Musee Henri Malartre reviews
Certainly off the beaten track and easiest accessed by car, it is absolutely worth the trouble. It must be one of the best collections of antique cars, motorcycles, bicycles and public transportation.... more »
Absolutely amazed by this museum.Was taken here by my father in law and my other half for an afternoon and the place is fantastic.Got to see amazing vintage cars and motorcycles in a huge period... more »
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.
