Ducati Museum

Google Maps and Street View have done a fabulous job adding motoring museums to their catalogs. Google has given visitors the chance to virtually visit fantastic exhibitions including the Honda Collection Hall, Lamborghini museum, Mazda museum and McLaren Technology Centre. The latest addition to the list is the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale, Bologna, Italy.

The 850-square-meter (9,149-square-foot) museum displays more than 40 motorcycles around a central, helmet-shaped theater and tells the entire history of Ducati from its beginning through modern MotoGP racing bikes. Rooms off to the sides focus on specific points in the brand’s history, such as its use of desmodromic valves on its motorcycles. Google really got into the details and even scanned the gift shop.
