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.

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.

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.

While family enjoyed the museum, especially the video about barrel making. Lots of artefacts about Beaune history of wine making. Could have had mor info in English though.

Packed with information in a traditional museum style. We went with a teenager whose interest was moderate and it is true that for younger visitors who are not fans of museums, this is not ideal; For the rest of us, though, this is a place where the volume of information requires multiple visits.

We had a few hours unplanned in Beaune and so visited this wine museum. Only some of the commentaries in are English, but the museum is still worthwhile and educational.
