Musee Automobile de Vendee, Talmont Saint Hilaire
(3.2/5 based on 100+ 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.
