    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!

    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.

    French only, not very informative! Not. Much value in the visit for en lish speakers!

  • "Awful"

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by josh987654321 (Leighton Buzzard, United Kingdom) on 24/09/2020

    Boring and tiny. People inside were not wearing masks and coughing, which made us uncomfortable. Very expensive jarred truffles that you can purchase for a fraction of the cost elsewhere. Avoid!

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by Robert1661 (Simondium, South Africa) on 05/06/2019

    A true ecomuseum all about truffles. That is what it says. Unfortunately with the worst service I ever experienced. The two ladies behind the counter were not interested to explain or help. One lady...
