Still run by the family of the original founder the collection houses some 150 cars, motorcycles, cycles and period "automobilia". Well worth a visit if you don't mind the somewhat pricey entrance fee.

Very disappointing museum. Lots of amazing cars displayed in a very dull way. A highlight of the display according to the advert was the Jeep cut away showing the transmission system. The jeep was parked in such a way you couldn't see half of it....More

Fantastic trip through out the years of cars, bicycles and motorbikes industry. My son loved the Maserati and the Ferrari Dyno. I personally loved the Facel and the BNC. Would recommend to any car lovers. A great family owned museum, fantastic collection.

Never seen so many cars from the turn of the last century, but rather disappointingly displayed in straight lines behind barriers so you could not walk around them. Most are in original unrestored condition which is good to see.

if you love cars this is a super place to retreat to - either in the heat of the summer or to avoid that occasional cloudy and wet day in the Vendee. No gimmicks - just an orderly array of French cars - wander around...More

The variety of of old cars and some more recent is great, but then anything with an engine and wheels and I'm there. these places have a smell about them. free parking just off the main Sables road before the speed camera.
