  • Nice little museum with cars representing the different time periods of the race.
  • 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.
  • Makes you feel like a schoolboy again!
  • 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.
  • Nice track and museum to visit for car fans
