Here you can find a large selection of French cheeses, neatly arranged and displayed, and... yes, you can even buy some, it is not a museum even if you will be forgiven for thinking so...
These cheeses are precious little gems (priced accordingly), this is not a place to stock up, but rather to explore, and then pick and bring home some unusual varieties to taste (with the risk of becoming addicted to... you have been warned). I am a cheese lover (and very experienced...), I did buy a few pieces and enjoyed them greatly at home, I can ensure you they were of the highest quality.
Of course, as pointed out by some, in some cases you may be able to find the same cheese somewhere else at better prices, but it is normal to pay more for the convenience of having a wide selection of products available at a single place.
Two pieces of practical advice: first, the small shop can be crowded and confusing, do not expect the personnel to notice you - they are not being rude, this is France, just look around yourself and understand when is your opportunitiy to step up and ask for help, they are helpful and knowledgeable.
Second, you can ask for your products to be vacuum packed, it is very convenient for carrying them with you, and will prevent the smell to spread to unwanted parts of your baggage. The package can be carried on a plane in your checked baggage, but beware: most soft cheeses are classified as "liquids" by airport security, and will accordingly be removed from you if you try to carry them in your cabin luggage (unless they are really small pieces). I am still grieving a nice piece of brie... don't make my mistake.
