Musée des Citroën – Citromuseum is a car museum in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regionFrance.

The private museum is devoted exclusively to post-war Citroëns in exceptional original condition and with low mileage.

It is the result of 40 years of passion, dedicated to finding these vehicles across Europe, maintaining them and keeping them running smoothly.

The 2,500 m² room specially designed for this museum is made up of three sections essentially representing: 2CV and derivatives, DS and traction, Youngtimers.

The most remarkable car is the oldest commercial DS known to date, the №32, presented rotating in its basket, as on the first day of the Paris Motor Show, on 6 October 1955.

The 120 Citroëns are in near factory condition, most of them in original paint. The average mileage is around 20,000 kilometres. Each vehicle is displayed with its card showing the model and history: the reason for the low mileage, the storage conditions and the circumstances of their acquisition. Documents concerning the vehicle are attached.
