“Took out of towners for a show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Got to see the history of the area, photos of back when, and the volunteer was very fun and made the experience interactive and wonderful. Then we went to see cheese actually being made!

“Rushed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

You walk in and greeted with friendly staff. The tour is rushed - I guess because another group came in behind us. They play a recorded tour and out the door you go. No chance to linger and look at the items.

“A must stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Fantastic, full of interesting cheese history, cheese tools, old artifacts. A very friendly staff greet you as you enter and are helpful in every way.
There is an old caboose on the grounds that you can walk through as well as an old cheese factory transported from northern Illinois.
What a marvelous treasure in Monroe. All cheese lovers should go for a visit.
