A month ago I had the opportunity to visit your museum and I was delighted. You really have a wonderful collection, kept in a very good condition.
But there is a downside. In the WW1 room, there is no mention at all of the British contribution to tank operations; you present the beginning of their history as Franco-French. You "forget" the Battle of Cambrai in November 1917, yet it changed the course of history. Such a chauvinistic, even arrogant attitude is not worthy of a museum in your class! A little more objectivity and humility would only add historical value to that already present in the exhibition.

Superb collection! A big congratulations to all those who work on the restoration of these machines.
Only negative point: visit prohibited to dogs while children take the site for a playground (the cries resonate well in these large halls), and are more harmful for visitors than a dog kept on a leash ....

We come quite often as a neighbor (Challans in Vendée), it is always with a real pleasure not only this magnificent collection but also for the kindness of the R (TM) reception. This year for the first time we followed the guided tour of the reserve: there is much to do! It would be interesting to publish from time to time, on your site, some information and images of the progress of these restoration works. I think we will be returning this year for October. Regards and thank you! Michael

I discovered a beautiful place. I would like to congratulate all the volunteers, employees for the maintenance of these giants of the history of yesterday and today.
All, my filiations to the young guide Adrien. Who made us discover with passion this exceptional site. Being president of the Amicale Gaulliste of the Bouches du Rhone, I was very touched to see the EBR armored vehicle that transported the remains of General De Gaulle to the cemetery of Colombey the two churches on 12 November 1970.
A big congratulations, to the whole team and especially THANKS, to maintain this history. That we must not forget.
It is with great pleasure that I have subscribed the membership fee, to join the ranks of this association which has much merit.
See you soon.

It will be the second time soon that I would have the opportunity to visit your museum.
being passionate about the history of the Second World War, especially the
On the east (Kursk, Stalingrad, karkov) I stood speechless in front of the tanks of the German hall, especially when I saw for the first time a panther, a koenigstiger, or a tiger. These parts are in a state redeemable despite their 70 spring. Congratulations to your museum and to those who care for these collection pieces.

For me, the Armored Museum is as important as the Louvre Museum. Being a big fan of armored vehicles, especially armored vehicles of the Second World War. And I am even more interested in German armored vehicles, very impressive, like the Panzerkampfwagen VI ausf.B Tiger II Armored Museum. The latter alone justifies the reason for such a museum: very rare armored, the Tiger II which are in working order today do not run the streets. The work of the mechanics of the Museum is remarkable, congratulations. As a great admirer of the World War II tanks, I wanted to emphasize the very careful restoration of panzer IV, provided with schürzen "thomas". I have visited 5 times the museum, and one of its strengths is to get rich with materials come from the quarters corners of the world. So, we never get tired :) I have 17 years and my first goes back to my 11 or 12 years, and I think that's where I come from this passion for Armor. A formidable museum, it presents armored vehicles of different nations and wars, ranging from the Scheinder CA1 tank to the T72 recovered in the former East Germany. Moreover, the reconstructions (carrousel) allow us to see these glorious fighter of different nations in motion, which I consider a homage. I wanted to congratulate all the people who helped make the museum work, and thank them for what they do and the happiness of seeing these steel titans rediscovering life. It is an extraordinary museum that must continue the work that it makes, we make dream ...

including the Merkava.

For the second time (but not the last one), I came to visit this superb Museum of the Armored in Saumur last October. Between the models displayed in the rooms, and those parked outside waiting for refurbishment, it is a real treat. This museum is well laid out, very informative, and very impressive. Congratulations to all these volunteers and enthusiasts who gradually restore the most unusual gear! Only a little regret, especially in the engine room: not being able to hear the noise, or even feel the vibrations that these steel monsters could release in action (apart from your annual day of dynamic presentation of certain armored vehicles). A big thank you for your collaboration, your commitment, and your passion to trace the history of military armored vehicles.
And that your museum will expand in the next few years! He's worth the pain !

I visited the Louvre when I had 7 years for the first time in the 70 years with my father who gave me the passion of history in general and more precisely of the 2nd world war that he had lived.
The organization, the discipline and the technical level of the Germans had always fascinated him and it was a mainstay of the panzer division, especially on the eastern front. I can still see him speaking to me for hours on the German strategy, the arrival of the new Panzers Modele V & VI, the technical difficulties of the first ones, the maintenance problems in this hostile universe, in addition to a very superior technology but also extremely difficult to control on the ground.
In short ... I remembered those 2 Panthers of the entrance of the Louvre, after passing the gate, I was fascinated by this mass (you imagine a blond head face 45 tons) that I had seen only 'occasionally on the TV in documentaries or movies ... but he did not remember at all and swears to me until his death otherwise.
I have just read to you, and you con fi rm me after nearly twelve years of doubt and solitude, that my childish eyes were not mistaken.
Thanks thanks thanks!!!
How many memories ... I have tears in his eyes ... he would have been so happy to be able to see them ... finally I will come this summer with my son Thibaud, 6ans, feru de panzer ... c ' is family ... MDR ... we will come to visit you on Monday 5 next, we will come from Connecticut, USA, where we live now.
Long journey, but in love, we do not count ...
Thank you to all the enthusiasts, to the volunteers and all the staff of the Musee in advance ...
Looking forward to seeing you and meeting you ...

I visited in June 2012 and did not sign this guest book how silly of me.
A very good museum and a lot more armour outside
waiting to be preserved. The Panther outside being restored got my attention, I wonder how progress is going with it.
Simply fantastic place to visit and you are in France and then it's a must see.
Very reasonable entrance fee, easy to find and only a small taxi fare from the train station of Saumar. I also left my wallet in the taxi and the driver was kind enough to return it, after laughing at my useless attempts at.

Great museum that I visited with passion which I praise in our model mall of the North: atmg59. This museum serves us as a reference for many armored vehicles are admiring the restoration work you do. Having done 2 times On Track in Folkestone where you are also recognized and appreciated. Then in our club we have a member of your area who only makes the armored that is understandable. Thank you for us: René59

Congratulations to all of you for this work of conservation and restoration of tanks and other military materials, the site is pleasant, but lacks a bit of update, for people living abroad it is difficult to go to Saumur to admire all the museum's treasures, it would be nice to communicate a little more of the novelties and noises of corridors on new arrivals of tanks and other projects of the museum and also on the restorations in progress ... thank you

J? R (TM) visited the museum the 16 / 08 / 2012.
Impressive is the only word that sums up the R (TM) place.
Having done my military service at Mourmelon in the 503 Rcc in 1982 j? R (TM) had the pleasure to find an AMX10 and an AMX30.
The amount of different tanks is surprising.
The explanations on the guided tour are clear.
What caught my attention, the R (TM) AMX50, the Tigre2, the Israeli tank Merkava and the Swedish tank.
My heart stroke, for the T34 / 85 and the T34 / 76.
Adept of the game "Red Orchestra 1 & 2" j? R (TM) could finally approach them in real.
My only regret: no Russian tank KV2.
For information, the inscription in Russian on the turret of the T34 / 76 tank in the room of the allies is "for the homeland", dixit Galina my wife of R (TM) Russian origin.
So a big kudos for the staff and for the museum.

I visited the Armored Museum for seven hours! For history lovers, it is a great journey in the past. Unfortunately, history is a succession of conflicts. In the rooms devoted to the two world wars, I thought of all those who died in these tanks ...
Thank you for preserving and restoring these witnesses of the past. Congratulations to the volunteers who are giving their time to refurbish them.
I dedicate my visit to the EAR and officers of the cavalry school, who have entered history under the name of Cadets de Saumur.
Thanks also for permission to take pictures.
