A small but nicely done-out place where you get a little taster pack of Gruyere with your entry and the audio guides are quite good. It's nice to see the people making the cheese in the factory. Nice to see where the Gruyere is made...More
The train ride to Gruyeres was great with stunning views and the Cheese house is the first thing you see when you leave the station, had a nice meal there but the tour was totally underwhelming sorry. We travelled independently would not have wanted to...More
Being to Holland to see the cheese making in love, this place don’t really bother with audio guide. Prefer to have a personal guide with live demonstration like I experience in Holland. However the cheese is not too bad that produced here. To be honest,...More
The museum is a few pictures and old tools. You don't even get to see cheese made, because they are only making a batch every while.
The only nice thing is a row of flower scents to try out
oh, and you get some cheese...More
This is super easy to find, literally across the street from the train station. There is a gift shop, restaurant, and of course the tour.
The tour is self-guided with headsets programmed for whatever language you tell them. At various times during the day you’re...More
The impression I got from the start to finish of our visit to this cheese museum was clinical and hungry. It was clinical in it's layout and it's operation. It was very impersonal and I got the impression that all that was wanted was your...More
The tour is very informative and narrated by, of course, a cow. We enjoyed it. We didn't get to watch any cheese production, which apparently mostly goes on in the morning around 9ish. The 3-pack of aged cheese samples that you can enjoy while taking...More

The tour is inside the factory and if you do the entire tour to watch everything from pouring in the rennet to emptying the vats to make cheese rounds, it takes about 2 hours. The tour is self guided though with an audio tour, so if you want to move through the exhibits faster, you can. You just might miss watching part of the cheese making process. We were the only ones during the day we visited who actually stayed the full 2 hours. Most folks just walked through, snapped some photos, and left. Just depends on what your interests are.
The castle is very close to the cheese place (not even a 10 minute walk) but I would recommend starting at the Maison Gruyeres if you want to see the entire cheese making process. They make only 3 or 4 batches of cheese a day so the tours start at certain times. I would recommend going to the first one in the morning as you'll possibly have fewer tourists and once you're at the castle, there's lots to do so you could easily spend a half day there. Right next to the castle are 2 museums (Tibet Museum and Giger Museum, though haven't been to either), the H.R.Giger Bar, which is a must visit if only to see the fantastic artistic interior, and there are lots of tourist shops and restaurants right in the little village of Gruyeres where the castle is.
Hope that helps!
