Skip the line took 45 minutes!

When we arrived at the Cite du Vin the person behind the desk asked me to email her my tickets, which was the only way we could get in. I found this a bit odd, but tried to email them, without luck. They said very rudely that this was the only way to get in. Twenty minutes later, after trying several different ways were were able to send the email from Viator to me to the operator. It doesn't make any sense. Every other tour we went on had tickets that were scannable. Then, we were pressed for time and went straight to the top for the wine tasting. The woman behind the desk said there wasn't a line, but when we got off the elevator, it was packed with people and many lines. I was not happy being in the venue with so many individuals packed inside. We waited another 20 minutes or so in line for our wine, which left only a half hour to walk around the museum. It turned out to be an expensive glass of wine with a very crowded view of the city.

Wonderful museum to get a clear understanding of everything having to do with wine. Great to start out your visit to Bordeaux in preparation of vineyard visits or at end of your stay in the area to pull all of your knowledge together.

I pre paid for my fast track tickets as we did not have much time in Bordeaux. There was no queue and it took me much longer to get my tickets than people who just walked in. Very annoying. It was an interesting , hi tech venue , but a bit sparse and soulless.

Fun afternoon, so much information, but a fun day. Lovely wine at the top.

The building is amazing, the transport links to get there are easy, the view from the top with your glass of wine is different to the other views of the city. The museum itself is set out with audio tours which is helpful as you can walk around at your own pace. We had been to 2 other wine museums in Bordeaux by this point, and I think, if we went again, we would go here first. Very detailed information on the soil, climate, region, flavour and manufacturing. Sadly we missed the seminars that might have been more interesting, including the tastings, as it was March and they were not running them in English. If a tasting class or the sensory room had been open in English that might have made this into THE place to learn about wine. Would go back if visited Bordeaux again.

La Cité du Vin is a great experience - fun and informative. But it turns out the time and date we went late afternoon on a Tuesday in July, the skip the line feature was unnecessary!

A great addition to Bordeaux. Not terribly well organised once you are inside the exhibition - we were not sure which way to go a few times. Also a number of the exhibits end up with quite a queue waiting to use them. We spent 2.5 hours there and could have seen more if it had been clearer how you were meant to progress through the exhibition. By the time we got to some of the later exhibits - which might have been good - we were getting tired No long queue - even in late July - but good to know we would not have been held up if there had been.

No one in line so we couldn't skip! Very informative museum covering EVERY aspect of wine. free glass of wine was nice. Could use sitting areas on top floor where wine is tasted. Even high tops for standing would be nice. Interesting gift shop.
