My wife and I spent a week in Cognac - and what a week! We visited four cognac houses and learned a lot. But before we went on the first such tour, we visited this museum and it was time incedibly well spent. I highly recommend a visit to this musuem before going on any specific cognac house tour because... More

The museum is situated near the quai along the river. You can have headphones if you like for translation. Interesting to see how cognac was made through time and its process and how local people lived

Stumbled across this whilst following the cognac walking tour....small museum, very good, staff friendly and tour has English headphone translation that kicks in at the exhibits....very useful! Great overview of the history, manufacture and promotion of cognac....lots of child friendly stations....great to do before a visit to the cognac cellars

A small fee to enter, wander about through this well appointed petite museum . There are many first rate pieces, some very good second rate paintings and a great deal,of history to view. A compliment to the brandy tours. Go first or last but go if you can

It has a small but interesting collection of artifacts and paintings though none of them are top notch. Staff are friendly and approachable. Excellent views over the park from the upstairs windows. Worth a visit on a rainy afternoon. It is in fact only open in the afternoon; the standard entrance fee on the day we went was 5€.

This is a fantastic museum and complements any brandy tour you may wish to go on. If you go here first of all you will learn all about the brandy making process. There are headsets that translate any videos you may see as soon as you walk in close proximity to them. The museum is very well laid out although... More

Helpful and knowledgeable staff helped a short trip around a well laid out museum which covered all periods and ages, and plenty to keep kids happy also. Very near to the back of the market so no excuse to go !

This was a very pleasant building with ancient bits and pieces in display cabinets on the ground floor, but when you go upstairs there is a delightful collection of paintings from the 16th century to the 20th century. Certainly worthwhile.

Thank Jenny M
