Musee Automobile de Vendee, Talmont Saint Hilaire

(3.2/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Gaston Giron's passion for automobiles is the fuel behind the Musee Automobile de Vendee. In 1939, Giron began displaying his collection of antique cars to the public, this small act of love turned into a museum over 200 vehicles strong. The collection spans time with models as early as 1885, to prototypes for the cars of the future, or at least what car manufacturers thought would be the future in the 1980s. The cars are showcased along the length of a gallery where the walls are decorated with vintage advertising touting the assets of their "new" models.

  • In love with cars and especially vintage I found my happiness at the Vendée auto Museum! The owner are very friendly and passionate! It's nice!

  • Still run by the family of the original founder the collection houses some 150 cars, motorcycles, cycles and period "automobilia". Well worth a visit if you don't mind the somewhat pricey entrance fee...  more »
  • Not particularly fan of cars, to discover with pleasure, a rainy day or when the beach is too crowded. Friendly staff. And pleasant visit. Well kept and beautiful old cars. A trip back in time
