Musee Automobile de Vendee, Talmont Saint Hilaire

3.5
#5 of 29 in Museums in Vendee
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.

  • Enjoyable walk round. As mentioned tad expensive. Worth a visit amazing collection of vehicles.
  • It was a great couple of hours there and they even had a Ferrari Dinosaur which my Daughter thought was fantastic. The two of us paid only 20 Euro to enter. Great value also.
  • Was looking forward to this felt a bit let down. Costly for the time spent there.
  • Worth stopping by... A few very nice cars...
  • Welcoming staff and very well restored vehicles. For what is the price of entry, it is a bit expensive given the quality of the views and explanations. We had an impression of old vehicles restored in a hangar storage. The price of the miniatures collection is very high relative to the same reference in the specialized trade.
