Milan is considered one of the most visited cities in Italy and is especially loved by people who know how to enjoy an urban vacation full of cultural events, museums, and galleries. As such, it attracts many visitors every year, including families with small children and since most of these activities are done in indoor or closed places, it is great for visiting even in cool and rainy months.
If you are a museum lover and especially if love for the automotive world runs through your veins, you will find the Alfa Romeo Museum to be one of the most interesting places and it is considered a wonderful place to visit even with small children. The only catch, if you can call it that, is that it is a place relatively far from the city center and it is not part of the main public transportation routes, so if you rely on the city transportation and do not have a rental car, it is about an hour’s drive.
If you have decided that this hour is worth it, you are in for a fun experience that should be saved for a rainy day because it is a closed place. This is the official museum of one of the most famous car brands in the world, it is Alfa Romeo, during the visit of which you can be impressed by a spectacular collection of cars with different models, some of which you probably did not know, and even go down to the resolution of the different spare parts.
Although there are more famous museums in Milan, this museum attracts many tourists every year, probably also thanks to the fact that it allows a fascinating glimpse into the history of the automotive world (or at least that related to Alfa Romeo) which is not only reserved for modern car models but extends over more than a hundred years and includes, among others, racing cars, trams, trains, tractors, and airplanes.
All of these and more you can see during a fun tour around the museum, which includes no less than six floors including additional, unique, and original projects such as prototypes that were not shown to the general public until they were presented in the museum, various and unusual concept cars and much more.
