So much unexpected fun and quite interesting as well. Learn about how different cheeses are made, visit an extensive museum...huge, and sample yummy cheeses! There is also a lovely store at the end. Definitely worth a visit.

We went as we were in the area and were told it was worth it to go. It's worth noting you can only view the exhibition on a tour (ours was at 3) so just check before you arrive. The tour was in French but...More

Had a group tour around this museum and it was very interesting. Allow a couple of hours at least. Had a nice tasting of cheese at the end.

Now this is the type of attraction which is both enjoyable and informative at the same time. You'll learn about historic dairy practices, milking, cheese production, packaging, aging and distribution! A film also. English spoken. Excellent. ..

As a former dairy farmer, this place was made for me! A fantastic collection of antique dairy equipment, much of which I remember using (which is quite scary!), was beautifully displayed and curated. Quirkiness at its finest! I enthusiastically dragged my poor wife to the...More
