When I came here in high school, I'm sure they had candle making and bees and all sorts of things. I think they must have changed it because it was a bit disappointing when I brought my kids there 15 years later! The shop was great and had lots of unique honey themed items.

The staff is great and tried to be super educational, but this is not a museum! Not at ALL. It's a shop, we did out part and help the local economy but 50$, and are happy with out honey and mustard 😀 We were just looking for more😔

Yes, this place sells honey. No, there is nothing here -- absolutely positively nothing -- that resembles a museum. Skip it, unless, for some reason, you need to buy honey. This is just false advertising, and will divert you from doing other activities.

We really enjoyed our stop. You can sample a few local products, of course buy honey, and products made with honey including soaps, candles, ice cream and chocolates.

This place is no longer a "musee de l'abeille" but a small boutique shop that sells products with honey in them. The ladies who work there are uber sweet. Alas, the museum no longer exists. It's been like that since about 2012. A bit sad since it was a place I used to frequent each time I visited Quebec. Now... More

Beware! There is no Museum anymore (though they continue to distribute the leaflets). The headline "halte miel" is very misleading. This is in fact a small shop where you can buy honey and honey-based products. They make you try samples of honey and there was no explanation on bees, how is honey made, or whatsoever...

The Musee de l'Abeille used to be a great place to go with your family, you could learn on bees, have a presentation about bees and see how they lived. But now, you only have a ew walls with information on them. One of the great things about this museum is that you can buy really good honey products and... More

Several pieces of equipment and explanations of honey making do not a museum make. Basically a gift shop with honey based products. Clean, some sampling and interesting candies. i bought one of the vinegarettes (balsamic orange) because of the bottle. Did not like the product but still have the bottle which came with a spout using it for my own... More

This was our 3rd time visiting this honey and mead product shop. I understand that it was remodeled a couple of years ago. They've removed the working hive, but the little museum is informative and nicely done. There are honeys available for tasting and a nice selection of products for purchase; honey, candy, ice cream, mead, bee pollen, royal jelly... More
