So, you’re stuck at home “working,” but you have a few minutes to kill. Why not take a spin through one of these amazing automobile museums across the world (most are closed for the time being, anyway). Thanks to the magic of YouTube, now you can! Be it German engineering, the artistry of the Italian automakers, or proper McLaren speed, they’re all here. Full warning, some have a voiceover, some don’t, and some aren’t in English. But you’ll be able to see the exhibits just fine.

Mercedes-Benz Museum

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, has been welcoming guests since 2006. The museum focuses not just on the vehicles of the company’s past, but also on what historical events were occurring at the same time. You can take the entire virtual tour here.

Mazda Museum at Hiroshima

The Mazda Museum in Hiroshima sits in the footprint of the factory and features, as we described, tons of delightfully weird motorized creations from the company’s past, as well as the modern stuff we know and love. Guys, there’s a room with every rotary engine the company ever created. Also, Miatas and the 787B.

Porsche Museum

This Porsche Museum tour is from YouTube automotive star Shmee150 and has almost a half-million views. The museum has everything from Porsche’s first vehicles to its racing greats and modern marvels. There are at least 80 vehicles on display along with many other small exhibits.

Ferrari Museums in Modena and Maranello

This eight-minute video takes you to both Ferrari museums in Italy. The first is in Modena and features the house that Enzo Ferrari was raised in along with the company’s lineup of magnificent engines. Later our host goes to the Ferrari factory museum in Maranello to see some rare motorcycles, race cars and more modern machinery.

McLaren Technology Centre

This tour is a little more special than the rest because usually, the public can’t get in to the McLaren Technical Centre due to, you know, secret racing technology. There are special occasions, and you can get in if you’re a McLaren VIP, but these 19 minutes are probably the closest you and I can get. The “boulevard,” as MTC calls it, features tons of Formula 1 and street cars, including a few special editions that you won’t see anywhere else.

BMW Museum

The BMW Museum has been open since 1973 and is one of the most frequently visited company museums in Germany. It features 120 original exhibits along with traveling exhibits with other varying topics. There’s no host or voiceover in this video, so you’re free to enjoy the visuals as you would if you were attending.

Lamborghini Factory and Museum Tour

The Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese brings 50 years of innovation in Raging Bull form. The museum has interactive features and driving simulators, in addition to the standard fare. You can also take a tour of the production lines, including where the Huracan’s V10 and the Aventador’s V12 are built.
