Musée Maurice Dufresne

A unique museum in Azay-le-Rideau

A real treasure trove covering retro mechanics from the last half of the 19th century up to 1950, this museum will leave you spellbound. Travel back in time on a 3-hour visit, where you can admire a collection of bikes, cars, trucks, planes, tractors, motorbikes, agricultural machines and military machines. 

In short, anything that uses a motor, generally speaking, to work. Lovers of vintage vehicles will leave the museum with a sense of nostalgia and misty eyes, with 3000 items in the collection to discover or rediscover, some of which are unique models! Vintage posters and interesting objects are also shown.
The museum is located in the old Moulin de Marnay paper mill in Azay-le-Rideau, just 30 minutes from the hotel and Tours.
