    A highlight for Maserati, history and Panini fans!
    This is the place you must see if you like cars, history and Maserati. This very unique private museum is owned and run by one of Paninis sons. He was present at the time we visited. This collection of old and newer cars is amazing! The building inside is very historic too and gives you the feeling of being part of the good old times. We learned a lot and spent quite some time there. The collection not only consists of cars but also motorcycles, farmer trucks (outside), pictures and prices Panini won during his career. Modena isn't very special to go see but this lovely unique museum definately is! Entry free of charge but donations are welcome.

    And It's Free!
    We found this on TA and it looked intriquing. Amazing is more like it. Fabulous Collection of historic cars. And it's free!! Don't miss the Lamborghini Tractor! Located on an Organic Farm that produces Pameggiano cheese. Definately off the beaten path, we had a car so it was easy.

    Музей для фанатов итальянских автомобилей
    Помимо коллекции винтажных Maserati в музее собрано невероятное количество всех видов средств передвижения на колесах (мотоциклов, велосипедов и даже тракторов) с начала 20 века по наши дни. Рассматривать детали можно часами. Сыновья были в восторге!

So we kind of stumbled upon this museum after reading an obscure review in the Wall Street Journal (I think). After visiting the Enzo Museum in Modena we had some extra time, so we took a taxi out to this museum (it is also known as L' Hombre). The collection of Maseratis is astounding. My boyfriend prides himself on knowing just about every car, and he saw a couple of Maseratis there he wasn't familiar with. They also have two prototypes there. While we were there a car transport truck dropped off three race cars...one with Sterling Moss' signature on it! Another car was a really unique Marcos (okay, so is there a Marcos that isn't unique, haha?). If you are into cars and think you've seen it all, you really need to visit this museum. Word of warning, there isn't anyone working at the museum, and the woman in the store there didn't speak English, although we were able to get her to understand that we needed help getting a taxi to get us back to downtown Modena. Be prepared for Italian only.

This collection was saved from being split up at auction a few years ago and now owned by the Panini family. It include Nuvolari's car and a few more modern race cars. It was the weekend of the Monaco historic race so some may have been there. Check opening times before going and location as it is not signposted.

Fabulous collection of Maseratis in existence, just 20mins from Modena center

Primarily Maseratis, from pre-war to today and in immaculate condition.

Stunning collection of assorted motor bikes from every make are on display. There is also a collection of tractors to see.

Its absolutely free to enter, however please book online for admission and time slot

This museum has a fine collection of Maserati cars (including some protypes and one-off's), as well as some other cars, motorcycles and old tractors.
It is located on a farm outside Modena (Azienda Agricola Hombre), where you also can buy the Parmiggiano Reggiano.
You have to book through an agenzia, which includes a guided tour.
They charge for 1 hour visit including a visit of the museum and the cheese production, but for real car enthusiasts 1 hour can be too short.
For real car enthusiasts, the knowledge of the guide on the Maserati history and cars, as well on the other vehicles than the Maserati cars in the museum is very limited.
The information given by the guide can be easy summarized by an information panel at the car.

This is a nice collection of Maseratis in mint condition. You need to take cab since it is outside of town about 20 minutes. I happen to meet the owner of collection and he was very friendly and helpful. A true car enthusiast! Give yourself 2 hours for travel and seeing museum which will take less than hour to see.

We stopped by on our way out of Modena because we have a child that loves both cheese and fast cars, so it seemed like a win-win!

We got a great tour from the lovely Martina. She showed us the farm, the cows, where the cheese was made and explained the entire process. Afterwards, she left us at the motor museum so we could have some time to see all of the amazing, classic cars.

The cars were phenomenal and it was not a crowded tourist spot, which is what we appreciated the most. We got to see the farm, learn about the cheese and have fun looking at the cars, all while feeling like we had the whole place to ourselves! You can see classic tractors (including some Lamborghinis), cars and even bicycles at the Motor Museum.

Martina was a huge part of what made the visit so special for us, so thank you to her for the wonderful service!

It's worth a lot more than visiting Maserati or Ferrari museums, and for free! You can see tractors, racing cars, classic maserati's, and many motorbikes (including Ducati).
The country state is well taken care of, and the museum shares space with a region's products shop, a cow stockbreeding, a bar and fields.

Beautiful farm producing delicious Parmesan reggiano cheese, the ageing room is a must to see. This farm also boasts an amazing collection of Maserati cars that were saved by family Panini from being split up. There is also a little store to buy cheese, please do Check opening times! When we were done looking at the cars the cheese shop was closed already.

Just 20 minutes drive from the city centre in the grounds of a small organic Parmesan producer is this great collection of Maseratis and other classic cars and bikes. Am I the only one who assumed it was a museum dedicated to bread rolls? Turns out Panini is the family name! It's well worth touring the dairy while you're here too - especially the delicious smelling ageing room.
