A small museum but with plenty of cars, some very rare cars as well. Only took us around an hour to walk around but the entry fee was very reasonable. Wasn't a lot to keep the kids occupied so an hour was probably about right.

Nice collection of mostly french cars, lots of very rare cars. One family owned museum since 1967, good workshop, very nice and helpful enthusiastic staff, beautiful renovated and original patina cars. Also contemporary rare prototypes and historic race cars. Wothy to see not only for oldtimer fans, nice exhibition with automobilia items. I would like come again. http://www.musee-auto-vendee.com/ http://freeride.rajce.idnes.cz/Musee_Automobile_de_Vendee/

We drove from St Hilaire to see this and as the film states, ..worth waiting for! A personal collection of automobiles, very rare, very secret for so many years. The place does hark back to the golden eras of European and particularly French auto pioneering. We were very impressed with the unspoiled nature of the exhibits...very natural. Most enjoyable.

Having driven past this Museum several times, a lovely wet day prompted us to stop for a visit. A very pleasant lady met us and we had an unhurried hour exploring the wide range of vehicles. A little dusty perhaps for younger kids, the museum is reasonably priced, with enough interesting contents to keep you occupied for a few hours!

Quite a lot of interesting cars but they do not look very well kept.
