Musée du Vin Tips (6)

Hips ! You'll have another visit ?

The museum's theme put beside its location sounds like a joke : where would you put a wine museum ?
The parisian one is ... rue des eaux (waters' street) (and to think there is a rue Vineuse (wine street) about 200 meters from there).

The Wine Museum is situated in the remaininng 250 meters of underground galleries (inside the Chaillot hill) of a Minimes medieval Monastery's former cellars. The Brothers cultivated the land in the area and were supposed to make an excellent rosé.
In the 17th century, hot springs were discovered in the area and were used for 200 years giving their name to the current "Rue des Eaux".

The Wine museum, not only features exhibits about the traditions of viticulture and wine-making (tools, drowings, ...), but also provides tasting lessons, organises receptions and seminars - themed around wine of course.

Like in many parisian museums, there is a restaurant, serving traditional dishes along fine wines ( the dining rooms are in the museum's medieval vaults). (lunch : menu at 18€, wine included; else count 25-30€)

Open everyday except Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. - visit 8€ (includes a guide book and a complementary glass of wine)
5 Rue des Eaux (square Charles Dickens) in the 16th
Metro : Passy - RER : Tour Eiffel-Champ de Mars - Bus : 72

Small Wine Museum - skip it.

Because I recently became interested in wine I decided to visit the museum and have lunch at their restaurant.
After a visit to Eiffel Tower I went over the Pont d'Iena and found this little museum just to learn that I have to wait to have lunch for about one hour. After 20 minutes I finished looking at the collection of many things involved in wine making. By the museum we were offered to taste wine and cheese for additional pay. I didn't like the wine... I just thought for the wine museum they could offer something more significant.
After all they did not let us eat at the restaurant for whatever reason... Thank god, I saved time and money to visit more museums in the area.

Opened Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 3 pm

Musee du Vin

France is a wine country, and here you have the possibility to experience the history of winemaking inside a museum housed in the old cellars of the 15th century Passy Convent. The entrance fee on 8 euro includes admittance to the museum and a glass of wine after the tour.

Please check my travelogue for more pictures.

To find it, start at the Eiffel Tower:
1. cross the bridge: Pont Diena.
2. Then turn left to Avenue du pt Kennedy.
3. Walk until you see Rue des Eaux on the right side
4. Walk up Rue des Eaux until you see the Musee du Vin

Open everyday from 10:00 until 18:00, except monday

Wine Museum

This museum is in an ancient stone-and-clay quarry used by 15th-century monks as a wine cellar. It provides an introduction to the art of wine making, displaying various tools, beakers, cauldrons, and bottles in a series of exhibits. The quarry is right below Balzac's house, and the ceiling contains a trap door he used to escape from his creditors.

If you want something...

If you want something original, try Le musee de vin (The Wine Museum). This is a great place, across the river from the Eiffel Tower.
It is located inside an old cave that monks used to store wines, so the inside is very can almost close your eyes and imagine you were back two hundred years. The museum details the history of winemaking, bottling, corks and fermentation processes. There is a wine tasting at the end of the self-guided tour.
