  • At first glance you think there is not much here but this was our second visit we loved it so much the first time. Great history of the 24 hour Le mans race circuit and plenty of cars to look at. So q...  more »

  • Wow so exciting to be here ! Easy parking and nice cafe. Display fascinating and of course mainly French cars Shop was disappointing mainly clothing and books. We wanted smaller cheaper items.
  • Definitely a great place to visit and the staff were very helpful. It was 8.5 euros entrance fee but if you wanted to visit the circuit as well the total cost was 10 euros. We thought it would be packed but we virtually had the place to ourselves (end of July). I took one star off just because, other than vending machines, there appeared to be nowhere else to get any refreshments.
  • A great experience for anyone with even a a slight interest in cars. Really well laid out with film shows and top level automobiles on exhibition - I loved it and so did the family (wife, boy 15 years and girl 10years). Shop has stuff to dream of but a bit expensive for me (or I'm too mean)
  • Full of history and informative, and a great car collection, make sure you can get on to the track before you go as sometimes it is closed .
  • Old and older iconic cars. Some of them racing cars, others just historic. Nice to visit.
