Went to the museum on our way back from Hotel De France. In a great location right next to the 'new' circuit. Amazing value as well, only 8.5 euros each. Seems to be divided into 2 parts. The first part seem to concentrate on the historical aspect of the race, with mini biographies of the Le Mans greats etc. The... More

I've been looking forward to visiting the museum all week as its the last visit on our holiday road trip. It did not disappoint!! If you like cars you MUST visit. They have an amazing range of cars from the 1900 to the latest race cars. It's a great collection of cars not just race cars. Also the cafe inside... More

As we both like cars and racing, a visit to the 24hours LeMans museum was almost obligatory. Although it was enjoyable, it was a bit small and we had expected a bit more for the 8.50 euros entry fee. Perhaps they could include entry to the track, make the price 10.00, which would be better, rather than another 3.50 euros... More

Met expectations. Immaculately restored exhibits throughout. Tracks the course of racing at Le Mans beautifully. Would recommend.

This museum has race cars from years of Le Mans racing. It takes at least an hour to wander through the museum looking at all the cars. I was surprised to find some antique racing cars in the museum. I only expected to see current race cars. Cars were well marked. A fun place to visit.

Despite being to Le Mans over 20 times we have never been in to the Museum until last weekend. Located next door to Main Circuit entrance admission is 8.50 euro per adult, give yourself at least 2 hours to get round, coffee shop and gift shop on site as well. Museum houses many exhibits from primarily the Le Mans 24... More

This is a "MUST SEE" if you come to Le Mans!...so much history...and some seriously stunning cars on display! Loved the shop here...but prepare to dig deep into those pockets and some items can be a bit pricey....saying that....the official Le Mans merchandise is excellent quality and worth that bit extra.

You don't have to be into auto racing to enjoy the Le Mans Museum. We visited when there were no racing activities and there were very few visitors. We were able to take our time as we wandered through the displays. The displays have descriptions in both French and English and tickets are inexpensive. The museum has displays of the... More

Not what it used be but still a great feeling of walking on roads that made history. Still too many restricted areas, a shame. Museum is worth a visit
