  • The history of the factory and the MICHELIN tire is presented in a very interesting way. It is caught in the game, the set design is original and very well done. Is a family, but there must be at least 2 hours to tour. A success, I did 4 years ago, but I plan to go back soon.

  • Museum on the history of michelin. Very interesting and fun. Like the great and small. Too bad the lack of audio guide in Italian; worth a visit anyway. About 2 hours.

  • Pretty interesting. Not sure if it is worth 9.50€. Was hoping to see more of the factory and how they are produced. Definitely one of the better things to do in Clermont-Ferrand. There is a free app you can download to your phone instead of paying extra for the ear piece
  • Interesting to look around and not too expensive. Tour is in English and French but had guides for different languages
  • Interesting museum. Lots to see. You can take your time and spend a couple of hours, easily.
  • I really enjoyed coming here! There is no possible way to get bored when you come. There is lots of fun information for everyone, young, teenager and adult! You can even get a portable tour to hold and listen in your hand just for €2. You could easily spend your whole afternoon there, it's something you don't want to miss!
  • Great museum for families and childern
