A truly unique collection with over 200 cycles Sep 13, 2010
Michel Grezaud,a former Tournus butcher had collected and repaired for 50 years bicycles and many various items on the theme of the cycle.After the closing of his Cormatin museum 3 years ago(the town did not provide sufficient support),he was happy to inaugurate a new place for his "kids"on the last 19th June thanks to the Tournus Town Council support and a friendly local association.But he did not live to see the day.He died at the beginning of May.

However his collection is living in 3 rooms of more than 600 sqm of the former Tournus féculerie(starch manufacture)with over 200 models retracing the history of the cycle from its invention in 1818 as a "velocipede" to the first bicycle with a chain drive in 1880.

One can see seaters wheelers,tandem,delivery,milkman and military foldable bicycles.Also are displayed posters,plates,photographs of Tour de France,placards and other curios.

entry fee:5 euro,free under 10

opening hours:2pm to 6pm evryday except Mondays,access for disabled
