  • We benefited from a visit with Mr Opinel for guide accompanying a group. It was very enjoyable, interesting, sometimes with comical detail. Free access. Thank you.

  • Museum is well done - step by step of the history and production of Opinel knifes. I will forever look at my knifes differently. Museum is free too

  • Great museum and shop - if you are after a knife.
  • An excellent museum. Small but lots of detail on all aspects of the history and production of these iconic pocket knives. Nice display of early 20th century machinery, and lots of opportunities for reading French! Excellent value, free, and the full range of knives on sale in shop.
  • Fun (free) museum! History and insight into the production. And as icing on the cake the opinel museum shop with all the products out there. Of Pocket knives for kids to saw and everything in between!

  • A very interesting Museum to the mythical savoyard knife that is even exposed to the famous Museum of Modern Art in New York and that the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has selected to be among the 100 most beautiful objects of the world. Must-have!

  • Museum exhibits not so very much for, but in the shop you can all models of Opinel buy for a reasonable price. If only because of the store is a visit definitely worthwhile.
