vu sympa sur la saone, grand , dans un chateau joli, belle visite et interressante, parking suffisant more »seen nice on the saone, large, in a pretty castle, beautiful visit and interesting, sufficient parking
A really beautiful museum with a big and unique collection of ancient cars and motos. Which is more it's located in a castle so you can enjoy rarity in a proper ambiance. It's a bit far away from Lyon but you can easily get there by bus (you will have to walk for about 10-15 min). There's a huge parking if you go by car. Nowhere to buy food, not even a cafe so you might want to take a picnic or at least some water.
Had a wonderful time at the museum. Was a great collection of automobiles and bikes.
