If you're coming from America then you'll enjoy this Piemont similar likeness to Vegas. Put a pre-paid card in the auto-wine dispenser, push the 2 euro, 5 or 10 button (? might not be exact but u get the point) and out spurts a respective...More

After getting multiple recommendations to go to this museum, we made the bad decision to check it out. You do not obtain any useful information about wine or the area. The exhibits are cheap and many of them are broken. After a while, we just...More

This is such a horrible, hokey museum. Save yourself the time and money. The 5th floor is full of ridiculous displays that do not further your knowledge of wines. They have a time line of when wines were developed around the world...but I can Google...More

We were a group of 13 friends, visiting WiMu with a guide - and had obviously done a poor pre-research of what to expect. The museum lacks a focus and is “all over the place”. Instead of focusing on the wine production in the region...More

Many of the interactive displays were broken/inoperable. There seemed to be an issue with overall maintenance. The historical wine story was interesting. The wine "store" downstairs was a nice way to try local wines that we may have not otherwise been exposed. Might be worth...More

I've been all over the world and seen installations or museums for wine/beer. This was the worst. For 2/3 of the tour it is a concept museum without much direction towards wine history or artifacts. Think interactive art installation. The most time we spent was...More

Great concept, a lot of good information and examples. Wine tasting possible, would say perfect for beginners to get known with Barolo and region 👌

I believe this place is underrated by other reviewers. The museum is well-organized, thought through and creatively decorated. It is good for education and definitely not boring. It seems like most of interactive expositions have been made by schoolchildren, but I may be mistaken.

The Barolo Wine Museum is both for children and for adults and it offers several interactive activities. It is less "traditional" than other wine museums I have visited but definitely worth to visit.

I suppose that this museum is thought as a visit after a lot of wine tasting to keep you in the surreal, dreamlike, chaotic and absurd that this museum is. I had quite a lot of wine so I found it fascinating and confusing in...More
