With the mission to educate youth and give a totally new dimension to the word ‘museum’ in 2001 the Ducati museum came into being. The museum in its true sense gives you the luxury of remembering the past and see the production line of the future.
One can see the entire range of Ducati motorcycles all of which showcases stunning authenticity and simplicity, at the same time visit the factory to witness the concepts and philosophy that makes Ducati motorcycle exclusive.
The rare techniques like desmodromic system (1956), L-twin engine (1970), Trellis Frame (1980) and valve cylinder (1986) were introduced by Ducati and are displayed at the museum. The tour is undoubtedly a paradise for a motorcycle buff, but the extremely knowledgeable and engaging guides make the newbies equally interested.
The fascinating display of these beautiful bikes is glorified by the stories that tie them with the rider. One can rightly say that the success of Ducati lies in the undying passion of the Ducati family very evidently seen at the museum and the production line.

A place where you can meet a piece of motorcycling history and have a blink toward the future of it. Premium brand, forged proudly day by day since 1946 by professionals with carrying hands. You can find here powerful, beautifully designed street bikes and of course high tech sport champions! If you have the opportunity to pay a visit, don't miss it! I recommend it warmly! Forza Ducati!
We did the factory tour and museum. I am not a motor cycle enthusiast but enjoyed the tour immensely. The history is amazing and we saw the entire assembly process for various models - all of which are assembled by hand. We saw them testing the bikes and the various measures for assuring quality. The museum was great. Lots if history with a self-guided tour. Well worth the visit.
A small but amazing collection of Ducati motorbikes from their origins through to their current models. Rather traditional in terms of how information is presented. Limited opportunities for interaction.
We came to Italy for the MotoGP race and it was a MUST that we visit Ducati. What a bucket list place. There is so much history here. Not just racing history either. Stuff that predates Ducati racing. We arrived around shift change and it was interesting to see everyone leaving work for the day. They all had smiles on their faces and looked like they genuinely enjoyed their jobs. I will go back to the museum one day.
The factory tour is really the experience you come for, but the museum was nice as well. I owned a Ducati for years but am not a super-fan, I don't know any of their racing history... If you do, this museum is probably amazing. There isn't much written info or history here, mostly just the bikes. And I am very interested in the unique aspects of their bikes' engineering, which was not covered here at all. But all in all, still a nice experience for the average rider, especially since it's free with the 30 euro factory tour.
