This should be a five star experience but.... The cars on display are fabulous but the curating is woeful. There is so little about the history of the cars and their manufacturers that it is almost criminal and it could be soooooo much better. Kids...More

We really did not enjoy this museum - 46 Euros for 1/2hr experience as that's all it took to get round. Very old fashioned museum, not worth the effort unless you like old fashioned French cars and are desperate for something to do!

Still run by the family of the original founder the collection houses some 150 cars, motorcycles, cycles and period "automobilia". Well worth a visit if you don't mind the somewhat pricey entrance fee.

Very disappointing museum. Lots of amazing cars displayed in a very dull way. A highlight of the display according to the advert was the Jeep cut away showing the transmission system. The jeep was parked in such a way you couldn't see half of it....More
