doesn't take long to go round but very interesting especially the "hall of fame" bit. Some of the English translations of the exhibit descriptions are very funny

I visited this museum with my US husband and he enjoyed every minute of it. The exposition is well done - not only the real cars, but also the 'dinky-toys' set up of all participating cars during the racing years and the winners.

Is there a bus from the train station that gets closer to the museum than the tram? I understand there is a 2-mile walk to the museum from the closest tram stop, is that possibly correct? Also I saw that for an additional €3.50 there is a tour of a portion of the track? I can't find a site though that tells me more about that. We are making a special 1-day stop in Le Mans so my husband can see the museum. Thanks.

It's not possible to traverse to the site by car. You can make the guided tour every Saturday at 3:00 pm from a guide by feet except during the sports events on the circuit.
