Find here the content of the Newsletter N°1 of March 2022


This is the first issue of the Automobile Museums Newsletter. This month, I offer you a detailed tour guide of the Matra Museum, important by the size of the collection, but also by the uniqueness of most of the cars and objects presented. The article is intended to be complete, but nothing will be worth a visit to admire these wonders “live”.

Info on the website

Online since the end of January, the site has generally been well received by professionals, and its attendance is steadily increasing. At the beginning of April, a dozen new museums will be referenced, with 2 (among others) new countries present, Greece and the USA.

Do not hesitate to come back to see the news in a few days! Then, 2 important projects are on the program of the 2nd quarter, an English version to broaden the audience, and the integration of interactive maps to facilitate research and plan visits. And of course, new museums will be regularly referenced on the site.
