Italy’s most innovative wine museum, as well as one of the world’s most important, opened its gates to the public in September 2010. It is set in the heart of a territory that is famous for its wines, and in the halls and rooms of a castle with a thousand-year history. Created from the imagination of François Confino, a designer of displays and installations in worldwide museums, the Barolo Wine Museum is an interactive voyage through culture and wine traditions. It plays on the millennia old beverage as a cultural product that is able to trace the evolution of entire civilizations, influence great artistic expression, and shape territories and their people. It is wine’s close ties to humanity and how it is interwoven with our history and traditions across countless civilizations that the WiMu wishes to express. As Confino clearly stated: «I have visited several museums dedicated to wine in the world. But none of them told of wine’s extraordinary cultural dimensions. It was fundamen

Overall this museum is good. It has some interesting presentation pieces such as the room with the "wine timeline." It's a good historical overview of wine. There is an interesting room where you get the perspective of the grape vines under the earth (root view)....More

I enjoyed the time during the visit. One of the best things to do in Barolo. It’s like a wine lunapark for adults. I felt like a kid :))

The museum is dedicated to Bacchus and all his toys :-) An eclectic collection of very very fine wines. Not to be missed if you are a wine lover

Waist of time and money. Exposition that can barely enchant a 5 year old, not to mention a adult. Nothing interesting on the process of wine making apart from some wanna be artist impressions. Avoid. Buy a book on wine. Have a glass of wine....More

Located in a very nice village, inside a very nice castle, this museum collects a number of cardboard figures, lights and sounds with "modern" inspiration, that really misses highlighting the value of the local traditions and culture. It gets 2 stars because of the view...More

What a disappointment! A rip-off of time and money! Reminded me of the Disney attraction/theme ride "It's a Small World Afterall" that I saw as a child at the Worlds Fair sometime in the 60s. It is a real shame that this is still open....More

If you like Piedmontese wines you will find this museum interesting, even fascinating. This region is where some of the best wines in the world come from.

This interesting Wine museum is housed in a castle like building, which requires about an hour to walk through, to appreciate the history of wine making, its development and appreciation through the years. We learnt a few new things about wine making in various countries/ages...More

Unusual displays attempting to tell the history of wine & winemaking....but it seemed more like a psychedelic trip via a wine fog. Walking from the third floor, down to the first floor, as directed by the person at the desk, was odd. It was difficult...More
