The museum is a bit hard to find, it is South East of the Saumur city center, on a hill. There is an effort to put the tanks into a kind of story board, with a significant background ans wax mannequins. Extensive collection of WWI French tanks. Many WWII German, British and American tanks. There is a Tiger I (only... More

I visited this as apparently the top attraction to do so in Saumur- how it beat the Chateau I've no idea. Yes if you are obsessed with tanks you will probably love it- but all it was was several rooms full of tanks - no interactive activities and although I didn't have my children with me I would have thought...

I am neither an historian nor a lover a war museums as a whole, however there was so much to see. So many vehicles from all over the world as well as War memorabilia. Interesting items from WW2 showing different battles throughout France. We were there in late March, (early Spring) and the big sheds were freezing. Rug up! It's... More

Having heard a lot about the French tank museum at Saumur and having visited Bovington tank museum in the UK on a number of occasions, I decided it was time to travel a little further afield. The museum is easily accessible from the centre of Saumur either by walking or local bus. Home to the worlds only still running Tiger... More

A great selection of Tanks. Some modern and a few rare"white Elephants" Government wished they had never built. Global representation so not too many French pieces.

Unique collection of particularly French tanks and German WW2 tanks. Well laid out museum, plenty of room for the exhibits making photography easy. Exhibits are cleverly displayed, information on each in dual language, clear and concise. Information leaflets are very good. Well stocked shop with books, models, clothes, toys, souvenirs and staff very helpful and friendly. Slightly difficult to find... More

An interesting and comprehensive array of military vehicles from those used in the Great War to the present day. Displayed in chronological order you get a good idea how tanks especially have developed over time.
