Our travel guide said that this one was ‘not to miss’ but we were a bit disappointed. Very large, lots of objects but except the word ‘cognac’ there was no English word to be found. An interesting introduction movie would be understandable if it had English subtitles….. A large collection of cognac bottles and labels, that’s for sure!

In this place you can learn by heart a little bit of Cognac culture. What way Cognac was produced in the past, More interesting histories. You shall pay some fee to enter.

The model of the area shows just how many vineyards there are producing cognac.we were able to drive round quite a few if them using this as an orientation. Film is very good as well, nice modern clean facilities as well.

Great museum - a wonderfully modern space, really well curated with a thoughtful mix of information and presentation. Went with our 15&13 Yr old girls and all of us found it worthwhile. Wish we’d gone earlier in our holiday so we’d have und more about the region while here!
Very friendly staff and excellent English translations.

Recently revamped museum essentially covering the cognac industry but great for kids with hands on stuff. Excellent english translations of the story boards and free audio guide.

What a little gem! The exhibits are in English-quite a first for us in France! We also got a free audio translation for the videos-great films of the history & processing of cognac. Who knew it was so complicated? Don't miss this on your visit!

A very informative presentation of how Cognac is made, packaged and marketed. I got the impression it was far more objective than a tour of a distillery house would be as well as being far less expensive. Most of the displays have text in English and headphones are supplied at no charge to hear English audio of the films included as part of the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Musee des Arts du Cognac. It was easy to find and is close walking distance from the Charente River if arriving by boat. From the many ancient and different Cognac bottles and equipment on display to the short film clips showing the production process, all was interesting. The building is modern and clean and the staff friendly. Well worth a visit if you are in Cognac.
