During a recent trip through Europe with my wife we made a day trip to visit the Enzo Ferrari museum located in Modena and also the Ferrari Museum in Maranello. We had Stayed in Bologna the night before and were heading to Florence that night, so we got up nice and early, dropped our bags off at the luggage storage at the Bologna train station and caught the train to Modena. The train was a very reasonable price of 4 euro and took 30 minutes, when you hop off the train at Modena station you follow the yellow signs painted on the ground with Mr Enzo Ferrari’s signature and after a short walk you end up at the entrance to the Museo Enzo Ferrari .
After walking down the driveway you end up between two buildings, one is a modern yellow and glass building that holds most of the museum and next to it is Enzo Ferrari’s old house/workshop that houses the engine museum. He actually sold this house to buy his first race car back in the day. For 15 euro you get access to both of these museums or for 26 euro you also get a ticket to the Museo Ferrari Maranello. If you want to visit both museums and don’t have your own transport you will also need to pay 12 euro for a return shuttle ticket.
We started off in the engine museum, This contains everything from single cylinder test engines to the V12 from an Enzo as well as a selection of Formula 1 engines spanning their decades in the sport.
