Nice place to visit and discover the secrets of one of the most amazing beverages. The proposed tasting is very interesting and helps you to understand the authentic absinthe styles.

This museum exactly represents my concept of museums: 3 small floors, a full, detailed tour wouldn't take more than one, one and half hours. Located in Motiers, the whole valley is something majestic to gaze upon, even before getting to know that this is one...More

In a beautifully restored old town house. 3-floor exhibition. In French, German and English. If you wish, the visit can be concluded by a tasting of various absinths. Very well done and interesting.

The museum is small and not very interesting. I would not go a second time and I do not think it is a "must". The history of the absinthe itself is interesting and the degustations are nice
