Thank you very much for your review. The film also has subtitles in English and French. They should have informed you at reception.

This is a wonderful little museum, brilliantly laid out and with captions in English as well as French, Spanish and Catalan. We were there for over an hour and the ludicrously low charge for us "jubilados" was €1.50 each - money very well spent. It...More

An unusual choice of subject but really fascinating . Cork is not just for wine bottles . You will really enjoy this stylish museum and then visit the art museum next door . Both are very reasonably priced .

Gave an insight into how cork was harvested, processed and turned into a variety of goods not just 'corks'. Interesting array of machinery for making a variety of cork objects. Staff were friendly and the shop had interesting cork souvenirs.
