History of the Museum
The National Automobile Museum – MAUTO – was founded in 1933, and opened to the public in the autumn of 1960. It was completely renovated and enlarged to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy and, after being closed for four years, the museum reopened again in 2011.
Two years later the Times ranked MAUTO among the 50 most beautiful museums in the world. MAUTO showcases the evolution of the automobile told through 200 cars. There is a permanent exhibition that houses an impressive collection: about 150 cars are on display, plus cars that are on temporary loan.
