    We found this place by chance snooping on TA. A very nice surprise. Quality of the museums course, a lot of interaction and scarce to be stressed, courses for the disabled Visual and auditory. Count 2 to 3 hours of visit. Staff very friendly. Recommended for families with children from 6 years.

    Being not particularly interested by everything that revolves around the automobile, I still learned a lot of things on Michelin. For children, the Museum offers even a book to fill during the visit. If the address and right at the end, the child receives a reward. Allow between one hour and two hours depending on your pace for the visit.

    Last year passing Clermont to go to Vulcania, we decided to come back to visit the Museum of Michelin. We were very pleasantly surprised. Great places, the explanations and the staff. We have learned a lot about this company and the Michelin family. We have not seen the time past so the tour is interesting. We highly recommend this place.

    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
