“With just one hour of opening each day not enough time to see all.”
Review of Museum Moto Guzzi

Museum Moto Guzzi

Reviewed 25 June 2017

Thought the museum web site had an error in saying the museum was open only from 3pm to 4pm daily, but no, this place of significant motor cycle history is only open for 1 hour. The factory which dates from the 1920's now just assembles the bikes with all parts supplied by the Piaggio company.

The museum has two galleries [ground floor and upper floor] with a large number of machines from the very first up to modern day.

Each machine has very limited information though. Gem's like the 500cc V8 from the 1950's on display in original condition.

Plus quite a few experimental machines.

If you like bikes its worth a visit, its also free, but i would rather have paid an entry fee and had more time to see the bikes.

Was not very busy the day we went [23rd JUNE] and maybe 20 persons in the hour.

They should do a lot more to promote and maintain the history of this once great motorcycle maker.

If you love motorcycles like my husband, you need to go. It's not big, but it was great. They are only open between 3:00 and 4:00pm. They give you a guided tour. The guide does not speak English. But that didn't seem to be a problem. It is right off the train station.

This visit was made barely four weeks after my Guzzi was written off in a accident, but it didn't stop me (as a now ex-Guzzi owner!) from visiting this wonderful, quirky place.
Firstly, it's only open Mon - Fri from 3:00pm -4:00pm, secondly don't expect an all singing dancing museum with gift shop, cafe etc 'cos you won't get it. What you do get however, is a no frills two floor display of the complete history of the Moto Guzzi marque, including prototypes, record breakers and some superb racing motorcycles including the fabulous V8 500 and the lesser known but equally stunning in-line 4.
If you are anywhere near and only have even a passing interest in motorcycles make the effort to go, and prepare to be amazed!

Last here about 30 years ago! Museum has odd opening hours (1500 - 1600 weekdays, check website for exceptions). I had a spare day in my trip, so took the train from Milan - well worth it.

This is a real hidden gem. There is so much history in this museum, from the original 1919 model to today, with all the variations on the way and entry was free.

If you like racing, it's there. If you like military and police vehicles, it's there. If you want to see all the various models and how they came to be, it's all there.

There is a downside. The museum is only open weekdays between 3:00pm and 4:00pm and you need the full hour to enjoy it fully.

Best way to get there for us was a train to Mandello del Lario. You can see the museum front entrance from the station.
