I'm a bit of a DS and 2CV geek and find myself in Castellane for a few days every year on the annual Cote d'Azur road trip. Really interesting collection. My wife has strangely never joined me on my visits here though.

Well worth a visit... the owner Henri is passionate and articulate - with a wealth of information and fascinating back stories to the cars. It's not necessary to be a Motorhead to enjoy this museum.

It is a really fine collection of Citroen Cars from WW II to mid 1980's. The focus is on cars in fully origical shape which is really impressive. All cars are presented in French and English with full history.

Clearly a life's work dedicated to the Citroen marque. Excellent descriptions and interesting histories of the acquisitions of each vehicle. Easy to spend a couple of hours here. Note the opening hours of 2 to 6pm to avoid disappointment.

Private collection of Citroen cars, different models, most of them in good working condition. I front of each there is an explanation on the model, the actual KM (as low as 41..) and its history.
