  • The Museum has been completely reorganized in order to make the most of the technological innovation. Very nice interactive is both environments with small diorama. Nice; interesting and preserved the rooms of Silvio Pellico and Countess. Beautiful antique dining room setting. The tour ends in the regional wine cellar with possibility to buy Barolo. Recommended.

  • Met by chance. The panoramic terrace of the Castle until the old cellars, the heart of the building, where the middle of the nineteenth century was the barolo wine. Bello Il castello Disappointing tasting!

  • Is the sign on the door that the website (just double-checked) said that over the weekend of 18/19 February the Museum would be open. It was not so. And the whole country seemed like a ghost town. We did struggle to find a restaurant open. Yet it was a beautiful sunny day and we weren't the only ones who roam the small town looking for a sign of life. What a pity!

  • the information given on the brochure is mischievous. Seems to visit a museum dedicated to wine, but the information provided are nonexistent. The visit consists of many audiovisual experiences that don't really say anything. Plus, reading the brochure you may understand that at the end of the visit there is a wine tasting ..there is, but it's not included in the museum ticket and so it's basically like going in a normal shop. The only positive thing was the view of Barolo from the top of the terrace.
  • THE MUSEUM IS MODERN AND INTERACTIVE AS WELL AS WELL-MAINTAINED. IT DEDICATES GREAT SPACE TO THE GENERAL HISTORY OF WINE. I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED A GREATER FOCUS ON THE CURRENT LOCAL PRODUCTION OF BAROLO WINE SPECIFICALLY. THE VISIT CONCLUDES AT THE ENOTECA REGIONALE DEL BAROLO WHERE YOU CAN TASTE BAROLO WINE (WHICH YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR ON TOP OF THE ENTRANCE FEE OF 8 EUR).
  • Nice museum in the castle of Barolo, dedicated to the region's pride, the barolo-wine and wine in general. Interesting to visit, even in the company of children. Attractive displays explaining the history of wine-culture. At the end of the visit: possibility of wine-tasting (with an extra fee), focussing on Barolo DOP wines. Opportunity for budget-aware wine-lovers to taste more expensive wine. Must-see in the Piedmonte region, which is known for its excellent wines. The museum is surrounded by some nice restaurants, often using barolo-wine in their recipes. Prices are ,unfortunately, not that low.
  • Surprisingly beautiful and fun museum. Lots of things to explore for adults and kids. Finish with a wine tasting.
  • Experiential Museum worth a visit! the cost is 8 € per person, but there are discounts for groups that free tickets (if you own the card for museums of Piedmont). The history of wine told in three stories with extremely catchy and original mode.
