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 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
