The 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum, managed by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, is located on the site of this mythical race. It naturally traces the epic of the automobile in the Sarthe and the history of one of the most famous and ancient car races. The ACO, the department and local collectors created an Automobile Museum in 1961.

Initially located within the circuit, near the village, it underwent many developments over the years, and moved in 1991 near the main entrance of the Circuit.
