Take enough time for visit

It's a fairly large building, divided according to the individual sections. It is very nicely furnished and interactively. We came less than 60 minutes before closing time, because we had no idea how big the museum is. The lady at the ticket office told us that this time is ENOUGH to browse through the museum. However, if you read all... More

The little shop downstairs has some really lovely gifts and kitchen ware for sale. The place is light and airy and its great if you have guests visiting as a local attraction

If you have time on your hands and want to be more informed about food, this is a good place to go. Quite varied in the type of exhibits, it has something for people of all ages. Some machines give out chocolates for you to taste :)

If you know anything at all about food, you will learn absolutely nothing at this museum. It is really just an advertisement for Nestlé (which is headquartered nearby). And not even a very good advertisement (Nestlé really should be ashamed - this is not a positive promotion of their brand). We love food and love to cook. And love Vevey... More

We have visited this museum several times. Our children when younger enjoyed the interactive exhibits. These days we enjoy the various displays and the exhibitions which change every few months but we also have a go on some of the interactive exhibits ourselves. The museum has its own restaurant and as one enters through the kitchen garden one can see... More

Unless you're working on your thesis on food, you might find this a little dull. We took the audio guide, but stopped listening to it after 15 minutes. It had some interesting information, but it was too boring to have to listen to all of it to glean the interesting info. I enjoyed looking at the cooking utensils and pots/pans... More

I got the feeling that Food is just an excuse to advertise Nestlé company. It was raining and we where with a couple of friends with a son who's 1 year old. As it was lunch time for the baby, we went to the restaurant (self service) of the museum to get 4 drinks and sit on a table to... More

There is lots to do. The exhibits are interactive and educational. Four floors of food history and food processing and nutritional education. The gardens outside are amazing. They had artichokes that had gone to bloom.
