We really enjoyed visiting this wine museum in Barolo. It was clever, innovative and sophisticated. Moreover it was informative even to wine tragics.

I was not expecting much from another museum, but the Museo del Vino a Barolo was a surprise. Slightly haunted in atmosphere it was an interesting ode to wine. From the flying metronomes to the mesmeric TV lips singing songs about wine from around the world, this was a fun place to spend a little time.

Very disappointing, overdone 'artistic' exhibition about wine and its history in mankind. You learn nothing about wine making and local traditions. In addition modest exhibition of the family that lived in the castle for centuries. We were with 4, entree total of €32. Better spend this on a bottle of Barolo (with a 'little' extra euros needed:-)

If you are visiting Barolo and need a break from fine wine tasting and excellent food to eat, then the castle is worth a look. The castle is old, but the museum is modern in its approach to sharing the wine history of the region and beyond. Yes, it is quirky and fun. Why do museums have to be dull?... More

Some might say 'courageous' as well. This 'museum' is not your regulation museum, focussing more on the more esoteric, artful aspects of wine and the history of wine, and I'm not sure if they succeed in pulling it off. There is plenty of colour and movement, the building is beautiful and the enoteca is worthwhile visiting at the end of... More

For once we were glad to be OAPs as we did not waste as much on this as others paying the full price for the ticket. I learned nothing about the history of winemaking at all! It seemed to be designed for school trips, but badly. The rooms on occasion were so dark, it was difficult to judge whether it... More

The WiMu is located in the gorgeous Barolo castle with the most amazing views. While the museum displays are quirky and fun, the museum does a good job in taking you through a journey of the history of wine. Certainly worth a visit even if it's just to stroll the streets of Barolo. Simply gorgeous town and with breathtaking views.

Not at all what I was expecting from a wine museum. As others have said, kids might find the interactive exhibits fun but for everybody else, I thought it a complete No No. There was hardly anything of real interest for anybody with the slightest knowledge of wine. Some exhibits crass, some too simple, some childish. For me it was... More

Visited on a quiet Sunday morning and spent two very happy hours including wine tasting at the end. The tour takes you on the history of wine growing through the ages. Its fun and interactive. At the end you are able to sample wines from all around the region. Cost between 10 and twenty euros depending on how many you... More
