The location is cool, in limestone tunnels. The actual museum has some interesting displays, but seems a little dated. It's a nice touch to get a glass of wine after the museum visit, but the wine was nothing special.

We were recommended this attraction by friends and would rate it (1) Best for wine appreciation (2) Lunch and (3) the Museum. Wine tasting is only 20 mins and is done "privately" in that you don't need to join a big group - my husband and I were given our own tasting, selecting mix of wines that we wanted to try and the sommelier sat down with us to explain how to taste wines and regions they came from. Excellent value. I will disagree with other reviewers in that the confit Lamb was the Best Dish on the menu followed by the Foie Gras starter. Having dined at Jules Verne and other top class restaurants in Paris these two dishes were a stand-out and would not be out of place in a top establishment. I had the recommended veal stew and stirred egg starter which were OK but not a "best ever". Stew was very rustic/basic but the veal was extremely tender. Great place for a fun group lunch. The museum is OK, but really a collection of wine related utensils and tools. As part of the whole lunch and wine tasting the museum was just part of the experience and worth doing all of it.

My husband and I travel to Paris frequently and, since we've already seen the main tourist attractions, spend most of our time just walking and/or checking out the more offbeat sights. This is one such sight. The museum is old and kitschy, but has its own charm. The glass of wine at the end is fun too. It's also in the 16th, which is a somewhat untouristed area that is fun to explore for a few hours.

This is NOT a place to put on your list of top Paris must sees; rather, it's a fun place to stroll to and stroll around for return visitors who have done the Paris tourist circuit and are looking for something a little offbeat.

The tour of the Museum was interesting, but the wine and meal after was truly wonderful. The two Museum Guides were very knowledgeable and paired our meals with the correct wine choices. We were fortunate to have taken the time to include the meal with our tour as it ranks with some of the best meals we have shared while in France.

We wanted to go to Les Caves Du Louvre, but the Uber took us here instead. For a tourist attraction you would expect a basic understanding of English. When we finally confirmed and showed her the tour we were after, we were given one hand held audio device for us both to share. However as these weren't earphones, we struggled to hear the audio, without turning it up more to disturb the other visitors. We struggled to work out if we were to stop at each cabinet whilst this device spoke, as the items were not numerological. We gave up and went to look for our free wine. All the staff seemed confused, eventually we were rudely sat down, waited another 20 minutes for a disgusting glass of red to be given. We left the wine. For an experience worthy of your time go to Les Caves Du Louvre

Being major wine enthusiasts, my husband and I had high hopes for the Musée du Vin. Sadly, we were unimpressed. It was basically a collection of wine related relics, accompanied by lame wax figures and an audio that was difficult to follow. The tiny glass of wine at the end was horrible, too. With all the amazing things there are to see and do in Paris - and so many of them free - don't waste your time or money.

Hello Karen, Thanks for sharing about your experience. We are so sorry you were disappointed with it. Our permanent collections include more than 2000 artefacts, and we are surprised that you didn't find something interesting for you. For our testing we propose the large choice of high quality wine. But everybody has own taste preferences, and if you don’t like your wine you can say it to our sommelier and he find for you another one in accordance with your expectations We will be happy to welcome you again and we hope you'll give us a second go for making a good first impression! Wine Museum Team

I had lunch at this museum with a friend and was underwhelmed by the service and after lunch tour. The food and wine was fine and the ambiance was that of eating in a wine cellar. The tour however, was very hokey. I'm so glad we did not have to pay the entrance fee, as that is waived if you eat lunch there.

Nice idea, but poorly executed.

My husband and I were so excited to do the cheese and wine tour at Musee du Vin...when we arrived we were asked to tour the museum on our own with a little device that explained the artefacts, however this was not very effective as it could not be timed to they way you walk….
Then we came back to a little alcove where they had prepared 3 wines and 3 cheeses - the lady explained what wines they were but did not provide any information on what wine goes with what cheese... which was the part I was looking forward.
They had a conference on at the same time and it left us feeling as though were we 'put aside' and forgotten as no one came back to check on us, so we just left feeling disappointed.

Although the exhibit itself is interesting, the real star of this attraction is their wine tasting. We were presented with 3 different wines to compare and contrast, all three wonderful! Much better than you'd get at a random cafe or bistro. For an additional $10/person, they'll have a wine master walk you through your tasting as well. He wasn't available for the time we were there, but we still got a great explanation from our server. Always something new to learn!

I have been to Paris many times and never made it to this little gem. We learned so much and had a great wine tasting. The area around it is outstanding, of course its one of the most expensive areas.
