  • A nice Museum where they learn many things and where the boys appreciate beautiful cars! However the visit circuit bof we walk we walk you can see the village but it nothing transcendent. The stands are quite impressive. A nice visit with 3 boys fan of racing cars.

  • You take full eyes, parents and kids have loved them, really nice, racing vehicles really beautiful, all kinds of vehicles of collection but also of old brand forgotten or missing vehicles, great for the history of the automobile. We do free visit, they'll do it again with guided tour for an experience even more rewarding. 5 stars and more!

  • This museum is large enough and allows to see a large number of specimens of vehicles have contributed to the competitions, in a classic chronological. But something is missing. The information is brief (apart from the eternal projection with archival footage), or even absent, (lighting, decoration) development could be better.

  • Friendly people and a nice atmosphere (you can smell rubber and gasoline). Lot's of things to see and explained - apart from Le Mans racers there's also a big collection of classical French cars. Unfortunately some parts of the tour are only in French. I also visited the track (only €3,50) which was nice to do.
  • Brilliant experience. Staff are helpful and friendly, the museum is interesting with creative exhibits and a beautifully preserved collection of cars. A must - do for any racing fan. If you're lucky there will be cars or bikes on the track, for a small fee you can visit the track itself to watch.
  • If you like the race, this museum is far better than you would imagine. If you don't know anything about Motorsport , there are lots of very nice cars to look at.
  • Highly recommended. Ideal for sports car mad kids of all ages.
  • Great value and a lovely collection of cars and history.
