Moret is a lovely little town and this musuem is well worth a visit if your are meandering the streets. It's only small but is housed in a fine old house and relates its story in a simple but interesting way.
More to the point, the barley sugar is quite simply DELICIOUS!!! The best I have ever tasted (and I have tried a few....)

Little museum, with history of the recipe, there is also a movie about the process of making the barley sugar. The building is charming and situated on the old, picturesque bridge. The entrance has fee (1 or 2 euros), it's open till 18 during weekends. Half an hour is more than enough to see it. Nearby worthy to walk along the bridge, to see the old town from further (Sisley point on the grass along the river), and watermills on the river.

You cannot go to Moret-sur-Loing without trying France's oldest candy! It dates back to 1638. By today's standards nothing extraordinary in terms of flavors but it's all natural... and they come in pretty little boxes!

First of all you will love the location of this small museum. The building is over the Loing river. The only way to get to it is through a bridge. The building itself looks like a fairy tale house. The museum is small but represents well the origins and history of the Moret Nuns sweets production that started in 16th century and ended in the 1970s. Vatican II ordered them to stop any commercial activities and one of the Sisters shared the secret recipe with a local sweets maker who then used it to continue the production. Even today the recipe is a secret, remains within the family of the same person and the sweets are made by hand. Very cute. Do visit the original building which housed the museum until a year ago, just beside the church. The shop is still there and you can get some Moret Sisters sweets.

I am not quite fond of sweets, especially those which taste like sore throat drops. This shop is still worth a visit thanks to its medieval ambiance and artisanal products you can find inside. Summary: Did not like the orange flavoured sweet candy, but its box.

Located in its new home - less than a year - in the middle of the Loing river, this museum celebrating the history of the local barley sugar is very good.

Taste the barley sugar, read the history, and see a unique view of the town where Alfred Sisley painted in the style of the impressionist school.

A very good small and inexpensive museum.

This tiny museum devoted to the story of the town's secret recipe barley sugar is a delight. At only €2 for entry it holds a lot of interest. It's worth it to visit the unique building in which the exhibition is housed.
