Fun Little Museum
Oct 2019 • Couples
This is a small museum dedicated to the history of the corkscrew. It contains hundreds, possibly thousands of corkscrews throughout history. There are also quite a few novelty corkscrews. If you have a few minutes to spare, it is interesting, but it is not a must see while in the Barolo region.

Quirky and interesting

We enjoyed this museum! I do think that the 4€ entry fee is a bit steep but it isn’t a reason not to go. There are several walls of different corkscrews - styles and types. It was amazing to look at them all and see how they have played a role in far more than opening a bottle of wine. I recommend going here after visiting WiMu .. it is a great accompaniment to the fun and insight that WiMu offers.

If u think u got screwed tasting wine at the palace then don't go here...
Oct 2018 • Family
We were shocked at the prices charged at the borolo palace center... about 1.50 to 2.00 euro for a sip to taste... here at the shop of this museum it was 5 euro.... just to taste!

If u fall for either then u need to look at the fool in the mirror...

Recommend going to any local enoteca anywhere in piemont to avoid such flagrant abuse. Much better selection, service and friendly hosts

An interesting twist of wine culture
Sep 2018 • Couples
This small museum, located close to the Barolo Castle, offers a wonderful collection of instruments used over the centuries to uncork bottles of wine. he ingenuity of our ancestors is clearly in evidence. it is also clear that we are much better off today, with the variety of easy-to-use and inexpensive instruments for the consumer. The Museum is open between 10:am and 6:00 pm (with one hour closed for lunch), but it is closed on Thursdays.

Not worth visiting!

It’s a real scam: 4€ entrance fee for 4 square meters where you will spend no longer than 4 minutes.

Corkscrew Colectors
Nov 2017 • Friends
I am a Corkscrew colector myself and I found this little place very interesting. The local shop also helps me to improve my collection. They sell some old fashion as well as modern marvelous pieces.

Go see an array of corkscrew items........
Nov 2017 • Couples
In Barolo, what better place for a corkscrew museum? Pay your admission, browse threw the wines and wine items, and then enter. They take you thru a self guided tour with many explanations and visual aspects of the history of the corkscrew. Many on display.

A tiny jewel
Nov 2017 • Couples
Amazing collection of corkscrews - but also hosted inside a great wine store. The corkscrews are well displayed, and also include some nice additional surprises, like old post cards, or a collection of 100 grappa bottles from Levi - a real treat. It will only take few minutes to visit it all, but it will amaze you with the originality and ingenuity of these corkscrews, and the amazing selection of items from all over the world. For the small entrance fee, you get a very nice and unique memory. Much better than wasting time and money at the Museo del Vino
