The history of the Museum
The Ferrari Museum was officially opened on Enzo Ferrari’s birthday February 18th, in 1990, a year and a half after the founder had passed away, but has been welcoming enthusiasts from all over the world to Maranello to celebrate the Prancing Horse legend since the end of the 1980s. The Galleria Ferrari became the company’s official museum in 1995 and since 2011 has been known simply as the Ferrari Museum. Around 240,000 visitors a year pass through its doors and view its superb collections.
The Museum is divided into themed areas designed to fulfil the expectations of enthusiasts of all kinds, from motor racing fans to expert historic car enthusiasts and even those who admire the Prancing Horse as an icon of Italian design, exclusivity and technology.
The Museum exhibition area is spread over 5 main halls (the Competition Hall, Cittadella Ferrari and Formula Uomo, the Victories Hall, the Grand Tourer Hall and the Temporary Exhibitions Hall) and also includes more than 500 square metres of other areas offering different services such as the Ferrari Store, the café, driving simulators and the photo point.
Visitors are greeted by single-seaters, sports cars and sports prototypes and relive the great competitions of the past. This hall also houses Enzo Ferrari’s original office and a statue of the founder, the Scuderia Ferrari pits and the Pit Wall.
Cittadella Hall and Formula Uomo Hall
The 500 F2 and the Arno XI are displayed against the evocative backdrop of the Cittadella Ferrari and depictions of the historic factory gates on Via Abetone and all of the men and women that work at Ferrari. The Cittadella Hall is adjacent to the Formula Uomo Hall which introduces visitors to the brand’s philosophy of excellence.
The Victories Hall celebrates the many successes enjoyed by Scuderia Ferrari since its foundation which include no less than 15 World Drivers’ Titles and 16 World Constructors’ Titles. The 1999 to 2008 World Championship-winning single-seaters provide a unique backdrop to the story.
