    Great museum in which the different aspects of viticulture. From the planting of the vines on the harvest, the wine process and storage. Very interesting was the movie from 1942 on how when wine barrels. Then art and craft.

    This is a well laid out museum taking you all the way through the wine-making process. My only criticism is that a lot of the information was only in French.  more »

    If you are genuinely interested in wine, the museum is a must-see while in Beaune. You can see the different types of historical wooden presses outside for free (very impressive and very labour-intensive!). The museum has many rooms, each devoted to a different theme - ancient times, terroir & climats of Bourgogne, cooperage, harvest time (old equipment), a Nez du Vin room, the Hospices de Beaune actions and wine-related art. The only difficulty with the museum for non-French speakers is that most of the descriptions throughout the museum are only in French (with a few in English also). The online reviews were not promising but we decided to go anyway. Well worth the visit!

    Kind of touristy/gimmicky. You won't find the region's best wines here.

    Could not be more informative and very well detailed and explicit. Do not forget the old winepress outside the Museum in an outdoor barn

    The Museum is very informative to start to discover the richness and complexity of the wines of Burgundy. Nice set and staging educational and informative without being too complex. The framework itself is unique in the great hotel Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy.
