  • Truly one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. SO futuristic and exciting to go through. An absolute adventure for the senses and mind. You learn so much and experience so many high tech, mind blowing stations. Absolute 5/5 spent two hours inside before closing time and didn’t even scratch the surface so definitely leave enough time to enjoy. Finish with a free glass of wine on the rooftop with amazing views.
  • This building looks a lot like the Guggenheim but in this case of wine... We started the experience from the rooftop were you are invited to try a glass of Bordeaux wine. From there you can see the city from an upper position and enjoy the river side area while having a great wine. We decided to stay in the inside area as the day was a bit cold. When we finished having the wine we went down to the exhibit area. When in the exhibit they provided us a audio guide, with this audio guide you can touch connect to the audio from all the presentations that you wish and learn more about wines. The exhibition is really interactive and fun. We learned a bit more about wines. It's always cool to learn about this! The overall of this experience is a 10 as you can enjoy a lot with the project and the technological interaction! A MUST see if you visit Bordeaux! ENJOY!
