The Piaggio Museum was inaugurated in 2000 in the tooling department of the ancient factory, one of the oldest and most evocative units of the Pontedera factory complex, where the company transferred its production in the early ‘20s. The Museum was created to preserve and highlight the value and the historic legacy of one of the oldest Italian companies, and focuses on the reconstruction of Piaggio activities in the area. Exhibiting the most representative products and giving access to the rich documentation of the Piaggio Historical Archive, the museum traces a long period of Italian history, a history made of economic transformations, alongside industrial and social development.
Entirely renovated in 2018, the Piaggio Museum boasts a surface area of 5.000 m², over 250 pieces exhibited, more than 600.000 visitors.
It has become today the largest and most comprehensive Italian museum dedicated to two wheels, including rare or unique examples.
The Museum halls contain testaments to Piaggio pre-war aeronautical and rail production, the rich and admired Vespa collection, the Piaggio three and four wheels collection (Ape, Porter, mopeds) and numerous pieces belonging to the motorcycle and sport history of the Group brands: Aprilia, Gilera and Moto Guzzi, which all together boast the brilliant result of 104 world titles in various competitions, from Supermoto to MotoGP, from Trial to SBK.
The Museum also dedicates 340 m² to temporary exhibitions all the year round
