Yes, this place sells honey. No, there is nothing here -- absolutely positively nothing -- that resembles a museum. Skip it, unless, for some reason, you need to buy honey. This is just false advertising, and will divert you from doing other activities.

We really enjoyed our stop. You can sample a few local products, of course buy honey, and products made with honey including soaps, candles, ice cream and chocolates.
