  • It's a museum inside the Castle. After the tour there is a possibility to taste and buy ... we enjoyed.

  • Dire unnecessary and a real steal considering value for money. 8 euros down the drain. I didn't think it could exist a museum so useless.

  • definitely caters to children than to adults with significant scenic effects. well built the part relating to the history of wine and the history of the wine barolo in particular and the section devoted to work there played by Silvio Pellico. It is not a classic Museum made of archaeological remains, partly because he would guess us shortly with the subject matter. my kids really enjoyed themselves and learned so much. the path is clear and consistent, easy to use. Exit opportunity to taste a variety of labels.

  • 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.
