Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile

Guardian and testimony of artisanal and industrial creativity linked to the world of motors, the “Avv. Giovanni Agnelli” National Automobile Museum is a journey through the history of the automobile to tell the story of its evolution from means of transport to cult object, but also the epochal transformations that have influenced society, custom and the way of life. Among the rarest and most interesting collections in its kind, with over 200 original vehicles, of 80 different car brands, on display at the premises at Corso Unità d’Italia 40, the Turin museum is one of the world’s most famous technical-scientific museums, but it has been conceived to engage a very vast and diverse public.

Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile

Guardian and testimony of artisanal and industrial creativity linked to the world of motors,
the “Avv. Giovanni Agnelli” National Automobile Museum is a journey through the history
of the automobile to tell the story of its evolution from means of transport to cult object, but also
the epochal transformations that have influenced society, custom and the way of life. Among the
rarest and most interesting collections in its kind, with over 200 original vehicles, of 80
different car brands, on display at the premises at Corso Unità d’Italia 40, the Turin
museum is one of the world’s most famous technical-scientific museums, but it has been
conceived to engage a very vast and diverse public.
Mission and values
A place for meeting and discussion, collecting experiences and ideas, a living and
participated space: the National Automobile Museum is a bridge between past and future
and, above all, a real laboratory, in which the history of the automobile and the thousand stories
that it includes (of trades, artisans, bodywork experts, applied technologies, scientific innovations
and creativity) become inspiration for thought and for the future. The entertaining and engaging
display, together with a user-friendly, up-to-date analysis of the subject, makes the
museum a place to frequent not just to visit.
“The automobile – declares museum chairman Benedetto Camerana – is a synthesis of
modernity, and the MAUTO stages its history, displays its present, which is rapidly transforming
on a global scale, and offers previews of the future, looking at independent driving systems and
innovative methods of propulsion. The museum is in Turin, where 70 car manufacturers and 80
bodywork specialists were established in just over a century. And Turin is still a crucial
international epicentre for car design and engineering. Being a national museum, it represents an
Italy which has given so much to the history of the automobile, in industry, innovation, design and
competitions. This is the identity of the MAUTO: its long history, its splendid premises and its
outstanding display make it one of the best-loved museums in the world. Today, the MAUTO has
a dual plan: to be a centre of comparison for ideas and innovative projects (from design to
restoration), and a driver of international promotion for the city and the territory”.
