  • Disappointed it s expected to discover lots of small plantations of mushrooms, there are few but too many mushrooms behind the windows.

  • The place is authentic, visit only underground. The top is the mushroom at the end of the tunnels. Otherwise he must really be curious to appreciate all the descriptions on the mushrooms. I find it a bit expensive if you have to pay for a family. The person has the staff is lovely. To do it once in his life.

  • Interesting to stroll through the underground to discover species of mushrooms, but that is not the €9 entrance or with a guided tour which could more to justify it... the decorations are also becoming antiquated. the children went home with a small culture of fungus to grow, which delighted them... Improvements to do to make it really worth

  • This awesome museum has a cave of awesome live mushroom cultures and an extensive species collection with information (in french and english). Near the reception there is a café specializing in foods made of mushrooms (surprise), which probably taste way better than what you're imagining right now. The stew is amazing, and the beer (mushroom of course) is some of the best I've had. Seriously! This place is well worth the price.
  • Mushrooms in a cave. What's not to like. Well it may be a bit tacky but once you get to the real thing - live mushroom growing - it's ace! Also they've got mushroom beer. These are some fun guys (get it...)
  • Interesting and off beat museum that would be great for kids. They sell a host of local mushroom theme products in the gift store. The signs are in French, but there is a free guidebook in English.
  • Interesting look into how mushrooms are produced. I think the Shiimake beer in the gift shop was the highlight of the visit for me.
  • After visiting this museum, you will have a different opinion about mushrooms :)
