The MUDETEC looks forward with an eye on the past.
Back in April 2019, we reported on Lamborghini's museum in Sant'Agata Bolognese, called the MUDETEC. The attraction to this site is so great that we covered the sightseeing destination again just a couple of months later. Then, because of the global pandemic, the museum had to close its doors before reopening them in July of last year. The pandemic reared its ugly head again, forcing the MUDETEC to close once more. Now, the museum is ready to open again and is doing so with a new exhibition called "Future Is Our Legacy", focused on both innovation and tradition.
The reopening also celebrates the MUDETEC's 20th anniversary, which happens to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the legendary Countach. The new exhibition is divided over two floors, with the entrance offering a tunnel that plays the unmistakable sound of the V12 engine along with a video celebrating the iconic V12 models that Lamborghini is renowned for. The tour then takes you past models produced from the '60s to the '90s, from the Miura to the Diablo, before introducing you to two futuristic models in the Essenza SCV12 and the Vision GT. Then you make your way to the second floor, where the Countach is sat on a platform overlooking models produced since 2000.
The tour then continues past limited editions like the Reventon, Sesto Elemento, Veneno, Centenario, and the first-ever Lamborghini with hybrid technology, the Sian. Once you're done looking at all the stunning models on display, there's also a driving simulator for you to try out which includes a new "social pass-by card" feature, with which you can take a photo next to your favorite Lamborghini model, share it directly to social media, and get a printed copy to keep as a memento.
The museum reopens its doors on May 3 and will be open daily from 09:30 to 18:00, besides for closures on August 15 and December 25. Reservations for tours can be made on the Lamborghini website, as pandemic concerns are limiting tours to 12 visitors every half hour.
