The Basics

Divided into themed categories including automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, and airplanes, the more than 1,000 objects on display tell the story of how transportation has evolved over the past two centuries. Among the rarest objects in the exhibit are the first motorcycle to run on gas (dating from 1882), the only remaining Lancia Astura Mille Miglia automobile in the world, the 1929 Isotta Fraschini (a royal car), and the legendary F104 Starfighter plane.

The museum also houses other items of historical value, including musical instruments, cameras, typewriters, computers, and military objects. To save time at the entrance, buy your admission ticket online in advance.
