About
With 400 vehicles on show, the Schlumpf Collection is certainly the most prestigious collection in the world. This is demonstrated by the two Bugatti Royales, including the famous Coupé Napoléon, the 150 Bugatti, Hispano-Suiza, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Maserati, Maybach, Mercedes models, etc. From the first car, a Panhard-Levassor from 1894, to the present day, the Cité de l'Automobile brings the saga of the automobile to life. A living history as visitors can start a vintage car with a crank.

Astonishing museum
Aug 2021
It is a fantastic museum. The cars are disposed in chronological order so that it is possible to see the evolution of the cars from late 1800 to early 1980. There is a section of old luxury cars astonishing.
My son loved the F1 cars and all the racing cars.
There is a Bugatti Veyron.....a modern jewel

Magical and Breathtaking Museum
Aug 2021
Understable why this museum is so mentioned as the best car museum in Europe as the museum offers a spectacular visit. The museum takes you through time giving you the sense of evolution to see how cars modernated. Near the end there is a section dedicated to Formula 1 cars more specifically the view of Michael Schumacher's Benetton and Damon Hill's Williams, both cars that won championships. The most amazing section of this museum was the stunning Bugatti Veyron. I have only seen two Bugatti's in my live so for me that moment was magical. If you're near this area then the museum is totally worth it.

Great European antique car collection
Jun 2021
Fascinating collection of antique European cars including a lot of Bugattis. This was the collection of a local business owner who amassed it over 50 years. The tour is fascinating and interesting.

There is the option (Extra Euros) to ride one of the old cars around a track, but we did not try this.

Absolutely Breaathtaking Car Museum
Sep 2020
This museum is very impressive, not only for the collection of cars but also the building. It really is amazing what the brothers Schlump could collect - all in secret. One can follow the development of the motor car in this exhibition.

At these premises one can rent a classic car from a wide variety and drive it on the museum's exterior track. I intend to do so next time.

Best Auto Museum in the World!

I have been singing the praises of this museum ever since our visit. Lots of exotic and unusual European vehicles with explanations of their manufacture. Some are works of art. It's a huge display so come with a lot of time.

The Best Auto Museum in the World
Jan 2020
I have been raving about this museum ever since our visit. It is far and away the best auto museum I have ever been too. Lots of exotic models from Europe that I have never heard of, many of them works of art. Nice simple display with some historic explanations. This is an incredible museum.
