  • The Museum Maurice Dufresne is very rich and offers a large exhibition area. Some parts are clean as the planner of "The great MOP". There are many agricultural machines then he must love it! Nice visit!

  • in love with the old farm machinery and other this museum is for you very nice to see old cars and all sorts of things that are retrieved by the former master of snack places on the spot (it's really the troubleshooting) to advise

  • Maurice Dufresne, a collector of metal in the region, has accumulated during his professional life of objects and vehicles of all kinds: cars, tractors, locomotives, toys,... This incredible collection is worth a visit, there are some real gems and most of the exhibits are accompanied by a comment on their conditions of recovery... Not to be missed

  • Excellent 2 centuries of machinery in a huge place. A historic and amazing ballad. A must-see. And few people place quiet on the banks of l indre.
