    Lamborghini Museum & Factory 4 more images

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in Sant'Agata Bolognese, 35 km from Bologna, is the Lamborghini Factory & Museum. We headed there one afternoon to have a drool over the delicious cars.

    We were told we had to make an appointment in advance to visit the museum, so I rang a couple of weeks prior to our visit to book a time. However, when we arrived we were able to just wander around and no one questioned us or asked for our name.

    The museum is basically filled with Lamborghinis. It is set over two levels, and there is a fabulous range of old and new cars, along with several formula 1 cars. I really loved the old red 350GT with a square rear-end, and the bright green Countach.

    From the 2nd level of the museum you could peek into the adjoining factory. It was really interesting actually being able to see the Lamborghini assembly line, albeit from a distance.

    Museum Hours: Mon-Fri 9am - 12noon & 2pm - 5pm
    Entrance is free of charge.
