Saumur
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I don't think the two Lecrerc tanks on show belong to the Museum, but I can't be sure:

Carrousel de Saumur is not just AFVs, the show includes plenty of cavalry, paratroopers and a few more. The AFV part lasted around 45mm. Both me and my wife enjoyed it.
I just wish there were more old tanks, I was hoping to see the Kingtiger, an FT-17 and maybe some WW II vintage french AFVs.

If you plan to visit the Museum scheduling your visit around the Carrousel could make sense. But you also have to consider that in those days there are more visitors than average, making it harder to take pictures inside the Museum.
