This is basically a local history museum, extended to cover all aspects of wine-making, from the agricultural tools used in planting, through the skills of harvesting, fermentation, cooperage, even labelling, with rooms devoted to particular skills. It is an interesting series of rooms, though scarcely exciting, and though much is self-explanatory, the labelling could be better (and it could be... More

This is mostly a museum of wine in Burgundy, although it covers general winemaking and the accoutrements of wine as well. Spaced out over several rooms on two levels, and outside, in a historic building. It’s a bit hidden away but just a two minutes walk from the Hospice and centre of Beaune. I think you need to be interested... More

Not really a destination on its own, but if you have a combo ticket with other Beaune attractions, it is worth a little time. If you know a little about wine making, there isn't really anything new to learn here, but there are some interesting items on display that are fun to see.

Fortunately there were some handouts in English. It seemed more like a museum on 19th century traditional life in Burgundy not just a history of wine and wine making. It reminded me of efforts in the US to recreate pioneer villages like New Salem in Illinois. If you are like me a read every sign ina museum you will like... More

I have been the similar musee in Bordeaux and this was not up to the same standard. All the information was in French and it did not cater for foreign tourists. Some of the displays were very basic. To be honest - give this musee a miss

A well designed museum of the history of wine making. It can be seen in an hour unless you want to read a lot of the details. Enjoyed seeing the old photos. Well worth the visit. Get the multi museum pass, which can be purchased at any of the museums.

Coming from the CA Sonoma wine country, not much new to learn but always interesting and gorgeous old building.

Apart from the black and white film of barrel making, its just a display of fairly sterile explanatory boards about the Burgundy vineyards and display cabinets of dusty implements. It could do with a good shake to bring it in to the 21st century where visitors expect to feel or smell something or even better see some form of live... More

OK as long as you can read French as not available in English. Unfortunately I have been lazy and not learnt enough French to totally appreciate the information available but was able to piece together the history via the pictures and artefacts on display. Quite expensive though for what was on offer.

Really good galleries themed around the different aspects of wine production. The film of barrel making is worth the time, in French, the Cooper is manoeuvring 200 Kilo barrels on his own.
