modena to Maranello, I waited from around 2 hours, from 1:30 untill the shuttle arrived at 3:25.

I was the first to get on, but after everyone filed on I found that the shuttle was one person too
many.

Me too many.

I was told on the bus, usually, you buy tickets on the bus as you get on, but today every seat had been pre booked online. I had just simply been unlucky.

The 3:25 shuttle however was advertised as usual at reception and I was still told to wait.

A taxi there is around €32 rather than €6. Money I don't really have.

Public transport according to maps takes 1h 35 - a 3 hour round trip, time I now didn't have either having waited 2 hours for the Ferrari shuttle.

Upon explaining my problem to reception on my return the very professional staff helped me refund my ticket and overall I can't really complain.

I did however waist around 2 hours waiting for a bus that was already full. In future, when the bus is full, it would be great if that was advertised, or rather not advertised so that people don't waist their time and can plan alternative travel. This was the last day that I had free on my holiday and because of this I now will not get to see the attraction I came so far for.

TL:DR
Got told to wait 2 hours for a bus that would arrive full, to go to a museum that I'd already paid for. The alternative travel was too expensive or too slow. As an international attraction, could you please appropriately advertise your bus availability so that customers can effectively plan their day / alternative route to your museum. Or put on more buses?

I want to finish by saying that all the staff I encountered were extremely professional, helpful and spoke excellent English, helping me with my problem and giving a refund.

I'd love to say I'd come again, but then again I don't really plan on coming all the way to Italy just for a bus that might be full.

We took a 2+ hour train ride to go to Modena to see this museum. There were 8 cars … eight??? There were approximately 30 poorly displayed photos of Enzo Ferrari and about 6 artifacts. (A pair of glasses, 3 letters, and a desk.) After walking through the “house” part of the museum we thought there must be many more cars in the other building. Nope - just a 30 minute wait to see a movie. (Which we didn’t have time to wait.)
We were so confused that we stopped in the gift shop and clarified if we had seen the whole museum.
We basically paid €17 each to use the clean bathroom because we walked away completely at a loss as to how the Ferrari family could allow this disappointment to be associated with the Ferrari brand.

Although they get one star for having a purse hook in the bathroom you should definitely skip this one.

We stopped by to buy something at the gift shop since it was late in the day and we would not have time to enjoy the museum. The staff was incredibly rude and unwelcoming. The woman standing by entrance asked for tickets and when we mentioned that we were just entering the gift shop she said to us people pay money to take pictures and see the cars. We were literally standing by a wide open entrance that was 20 feet wide with a car visible which my 2 year old kid was pointing at so we took a picture of her. Not even the car but she was annoyed. We then proceeded to the gift shop where my husband purchased a shirt tor 55 Euros. While he paid my toddler was touching a toy car on the floor designed for toddlers. Again the staff was rude and nasty for no reason. Saying she could not touch a toy car that they had placed on the floor within children’s reach. We were there for a total of 15 minutes and could not leave any sooner. A few people leaving mentioned how small and expensive the museum was. Not worth the entrance price. I am glad we did not have time and did not buy tickets. Stay away! Awful people working here.

If you are not a real Ferrari fan, you are likely be dissapointed. You will only learn some basic information about Enzo's life and will see a random selection of Ferraris in a random order. You will not hear strong stories about the great man neither details about cars exhibited, technologies and achievements of the undoubtedly powerfull brand. The exhibitition is very static and the new building looks fresh from the outside but adds little to overall experience inside. For me: lost opportunity to promote the brand and attract new Ferrari fans. Price to value ratio is a dissaster esp. compared to Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile Torino where you see can many more cars throughout history (even more Ferraris I recall), learn tons more information, for a lower price.

We drove 160 km to visit this museum as a final part of our two week stay in Italy. A much-anticipated visit was ruined by an obnoxious security guard who three of four times approached my young children and addressed them for no reason. He then told them to get off the grass. What was supposed to be an amazing life dream visit was ruined by the guy with a small man complex.

We really enjoyed this museum and seeing where Enzo Ferrari came from. Get the combo ticket with this location and the car museum in Maranello. It's a good value. This museum is more about the art of the cars and less about the racing, though there are some race cars here. However, if you are looking for the racing cars, you will find more at the Maranello museum. But there's plenty of time for both. Note that there is a good cafe at this location.

A modern building filled with beautiful Ferraris, so even non petrol heads can enjoy it. They really looked like works of art, also interesting to see how the firm has managed to survive in this highly competitive.
Maybe more videos would be interesting.
