By no means the largest motor museum I've visited but certainly worth a look in while at the track. Obviously focused on the history of Le Mans but it has some interesting cars and artifacts worth looking at.

I visited during the 24hr race and its a fantastic museum showing off some of the great classic cars and some of the previous winners of the race. There are a few other exhibits as well but really this is all about the motors that are on display. Well worht the 8 euro entry fee.

This is a decent enough car museum but a number of exhibits do not appear to have a great deal to do with the Le Mans race. There is not a great deal of narrative to accompany the exhibits, you really need to be an enthusiast to appreciate it.

Being a petrolhead, I ensured that Le Mans was a fuel stop on the way back to the UK. We decided to visit the museum as I don't normally get the chance during the face weekends. Wow.

Went to the museum on our way back from Hotel De France. In a great location right next to the 'new' circuit. Amazing value as well, only 8.5 euros each. Seems to be divided into 2 parts. The first part seem to concentrate on the historical aspect of the race, with mini biographies of the Le Mans greats etc. The... More

As we both like cars and racing, a visit to the 24hours LeMans museum was almost obligatory. Although it was enjoyable, it was a bit small and we had expected a bit more for the 8.50 euros entry fee. Perhaps they could include entry to the track, make the price 10.00, which would be better, rather than another 3.50 euros... More
