Situated next to the track this modern motor museum is new and very well laid out, it was pretty quiet the day we visited, only 20 Euros for a family ticket. Cars and a few bikes from early motoring history through to the modern day Le Mans race cars. Our 2 teenage boys were fascinated by the exhibits as you can get up close to each of them - I had no idea that France produced all these cars

An assortment of vintage and modern cars, plus other history of racing. I visited after the 24 hour race was over so there was not a lot of people, giving me plenty of opportunity for photos. It was nice to be able to get so close to some amazing cars.

open all year but especially busy during the race this museum has historic cars from 80 years of the race and is a must do visit during the week of the race, but is also worth visiting if you just happen to be in Le mans on holiday

I visited the museum on June 15th 2012 one day before the 24 hour race so there were many people there, but no problem the exhibits were good I would recommend to anyone with an interest in cars to visit.
Plenty about the history of the great race entry cost €8:50 allow 1-2 hours to see everything.

Car's abound in this museum and you can literally go up and touch them. They even take some of them and race them in classic car races, so these aren't static displays. Lots and lots of rich automotive history here! You must see it!
