As a family of car enthusiasts, we thoroughly enjoyed our stop off here. Lots of great cars showing the full history of the Le Mans 24 hours. Would recommend downloading the GuidiGO app which provided a commentary around the museum with lots of additional information.

The Sarthe Motorcar Museum at Le Mans race track is a terrific modern museum with great interpretation and interactive displays. We visited for the Classic Car Races this year and many of the cars on display were on the track the day before. The vehicles are interesting and good quality, well displayed with easy access and directions. Highly recommended to... More

This is a good museum and a great stop off for a break on the way to the south. There are some nice exhibits although you can't help feeling there is something missing. I think it's the story. I wonder if, because the people who built it were engulfed in the history already, that they weren't equipped to stand back... More

Visited on a Saturday and there were only 2 people working there it seemed; one on the front desk & one in the cafe. The cafe is OK, but needed more staff (the person from the front desk did help after a while) and the portions were a bit hit & miss; baguettes are the better value but make sure... More

If you are into cars then this museum is a must. Excellent value and fantastic display of cars. It is a little biased towards French cars but who cares.
