Henri Malartre Auto Museum

645 Rue du Musée
69270 Rochetaillée-sur-Saône,


Set in a magnificent French chateau, the museum displays one hundred motor cars and sixty motorcycles made between the turn of the 20th century and the 1960s.

The majority of vehicles are in working order and some appear in rallies, salons and in exhibitons at other museums.

Three known examples of Givaudan exist. One is at Musée château de savigny les beaune, and another is in the Chapleur collection near Luneville in NE France. Musée Henri Malartre, Rochetaillée-sur-Saône has the other.

The automobile collection also has some remarkable exhibits, among them the Mercedes-Benz of Adolf Hitler and, at the other end of the spectrum, a Renault which transported Pope John Paul II.
