  • The museum part is quite interesting and gives a good idea of the creation and evolution of the firm. It seems however that the main attraction is the ‘Museum shop’ ( that is the factory outlet...

  • My friend loves Opinel. We saw the knives on our day trip to Annecy, looked it up, and realized we were close (enough) to make it to the museum and store. We arrived near closing and we’re still able to make a purchase. The staff was kind and patient with us including my toddler and infant. Opinel makes high quality knives and they engrave them in the store. We were so grateful to pick up some functional special souvenirs. The drive was beautiful and the town charming. Highly recommend. My only regret was not buying more.
  • The museum is wonderful. It really helped me understand the history of Opinel and how their knives are different from every other knife I've ever had. The staff is very friendly and all speak excellent English. I bought several knives and then went back later to exchange one of them and get them all engraved. They kindly helped and gave me a little history of the town while I waited and then put all the knives in individual gift bags for me. Very kind. Oh, and the knives are about 33% cheaper here than on Amazon, so definitely stop in if you have the chance.
