We ended up at this museum by hazard, not supposed to visit Sancerre. This museum was a highly positive surprise. Set up in this tiny village of Sancerre, the explications on the wine (origins, process, history) are well described and very well supported by a talk on the area with 3D maquette, 4D movie (don't miss it, you'll be surprised!)...

The local museum dedicated to the Sancerre wine has been well modernised and now has a 4D experience. There are English translations on most of the displays.

A great experience and well worth the time and modest fee. At the end of the tour/experience you will receive a complimentary glass of wine which you can take on the porch overlooking the lovely countryside.

There's a ton of information here on the history of wine production in the region, the phylloxera disease, the kinds of wine and the method of production and so on. It's well presented - a few static boards but enough movie-style bits thrown in. As other reviews have mentioned, there are some rather gimmicky bits - a "grape-eye's" view of... More

Well worth the visit if only to have experienced the surprises offered by the 4D film.....brilliant fun. However Sancerre wine comes in both red and rose versions and so it was a disappointment to only have the opportunity for a "degustation" of a white wine ...good though it was. The gift shop is well stocked and attentively managed by multilingual... More

Not only can you get information on vineyards that are open and where they are, but there's also an exhibition on the making of the wine, the history, etc., etc. - all the information you'd ever need. There's the 4D movie, everyone mentions, the 4th dimension is being blown on, rained on, feeling that a snake is slithering over your... More

A small and fun museum with lots of information about the history and making of wine in France. The displays are in both French and English.

If you are in the village - this is a must see. It walks through the history in quite an interesting way. It also has several videos of the winemakers recounting the history - I was happy to see someone I had met a local bar the night before in the video - Sancerre is a very small town. The... More

For adults alone it is OK - average value for money. However, children go free and they will really enjoy the 4D film. There should also be a vine machine simulator, but it was broken when we visited. For adults, there is a tasting (one very small glass of Sancerre), but it is not worth visiting if you are hoping...
