  • In two years, they have significantly improved the Museum. Of beautiful well identified cases. A very friendly welcome. Unknown mushrooms. It's very interesting. Staff at the exit of the mushrooms for sale.

  • I really feel that the museum should have closed a few weeks before our visit. The preserved mushrooms in glass were very interesting but the latter half with the growing mushrooms was pretty much emp...  more »
  • Museum in 2 parts (species and production) visit 1 hour rate: €9 (a little expensive) friendly visit we learn lots of points put forward quite choses.quelques. We preferred the production part. Downside: - a little dated - part workshop to improve (better explain the workshop) - part on wild mushrooms many more explanations for seasoned people. -difficult for novices to retain subtlety between mushrooms from same family. -Personally I wish to know the main rules of the collection database and the principles, I quite understand.

  • 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 :)
  • Amazing!
