Automobile Museum Mahymobiles
Ghislain Mahy’s collection has two very unusual aspects. The collection is privately owned but, in March 1978, the Mahy family created a charitable foundation in order to prevent dispersion or compulsory sale following the death of a family member.
The second is the collection’s theme. It is probably unique worldwide in containing at least one example of every important aspect of automobile development. The Mahy collection is one of the largest in the world and includes more than nine hundred and fifty cars, sixty motorcycles, a collection of bicycles, children’s cars, some horse-drawn carriages and sleighs.
Mahymobiles shows automotive history from it’s humble beginnings at the end of the 19th century to the present day.
Mahymobiles has only one ambition: to share with everyone the passion for cars that drives the Mahy family.
At present, the museum offers visitors a 2.5 hour tour over an area of 6,000 m2 (6 rooms) with more than 300 vehicles on display.
