Overview
More
VINSEUM (firstly known as Museu de Vilafranca) was founded in 1934 with the aim of bringing together different collections related to the Penedes region. The permanent exhibition at the VINSEUM is dedicated to the vineyard and wine, and the close connection these have with the Penedes region and Catalonia. The journey starts on the third floor of the Royal Palace and ends with a cava or wine tasting in the tavern of the museum.. VINSEUM will take you on a journey through the stories of wine, to rediscover the footprints it has left us, from its origins to the present time, from the land where the vine stems to the sensorial explosion of wine tasting. Come and experience!

Visit well worth the €7 per person. Very informative although I don't think the audioguides added anything. Lockers available to stow baggage during the visit. Free taste of the wine in the attached taverna afterwards.

The museum was quite interesting but they can't decide whether they want to be informative or entertaining so do neither especially well. The exhibits could be interesting if they were better explained. There is a multilingual electronic guide but it has too much flowery waffle...More

If it's open, you must visit this place for a glass of wine. Fantastic selection of very good local wines and freshly made tapas. Didn't eat here but from what I read they weren't your normal, boring tapas.

Thank you Julie P for giving your opinion of the museum. We are really convinced that after visiting the exhibition the tasting experience is much more special. For this reason we undersatnd the museum's tavern as another room of the museum.

VINSEUM is more than a museum. It is a modern conception of explaining the world of wine with activities for all ages. After the visit, it's worth to relax at the tavern and to taste some wines and cavas.
