Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Europe, France

After moving to Le Mans, Amédée Bollée built the first “modern” car in 1873. The success of the “Obéissante” was universal and sealed the destiny of Sarthe and Le Mans. From 1923 onwards, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Le Mans became a place that was synonymous with cars. The Automobile Club Ouest, the department and local collectors therefore created the car museum in 1961. At first located within the circuit, near the village, it had various updates over the years and moved in 1991 near to the main entrance to the circuit.

The car has revolutionised our society for more than a century and to preserve this evolution, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest created the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum, a setting for the great adventure in road mobility.
