This museum is among the top attraction in Bordeaux. It has such rich content around wine-making and the history. The exhibits are interactive. I can maximise the experience with the help of an audio device, which one can select different languages for the narratives. I spent total 4 hrs in there. The most interesting area is the exhibit displaying different smells that may use to describe the wines. I went on a Sat which was the Easter long weekend break, no queue at all. Our e-ticket barcodes were disabled when we tried to access level 8 to enjoy the complimentary drinks. The attendant was very helpful and she printed hard copy tickets for us instead. This little hiccup did not tarnish our experiences in the museum.

We liked the different ways of explaining about wine. Some interactive, others films of regions and methods of production. We didn't feel rushed and were able to get a pass to return after breaking for something to eat. Language no problem, with headsets for many different languages.

This museum was recommended to me by several people, and I entirely agree that it's worth the time and money - all the better if you stroll down the river from downtown Bordeaux to get there. It's very interactive and tech-heavy in accessing the various exhibits, so if that's not for you, be warned. (This was the only negative review I heard from anyone who's been.) But if you're ready to use the provided virtual tour aspects and headset, there's a ton to take in and learn from.
