  • This museum was fantastic but perhaps by accident. You will not learn anything about wine, barolo (neither the wine nor the region!), mankind, DNA or the universe (yes, the museum attempts to cover these topics as well…). It is instead an attempt at ‘deep’ meaning without direction which fails so miserably it is actually hilarious (favorites being the winged metronomes and the lips singing rock). My partner and I had our biggest laugh in a long time, well worth the steep entry fee. Buckle up for a great time, and please also buckle up the creator somewhere where he can’t cause more trouble!
  • Horrible museum. Cart board people and a yellow room representing the sun. Totally not informative. Don’t go here just drink wine!
  • 😳 don't go .this place is an absolute shame
  • A little hokey at times but worth the price of admission.
  • Museums are not usually what I like best about traveling, but I loved visiting this museum. I found it visually appealing and colorful. Perfect view from the top outside. The subject matter, wine, is fun for me, and I thought it was presented well, including educational material that was fresh to me.
