  • Beautiful Museum to present the famous 24 hours of le Mans. What a pleasure to see the different race cars up close. The exhibition on the Bollée family cars is very interesting. Very nice collection of miniature cars involved in the race. Free for children under 10 years Museum.

  • Nice, the person also suggested us the visit of the circuit for €1,50, and we regretted not, it's really nice to walk along this legendary circuit, plus a few cars were running. The museum itself is also worth a visit, they cannot be reduced to race cars, there are also beautiful old cars. It was a moment much pleasant visit!

  • A living museum, large car race and ancestor lacked the fetish car like the bugatti 35. Also lacks a formula 1, the comparison with the car for 24 hours of le mans would be nice

  • 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.
  • A a personal tour by the curator. What an amazing place, such history of the Le Mans 24 hour. Great cars and a fantastic experience.
  • 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.
