Definitely worth a visit
Jul 2020
This is a charming collection of antique mechanical devices, from early generators to washing machines, most of which appear to be restored to full functionality. A great enhancement to a visit to Monet’s Gardens.

A pleasant surprise!!
Aug 2019
As we strolled the streets in Giverny after seeing Monet's house and gardens, we came across a sign for this museum. For those interested in all things mechanical and historical, this is a wonderful collection of engines and farm machinery and more.

All things mechanical.
Sep 2019
An excellent collection of engines, tractors, generators, mechanical washing machines and more. The proprietor and associates are passionate about their subject and speak fairly good English too. Many of the item descriptions have been translated into English (turn the sheet over). This is my second visit and definitely not my last.

Monet’s museum is nice. But this is the museum for guys. All sorts of old machine — and they all work. Fun looking at them and figuring out how they work. MAKE THE TIME TO GO

Great collection of machines

A great collection of engines and mechanical parts! The best thing about this museum is that it is a private one, you can sense the love and the passion of the owner for the engines. We really enjoyed it, a big thank you to the owner for opening his garage and sharing his collection and passion!

Simply wonderful
Sep 2017 • Couples
For a bloke of a certain age like me this was heaven.

Wonderful old machines beautifully restored and with detailed descriptions of what the did and where they came from.

There is an intrinsic beauty in these motors, the size and weight of giant flywheel inside something akin to wonder in me.

My wife also enjoyed it by the way ;-)

Free entry but leave a donation to enable this amazing collection to continue.

Special mechanical tour and visit!
Jun 2016 • Solo
Specially arranged visit from frequent visitors to Giverny. My host had suggested I pay a visit and I'm glad I did. I'm from the Midwest and I was really surprised when I found a Fuller Johnson engine up against a wall. These were made in Madison, Wisconsin and I couldn't help but wonder how this engine came to live in France! We started just about all the runable engines and watched some videos from engine shows that they have had in Giverny. Youi should arrange for a visit!

For the guys, its excellent!

But for me it was still very good! And I was glad to spend an hour looking at interesting old machines and listening to fellows discussing passionately all things mechanical. I owed them that after they wandered through Monet's garden with me! Ha! But do not miss this wonderful museum created and maintained by a family devoted to preserving the memories of all things mechanical. It makes a good balance with the gardens and home of Monet!
