As already mentioned, the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale is divided in three different paths: the history of the motorbikes and the socio-cultural context in which they are inserted; the story of racing through the exhibition of racing cars and trophies and the last track that tells facts, people and technological innovations that made the Ducati history.
The history of motorcycles consist of a permanent exhibition in six halls: the First Room tells the origins of the brand until the Second World War; the Second Room shows models and technological innovations up to 1860; the Third Room, on the other hand, brings us back to the 60s and 70s, to the motion as a symbol of freedom, to the first Ducati Scrambler, until the late ’80s. The Fourth Room is dedicated to the most recent Ducati, from the first Monster to the mythical 996 (considered one of the most beautiful bikes of the century). the Fifth Room is dedicated to the latest models and big motorcycle rallies, such as the World Week. Here the enthusiasts will find the most modern Ducati brand creations, the solutions imported from the racing world as well as the latest models of Borgo Panigale’s home.
The Sixth Room or the Central Room is instead a tribute to the Races, from the first “Cucciolo” moped up to today’s racing models, telling the most important moments of the motorcycle factory: the great champions of the past, the classic races of the ’60s, the World Championship in SuperBike, up to the latest MotoGP races. Models, characters and history that have made the history of Ducati and together, the history of Italian and world motorcycling.
For those who are interested to visit the Museum from away, we suggest the virtual tour through Google Street View. We also note that it is possible to make a Factory Tour which will allow discovering not only how a Ducati motorcycle is born, but also to dive into business life.
