Musée du Vin, Paris

3.0
#72 of 129 in Museums in Paris
Translated simply as the wine museum, Musée du Vin is in former limestone quarries in the center of Paris. Explore three vaulted cellars on the property, which the Friars of Passy used in the 16th and 17th centuries to store their wine. These cellars now serve as the museum's restaurant, so you can enjoy a delicious meal accompanied by a glass of fine wine. You also can partake in wine tasting, fine cheese, and charcuterie. The exhibits feature more than 2,000 pieces covering the tools of viticulture, winemaking, and wine tasting. The oldest date back a century before Jesus Christ; the most recent is from the 19th century. Wax figures, including Napoleon, Pasteur, and Balzac, depict objects in the collection as well.

    A beautiful Museum on wine and liquor in general in an unusual setting in cellars. Otherwise a nice card, a small staff with clients, a good French cuisine (including the Joint Board). I recommend this address for those who want to get away from the Parisian life time of a meal or an afternoon.

    The museum is in a vaulted cellar and has great atmosphere. The English language guide was a hand held audio guide which was difficult to hear if other visitors were listening to a different part of t...  more »

    We visited the Musee du Vin as it was just around the corner from our hotel and we had limited time on our last day in Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed looking around and the staff were very friendly and ...  more »

    I went here when I was 20. My favorite part of the museum is not only the tasting but also how Napoleon used to sneak through an underground tunnel late at night when he couldn't sleep. He would have some wine to help him sleep.

    I struggle to give it two stars. There was no organization, not chronologically or numerically. It was very confusing. I paid attention the whole time and tried to learn but I can't say I left with any enlightening information. The one free wine tasting wasn't anything to write home about either.

    Just the ambiance and the nice location is one star worth, the rest is not my style (food, wine and coffee)

    We held a team-building meeting here, and the owners arranged for a small meeting space in the restaurant. After the meeting, we had a delicious meal followed by a wine-tasting challenge to see who could place the wines with their regions. This is a great place for small get-togethers, and the meal and wine were good.

    Just the right amount of museum, wine cave, intimacy and elegance.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
