This is an outstanding collection of armoured vehicles in one location, most of which are restored and in running order. The collection of German vehicles of the WW2 era is unique , similar to Bovington in UK but with a different perspective,

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 !
For anybody interested in the two World Wars this is a must. The museum has an incredible selection of vehicles, tanks, machines and artefacts. Don't be put off by it's location as it's a little bit out of the town centre there's plenty of parking...More
If you are not interested in WW1 history then you will enjoy this museum. However I am and virtually no mention of English Contribution to development of tanks in this era.

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.
Good selection of German, French and US tanks. Plenty of space in museum. Some amusing labelling - non French tanks have their flaws highlighted, French tanks inspired many other tanks. Its not as big a selection as Bovington, but its definitely worth a visit if...More
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

Hi, I visited the tank museum in Saumer last week and travelled via train from Paris (albeit Charles De Gaulle airport.) I got the TGV from the airport to Angers but the Tours route you mention is similar but brings you into Saumur from the other direction. I found the trains very reliable, clean and ok time. The TGV itself is a real experience too if you like trains and a bit more relaxing than driving.
From Saumer railway station it's 10-15 minute walk into the town to get a bus (no 34 stops about 100 yards from the entrance) or jump in a taxi right outside the station.
Not sure how well you speak French but all the trains and the buses I went on have screens (as well as voice announcements) showing the next stop so you don't have to rely on someone reminding you where to get off or listen all the time.
Hope that's some help and hope you enjoy your trip.
