Indeed, the museum houses an impressive collection of vehicules of all kinds, including the oldest specimens which date from the early twentieth century: cars, lorries, motorcycles, bicycles, tractors, farm equipment, and even aircrafts, boats, tanks, and guns from World War II. You can also discover unique models such as the "Boutin" or "Benjamin" motorcycles or the type XI monoplane built by Blériot to perform his channel crossing. The museum also houses impressive machines such as the "Fountain" turbine which drove the mechanism of the huge waterwheel of the old mill, located inside the museum. Some of the mechanisms of these machines are still in operating today. Numerous knives and firearms can be found as well as several unusual items like unique wax heads of condemned people, or a mobile guillotine dating from the Revolution less
