    I went expecting to learn something fascinating about truffles in this village at the centre of truffle hunting but the entire exhibition is resolutely in French apart from one video so it is basically static reading. There's a single sheet of paper in English grudgingly offered at the ticket entrance (and demanded back) that isn't anything like adequate. American visitors must also be as disappointed as I was. There isn't a shop, it's all a bit lacklustre and jumbled up. Lots of missed opportunities here.

    5 Euro entrance, fun little museum and bookstore with an english guidebook. I wish I had studied a bit more in biology but still enjoyed learning more about the most tasty fungus!
