Abstract The accurate knowledge of the $\bar\nu_e (\nu_\mu)$ beam produced in $\mu^-$ decays and the absence of $\nu_e (\bar\nu_\mu)$ contamination, make a future muon storage ring the ideal place to look for $\numunue$ ($\numubarnuebar$) oscillations. Using a detector capable of electron and muon identification with charge discrimination (e.g., the presently running NOMAD experiment), good sensitivities to $\numunue (\numubarnuebar)$ oscillations could be achieved. With the CERN-PS as a proton driver for a muon storage ring of the kind envisaged for a $\mu$-collider, the LSND claim would be confirmed or disproved in a few years of running.
