  • This museum/display was very nicely done. The tractors are the big star here, which many different brands from many different years. Worth a few minutes of your time.  more »
  • If you are in Chartres and don't have much time to sight-see this museum of agriculture is very close to the station and well worth a visit. Lovely building, interesting machinery and great photos.  more »

  • Very noisy place especially when there are children. The home attendants are not very respectful of other visitors, screaming about the kids does not give a good picture of the place. The video room is not soundproof impossible to follow the comments seen the surrounding hubbub.

  • No parking possible, so I advise you to go there by public transport, otherwise soon the Compa will no longer then enjoy the last visits possible before its definitive closure. It is unfortunate, saying that a few decades ago the trains were turning around. It's a story page that's going to be turned.
