Cité de l'Automobile and Schlumpf collection

Highly recommended
This fabulous collection of 400 vintage cars, some of which are incredibly rare or unique, was assembled by Fritz Schlumpf - the story of which can be viewed here. The museum highlights over one hundred years of automobile history, from the "ancestors" (1895-1918) and "classic cars" (1918-38) to "modern" vehicles of the post-1945 period. A second section is devoted to racing cars and motoring masterpieces. A karting circuit (for children) and a simulator (for adults) add to the fun here.
