Chez Manuel - Museum of Popular Art
A very different kind of museum ... housing old cars, toys, tractors, military equipment, gramophones, dolls, and ornaments. Nostalgic memorabilia including old advertisements, one of the very first Michaux bicycles, a Thai rickshaw, a 1947 Plymouth car, a 1924 fire-engine, a Merlin steam machine, a Sikorsky helicopter, a percolator, a Ford Model T, and a whole lot more. It all started approximately 50 years ago. One day, while exploring France, Manuel Ribeiro, founder of the museum and passionate traveller received a cart lamp from a farmer and from then on was bitten by the collector's bug. Open since 1977, the museum exposes all Manuel's finds on a 2000m2 exposition area.
Opening times: every day 9 AM to 6:30 PM
