This museum not only features a large display of Vespas dating back to the 1940s but also has a separate showroom dedicated the Ape vehicles as well as electric bicycles. Colorful displays and interesting facts abound in this museum.

Very nice place to spend a couple of hours looking at historic and unusual Vespas and other motorcycles. Only a couple of other visitors while I was there. No admission if I remember correctly.

I have owned a Vespa for 35 years so I love to visit this museum. It''s free, all of the staff are friendly so there can be nothing to complain about. The town is also very pretty for a visit after the museum.
