Better than the UK's Bovington museum I'd say. Fantastic range of armour from WW1 through to late 20thC. Don't miss King Tiger and German tank destroyers, and cute Vespa Scooter anti tank bazooka thing !

Quite simply the best armored vehicle museum I have ever visited. Many rare or one of a kind examples of AFVs, especially German WW2. If you are anywhere close to Saumur, it is certainly worth a visit.

If you are interested in tanks, this is an amazing collection, and features a very deep collection of French tanks, many of which I had never seen before. It has had less investment than Bovington, so there is little more than basic info on each...More
