FERRARI MUSEUM -MARANELLO (MODENA)
Immerse yourself in the Ferrari story past and present, and top off the experience with a bit of time travel to the future too. The Maranello Museum tells the Ferrari story by delving deep into the Prancing Horse’s extraordinary roots and taking visitors on a magnificent journey via its most famous and successful F1 cars, legendary sports prototypes and GTs, and, of course, the road cars that have set the benchmark for the entire car industry. For enthusiasts eager for an even more all-around experience, a regular shuttle bus link to the Museo Enzo Ferrari in Modena runs throughout the entire day, departing from the Ferrari Museum plaza in Maranello.
Two semi-professional simulators are available to give visitors a taste of the exhilaration of driving a Prancing Horse F1 single-seater during their time at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello. They will also have a choice of some of the world’s most famous circuits: Monza, Barcelona, Silverstone, Imola, Nürbürgring, Zandvoort, SPA Francorchamps and Mugello. The car lets the occupant feel the track surface, responds very realistically if it hits the rubbing strip, for instance, and, most importantly of all, is extraordinarily sensitive to both throttle and brake, delivering all the thrill of the speed only a car this sophisticated can deliver. But with one very important advantage: no matter how many prangs or spins you have, you’ll still be able to get back on the track with no collateral damage!Before getting into the cockpit, potential drivers are given a briefing by a driver or technician to explain how to use the F1 paddles mounted behind the steering wheel to control the gearbox and also which gears to use at the make-or-break points on the circuits. An extraordinary experience you won’t be able to wait to tell your friends about or even post online to share the excitement with those not lucky enough to have experienced driving an F1 car! Although it has professional settings, the simulator is calibrated for “gentleman” drivers. Those with previous racing or simulator experience can also, however, request a professional set-up.
Duration and cost: one race, duration 7 minutes, €25 including VAT.The Museum has a shop where visitors can purchase a vast array of official Ferrari merchandise including a selection of items dedicated specifically to the Maranello museum itself.Also just 500 metres from the Museum is the Ferrari Store which is strategically located directly across from the historic factory gates.

There are also excellent children and ladies ranges. All in all, there is something to delight visitors of all kinds at the Ferrari Store.
