The museum is in a vaulted cellar and has great atmosphere. The English language guide was a hand held audio guide which was difficult to hear if other visitors were listening to a different part of the recording, ie there were no head phones. It was also quite boring to listen to as the reader had a funny American accent... More

We visited the Musee du Vin as it was just around the corner from our hotel and we had limited time on our last day in Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed looking around and the staff were very friendly and informative. Finished off with a beautiful glass of exquisite red wine.

We wondered what we could learn about wine, my companion growing up in Paris and having wine since she was a child, and me discovering red wine as a prescription from my doctor 30 years ago. Despite traveling the world and visiting many wineries, this museum proved to be the most interesting of all. Many fascinating factoids for the wine... More

After you've been to the big popular museums, get off the beaten path and explore this odd little place. You'll learn a bit about the production of French wine and this particular part of Paris.

We had high expectations but it wasn't really what we thought it was. To view the museum, it's 13,90€ per person... Thats way to much for a 10min walk through the museum and 1 cheap bad wine after.. Oh and almost forgot... You get a mp3 player with 'english' language that was real hard to understand. And the moldy walls... More

Perhaps expectations were too high, but I was disappointed in this museum. The displays are very basic and there is very little related to the history or art of wine making. Most displays are simply erratic and small collections of tools, earthenware and glassware.

Nice wine, cosy locale, friendly personnel and a lot of wine knowledge. We did not know of this place and ended up being happily surprised.

This funky little museum has a short but very good history of wine. Then the restaurant is awesome. Oh wait....check out the wine list!

If you are well worth a visit if you are interested in anything to do with wine..... The history & artefacts are fascinating & there are lots of curiosities.... They do a wine & cheese flight at the end which is a separate price, but also worth it!!

Although the exhibit itself is interesting, the real star of this attraction is their wine tasting. We were presented with 3 different wines to compare and contrast, all three wonderful! Much better than you'd get at a random cafe or bistro. For an additional $10/person, they'll have a wine master walk you through your tasting as well. He wasn't available... More

Staying in Trocadero

Neighbourhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
