Visited here while in Clermont and found the museum to have very interesting history of bicycle and motor transport. That the writing for all exhibits was in English was really a help and made it really enjoyable.

We were a little disappointed. The museum has a good number of interesting things to see but I think we're just not that fascinated by tyres! We felt there was so much more that could be done to make the museum more exciting and interactive!...More

Worth doing if you have some spare time. I'm not big on museums but Michelin is fundamental to the city. Need to be interested in either the company or tyres/transport.

If you happen to be in Clermont and didn't visit the Michelin, you would have missed something for sure! This place around must be visited once to understand the lifeline of the city.

What else does one do in Clermont-Ferrand? The museum is large and traces the Michelin family and efforts all the way back to tires for bicycles. There is adequate time spent on the expansive history of Michelin including how the famous signs were developed as...More
