We visited on a early Monday afternoon. The Middlefield cheese factory is very large and I kind of expected the store and museum part to be a little bigger. The museum itself is rather uninteresting and unorganized. I love every type of museum really so it wasn't the information that bored me; it was how it was set up. There were signs everywhere indicating you could go downstairs and watch a video; however, when we went to go down the stairs it was roped off and said no admittance. They were not offering tours.
The store is very small and kind of unorganized as well. The line to check out was all over the place and nobody knew who was next. They had at least four people behind the check out counter but only one was working on the line while the rest stood around. They do have a different variety of food and candy and they have their cheese for sale at good prices. They also sell sub sandwiches.
So, all in all, it was just okay. I don't think it is as special as they try to make it to be in the local area. It seems VERY outdated and just more of a quickie or convenience store to pick up a snack. I would most definitely not travel a long distance to visit. Maybe we just visited during an off time.
