  • Very nice collections in a spacious place. Tractors and a gallery with scenes from the agricultural world of the last century. To visit with children. Very good welcome.

  • Hello, passing through the city of Chartres and visit of the Museum COMPA I was amazed to see very well preserved agricultural machinery, damage the lack of room to turn well around the vehicles. The takeover by the Town Hall of the large lot before which allowed to make room at a bus station, instead of leaving it to the Museum that could have taken out the gear. So the Museum is going to be moved to Bonneval. Chartres closes all its museums Chartres is dying

  • A very nice exhibition that shows the evolution of agriculture through its material, its tools and its men and women. The material is well exposed, in excellent condition and many growers who visit this exhibition must have too many emotions and memories that invade them. It's a very nice idea, especially well done. We were greeted by a charming young man who explained the plan of the exhibition with passion and kindness. Very nice return to the past to arrive until today.

  • Very noisy place especially when there are children. The home attendants are not very respectful of other visitors, screaming about the kids does not give a good picture of the place. The video room is not soundproof impossible to follow the comments seen the surrounding hubbub.

  • No parking possible, so I advise you to go there by public transport, otherwise soon the Compa will no longer then enjoy the last visits possible before its definitive closure. It is unfortunate, saying that a few decades ago the trains were turning around. It's a story page that's going to be turned.
