“Satisfied a Tank mad son...”
Review of Musee des Blindes

Musee des Blindes
Ranked #3 of 45 things to do in Saumur
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 August 2017

Took my son who is an avid World of Tanks player, and a frequent visitor to Bovington in the UK, to the Musee des Blindes in Saumur. Yes it can seem pricey, though these tanks are expensive - though the extra to take photos was a but strange..

Son thoroughly enjoyed it, as there are some rare tanks here.

The 'models' that they had placed around the place did not really add to the tanks.
Information was available in English on each tank.... if passing through France, and like the tanks, this is worth a stop, though Bovington in the UK certainly has a better collection.

We were I Saumur and decided to visit this museum. I have never seen so many different types of tanks. Ranging from ww1 up to present day. Could have been nice with some explanation of the basic functions of the different types of weapons and defence as well as some in on development of ammunition for the canons.
It is a huge display so if you have any interest in this I highly recommend to see this museum.

This is a vast place - full of tanks, both inside and out. The displays are well laid out in sensible groupings and there is lots of information about each exhibit and the majority of information is also in English.
I was there with my 21 year old son and his friend. I was amazed that they were both engrossed and really enjoyed the visit of over 2 hours. They behaved like kids (so did I) when we were able to clamber about a number of tanks.
There are also loads of tanks outside in various states of condition / renovation.
It was a great a very interesting visit - especially if you like tanks!
Only downside is that you have to pay €5for a permit to take photos - but I saw many using their phones without a permit!!!

Well worth a visit. Over 200 vehicles on display. Free to wander and explore the development of tanks and other military vehicles. Good gift shop with a huge range of model kits.

It is about 5 euros per kid and 10 euros per adult for this trip, however on top of this if you wanted to take pictures it was another 5 euros each which is a bit of a ripoff! However the tanks inside are worth it they really are extraordinary! i would say that this is great value for people interested in tanks or army equipment if not it could get a bit boring.
