I must admit that I was expecting a bit more from this museum. There doesn't seem to be any logical to some of the exhibits on display other that the vehicle once drove past Le Mans or the manufacturer bought a hammer from a hardware store on their way through Le Mans in 1904. It's hard to figure out what relevance some cars have to the race. Even after reading the (out of date by a few years and poorly translated) €2 guide book I'm still at a loss as to why a lawn mower was on display.
There is no mention of Mercedes Benz or the terrible accident of 1955 which is disappointing this was a significant event in the history of the race and needs to be documented. It’s akin to the death of Ayrton Senna being written out of the history of F1!
The race cars are too tightly packed together meaning it’s difficult to get a clear view or photo and some of the cars are not even the actual car they are representing (Porsche 917L springs to mind....). And again these cars are in no logical order. Also there is no mention of or photos of the famous trophy presented to the overall winner!
The gift shop is full of high priced Aston Martin, Porsche, Steve McQueen and Le Mans 24 Hour clothing and models. Don't expect to find a cheap as chips toy car or even a colouring book for the kids. You can buy a bus ticket at the shop that takes you around the Circuit Bugatti for €8 each or you can get in your car, pick up the Mulsanne straight at Tetra Rouge (scene of Allan Simomsen's crash) drive the full length to the Mulsanne hairpin, then drive down to Indianapolis, around Arnage and as far as the Porsche Curve for free.
It's the sort of museum that you won't bother visiting again once you have been there.
