If you are a true automotive fan, you will surely know about this popular car maker of Italy, who is responsible for introducing a few most luxurious sports cars. Nestled in the Sant’Agata Bolognese hamlet, the Lamborghini Museum just speaks about the progress of this legend from vintage to race to concept cars! Many of us tend to think that visiting this museum is not that easy, but it is not so. A majority of the Web sites recommend of arranging the trip ahead of time (four days before), but I went without pre-arranging anything.

The Lamborghini complex is the home to the still active Lamborghini factory as well as a top-quality museum. For the tourists who love Lamborghinis, a trip here it is like a dual fun in form of factory where they can see the production process and museum where they can capture the glow of the shining cars. In addition, the best part of the museum is its window looking over the factory floor, which means you actually get a chance to explore the processes of the Lamborghinis.

The Lamborghini Museum, after renovated in 2001, is the home of an unbelievable collection of cars sprinkled on two levels. As you would think of, the cars here are polished to shine well, but something that you might not have thought about is the fact that some vintage cars really show their aging signs. You will be even more excited to know that several cars here on display directly belong to the initiator’s personal collection.

On the first floor, you will really come across a parking lot where multitudes of the Lamborghinis that belong to the different decades are arranged along the walls, while many others are placed differently from the car rows. Now here, I must tell you that I am not a car tech person; so just looking at these cars and taking a photograph of them was the only job of mine here; instead of finding out the other details here. On the other hand, the second floor is the holder of a few race cars that were produced during the 1980s and 1990s along with a few concept cars. However, the main draw here is that famous window that allows you to peep into the factory floor. Yes, this is the one of the top draws of the Lamborghini Museum.

As per the Lamborghini Web site, guided tours of the factory as well as the museum are offered here. If this is your choice, you will surely go for a visit in advance. However, if you want to avoid spending that additional money for the tour of factory or if you have small children whose entry is not permitted into the factory, the museum’s window is the best way to know what’s going on the production floor for no cost.
