    Default Peugeot Museum France? Paris?

    Heading to Paris ( 1 week ) then campervan ( 2 weeks ) in october. Im keen to check out some sort of museum to do with french cars.

    What do people recommend and why?

    Personally I would like to see more of the race cars that the french have produced over the years. Namely the 205 t16 and 405 t16 etc but open to suggestions. While In Paris would be great!

    Cite de l'Automobile, the Schlumpf collection, in Mulhouse. Amazing collection! I spent a whole day there, and I'd go back and spend another in a heartbeat.

    Reims has also a little great car museum and has the left overs of a street circuit. Certainly worth a visit.

    Reims:

    Gueux circuit (right next to Reims, 10 minutes drive):

    Mulhouse certainly of course, if not for the largest private collection of bugattis, then also for having loads of other cars.

    (if you want pictures of that one, I can upload them)

    And of course the only peugeot museum at sochaux. A couple of years they have added a new wing.

    Another vote for the above. Plus, there's a neat little museum at Le Mans Raceway. A few very rare Grégoires there. Peugeot's museum in Sochaux is great. Citroën's Conservatoire (Just outside Paris) is worth seeing but only open to groups normally, and only open one or two days per fortnight.

    Have fun!

    The museum at Reims is very interesting and worth a visit. Many have properly commented on the one at Mulhouse.

    There are many car museums listed in a sticky thread in the Citroen forum I think.

    You could find these at the Peugeot museum in Sochaux, I had the pleasure of spending a day there and I am intending to repeat it God willing.

    Plus 1 for all of the above and if you happen to be into trains the French Railway Museum is also in Mulhouse.

    Do the Citroen C42 - Even if you hate Citroens, it's worth it for the building alone.

    Le Musée National de l'Automobile is not to be missed. It is FAR better than any other car museum, in fact you will walk out shell-shocked at how many fantastic cars are in there, kind of like the Louvre for art lovers.

    Sochaux is OK, and the cars are well presented, but it is small, and only about 33% of the collection can be shown. They never seem to have the cars I am most interested in (404s of various types) on display.

    I'd add Loheac, in Normandy. A bit out of the way perhaps (a few hours west of Paris) but really good, with a diverse range of cars including a large number of different Alpines, a couple of the rare special body 4CV Renaults and various Citroen and Peugeot cars. Also quite a range of other things including a couple of Tatras (a personal favourite).

    The museum in Rheims is excellent, being the Charbonneaux collection. He re-did the R8 styling in two weeks flat with a team of panel formers and a pile of aluminium sheets after "sales" rejected "styles" design for the Dauphine-replacement and came up with the single pressing design for the side of the R16, apart from much more.

    Have a great time.
