  • We came in this museum on a Sunday around 1 pm thanks reviews read on this site. After a hesitation given the €9 requested, we decided. At our entrance, nice surprise, entry nice and beautiful presentation. First flat the application available on phone for the audio guide does not work. The person at the front desk gave me a free audioguide (normally charged € 2.5). Second flat presentation is chronological but is very confusing. Even the plan given to the home is not readable. The meaning of visit is very hard to follow. After the two first parts concerning car models from the origin to the 1940s include beautiful, very well renovated and very interesting models. But the last parts on newer vehicles (after 50 years), racing vehicles and utility, is a cluster of models without much consistency. The worst is at the end of the Museum on the very recent (years 90-2000) models and concept cars, there are very few models completely unrelated (except for the series of vehicles used for TAXI movies). In conclusion, very disappointed for a museum that could be much more interesting with better organization and more money (you really feel a lack of money for the management of this Museum). Too bad!

  • The Peugeot in Sochaux Museum is not only a museum but a retrospective of the local industry, recalling the history of the firm which manufactured cycles motorized or not, windmills on peppers, tools, radios... Style art deco Museum is very successful and showcases the beautiful body of the beautiful time of there car. Worth the trip.

  • This tour of adventure Peugeot has completed us two visits to museums Porsche and Mercedes in Stuttgart. We liked the very neat presentation, the different evolutions of the 'product' Peugeot, since the coffee mill, through the bike, and all the range of vehicles.

  • Great museum with lots of cars and other items that Peugeot have manufactured over the years. Good bistro too. Well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic place, worth to see. The only thing is missing is the most famous Peugeot from Taxi Series movie.
  • All the history of Peugeot from making grinders and shavers to now... The place is big. Interesting
  • A great museum that encompasses the complete history of an interesting concept art manufacturer.
  • Great museum with not only cars but also bikes and all kind made by Peugeot. Only bad point, the cashier was VERY RUDE!
