About
The Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum narrates the life of Ferruccio through his mechanical creations and a vast archive of family’s photos. This place, conceived and founded by the entrepreneur Tonino Lamborghini to celebrate his father, was inaugurated in 2014. Inside 9,000 sqm. the Museum holds all the industrial productions of the Doctor of Engineering (Hon. Causa) Lamborghini, from the first Carioca tractor which started his company in 1947, to the most important tractors of the ‘50s,’60s and ‘70s. An emotional journey will let you admire Ferruccio’s personal cars collection, like the fabulous Miura SV, and many other famous cars, like the Fiat Barchetta Sport, modified to participate in the 1948 Mille Miglia competition, the futuristic Countach, Jarama models, Urracos and the Espada with seagull wing doors that inspired the car of the Back to the Future movie. The Museum will also offer you a glimpse of two special stories: the helicopter prototype and the 11-times world champion Fast 45 Diablo Class 1 offshore boat, 13.5 meters long with Lamborghini engines. The reconstruction of Ferruccio’s first office at Lamborghini Tractors company with his personal effects, official documents and photos of the period will help you discovering not only his life, but also the story of his family and of the people who worked for his companies during the Italian economic boom in the late ’50s-‘60s.

Myself and my son (19), visited several of the auto museums in one day, including the official MUDETEC Lamborghini museum which we found sanitized and light on content. We finished the day here and we were glad we did, the museum is quirky, eclectic and packed with all kinds of fascinating stuff including many of Ferruccio's own cars, test mules, and other things he designed like the racing boat and a helicopter. There's even a Lamborghini popemobile. Well worth the trip.

When we were planning our Spring Break trip to Italy, I noticed that Lamborghini, Ferrari and Pagani are all close to Bologna -- which is an easy day trip from Florence. The new high-speed Trenitalia line will get you there in just 35 minutes for ~30 euros in Premium class. So my wife agreed to a "Guys Day" in the land of supercars.

First, there are two Lamborghini museums: the factory museum, and the Lamborghini family museum. The factory was closed for Easter week, but the Lamborghini family museum wasn't open yet -- they moved to a new building and the grand opening was scheduled two weeks later. Fortunately our guide, Francesco Bini at Motorstars.org, knew who to call.

We arrived and were greeted by Fabio Lamborghini, the nephew of Ferruccio -- the famous founder. He gave us a personal tour, full of stories about the tractors that gave Ferruccio his start, his first race car, the famous Countach, the helicopter (yes, a Lamborghini helicopter!) and the record setting boat with monster 12 cylinder engines. It became clear that Ferruccio was the Steve Jobs of 'mobile' technology at the time, a real genius with anything that contained an engine. (Some photos are attached.)

I am sure the Lamborghini factory museum is great, but the family collection provides insight into the history behind the now-famous supercars. I came away with much more appreciation and respect for Ferruccio's vision and accomplishments. Fabio's kind offer to give us a personal tour before the new museum opened was also memorable.

This is a definite must-see if you visit the Florence / Bologna area. I strongly recommend the expert guide who introduced us to Fabio -- and took us through Museo Ferrari, the Pagani assembly line and a few laps behind the wheel of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia at Autodromo di Modena race track: Francesco Bini at Motorstars.org. Francesco worked at Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani, and seems to know everyone in the industry, every car, every engine and part. We saw things we would not have otherwise, and Francesco's knowledge was very helpful. I found him on TripAdvisor, and now we know why he has very high ratings!

A note on the trains from Florence to Bologna: This was the first time for us, and we had no problems. Buy your tickets ahead of time online from Trenitalia; they can sell out, even in Premium and Business class. The new high-speed line gets you there in just 35 minutes, which makes a day trip easy. We left at 7:30 and returned at 6. Fares are low, and the new trains are better than the Accela in the US. Francesco picked us up at the Bologna Centrale station and provided the transport to Ferrari, Lamborghini etc.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

We found out about this museum on a car forum where numerous people were raving about their visit. The museum does not have opening hours. You have to call or email the owner/director who will open it for you and give you a tour ! (fabio.lamborghini@libero.it).
The museum is quite out of the way, so take a map, but it's well worth the visit. It's housed in a lovely building, which is crammed from floor to ceiling with all sorts of Lamborghini's, from the early tractors, to all the classic cars, many prototypes and even a helicopter!
However what made the tour was Fabio himself ! Nephew of Ferruccio Lamborghini, he was a lovely man, impeccably dressed and told some great stories. He takes you round each item and tells you about the history and why it is important, it was fascinating.
If you are in the area and like cars, then you have to visit, it's €15 well spent and you get to see some beautiful cars !

Personal and friendly tour of the family museum - got an inept history tour - loved it worth a trip from Milan over the day - be sure to book your visit - limited tours only on request - one of my favorite car museums (have been to BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari and other Lamborghini).

Well.............. What can I say?

Fabio Lamborghini gave us a personal tour of Ferruccio Lamborghini's personal Museum. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had in Italy (a country we love so much and have had many beautiful times).

Fabio took his time to explain Lamborghinis proud history, it was genuinely heart warming to hear of such ingenious and passion to be the best. We will never forget this brilliant opportunity.

I believe the factory in Dosso will know be closed for good(September 2013) but don't worry everything is moved to a larger museum closer to Bologna (which will be much easier to get to).

Take some extra cash to buy some merchandise. We bought signed memorabilia and some Lamborghini wine, Fantastico.

We will be back many times.

Thank You Fabio

The new museum building has allowed them to de clutter and organise the collection. It is much more professional now but consequently has lost some of the character.

A highlight was seeing the original Ferrari 250, that Ferruccio hated, with it's drive train removed. And next to it the first Lamborghini car, the 350GT, that he developed as an alternative (see photos).

Thank you Lee M for your visit! We loved the previous museum very much too, but it was too far from Bologna (and so from airport and train station) and too small for the current collection. Hope to see you next time again!

A good friend of mine is a close friend of Fabio Lamborghini. He invited us to Bologna and we were provided a private pre-opening tour of the museum. Thank you Fabio for being such a generous person by allowing members of the public come and view the private collection of Lamborghini. Your enthusiasm and dedication to preserving your uncle's famous history of engineering has left a long lasting mark on us.

If you ever get the opportunity or pleasure to visit this wonderful little museum, then I encourage you to do so, you will not be disappointed...

Both the Lamborghini factory, under Audi's control, and the Lamborghini family offer museums dedicated to the mechanical genius that was Ferruccio Lamborghini. The factory tour is well done and typical of any corporate enterprise. The accompanying (extra cost) factory tour showcases the end-point assembly of the two current models, the V10 Huracan and the V12 Aventador. The elements are all there but the missing passion for these extraordinary machines can only be found with Fabio Lamborghini at his family museum down the road 20 minutes. Here, the intensity, pride and fortitude of founder Ferrucio is transferred to you by his nephew Fabio. With gracious aplomb and easy demeanor, Fabio walks you through Ferruccio's life one vehicle at a time. He knows all the details but speaks to the level of his audience, never condensing or going into tech-speak. If you can, go to lunch with him and experience his hospitality in a food-centric setting. It will be your best day in Italy by far.

This is the family museum - kind of a tribute to the father of Lamborghini.

In the museum you will find multiple cars owned by the family, also tractors and other machinery made by Lamborghini. It is a good sized museum with many exhibits. I loved the small car made by the father for his young son and the concept car. My 11 year old Lamborghini fan son loved it all and was fascinated by the range of exhibits.

The lady in reception welcomed us and told us a bit about the museum. I felt more like a guest than a customer.

The gift shop was opened at our request and had the most reasonably priced items of all the super car places we visited (4 in total).

I found this place on Trip Advisor when trying to decide which museums to visit. I would thoroughly recommend a trip to this one to anyone with an interest in vehicles.

Just for information there is ample free parking in front of the museum.

We visited the Lamborghini Museum in Modena and the Ferarri Museum in Modena and Maranelo, and the best museum we could visit is the "Museum Ferrucio Lamborghoni" in Bologna, a very nice collection of cars, not just Lamborghini but others.
