  • I loved the visit, I found the path and dispersed with unclear directions (we got lost on the way). I admire the attempt at making an interactive museum, which also explains the history of Barolo, however for the cost of the ticket (€8 adults) could be more interesting. The path ends in the basement, in the cantina comunale (an invitation to buy wine).

  • The location is really nice but from a wine museum at the Langhe I would expect more explanations and other aspects, though the interactive part is nice.  more »
  • We liked it a lot. The location is special, the castle of Barolo you can during the show to see some of the rooms in their glitzy staging. The Museum is different, with an initial part that maybe fly too "high" multisensory but showing the love of those who created the exhibition design for the subject matter. We found very nice and educational preparation of the second stage, if you have the patience to read historical and panels of the basement, with the virtual classroom on the various phases of the management of the grapes from the collection. Divertentii also calls on painting art, music and cinema. We were in an hour and a half and had fun.

  • We had a really good time here, even the non-vinos in our group. The museum was really well laid out, packed with interesting information and had some very creative and interesting displays. It was also impeccably clean and well maintained. Definitely worth taking and hour going through before touring the wineries for a broad history of wine in the region.
  • Quirky wine museum - very few artefacts, and a rather artistic interpretation but interesting perspectives. Wonderful and imposing location in the castle with lovely views around Barolo and surrounding country from the roof. Cellar empties into the regional enoteca.
  • I will not recommend this, they just had written the history of wine, and nothing else mature enough about wine.
  • Very nice and entertaining museum. The multimedia presentations are very entertaining and give a good insight on the Piemonte winemakers history.
  • The first part of the tour was overly abstract and weird (there were flying metronomes at one point), the second part was overly involved (50 paragraphs of text one after the other) and unattractive, and the third part was uninteresting (rooms dedicated to movies, music, food, and royalty). What I wanted to learn about was the winemaking process, the history of Barolo, the peculiarities of Barolo's land, and what makes the wine special. Plus it cost €8 to enter and the wine tasting at the end is €2-€4 per sip. Waste of time and money.
