Superbly laid out and set museum and restaurant. Four, separate, large halls filled with motoring history and exotica. I especially loved the McLaren and Ferrari displays. A special thank you to Ancheri for her lovely, pleasant service at the restaurant.

What a clean and well kept museum. Beautiful cars kept in four well lit and clean spaces. I loved the visit. It could be a bit expensive for big groups, but if you are in the area, visit.
