Bit of a pilgrimage site for those who love Opinel knives. Great to see the history, how they are made and all the models and products. Museum is very small, doesn't take much more than an hour... more »
Museum is small but very interesting. The shop is great and there is a small drinks bar too. Worth the visit for fantastic knives!
Stall, but fine museum. You could get a nice insight into the the historic and recent production process. Additionally an art exhibition taking into account Opinel knives is available. All that for free. Of course you need to pass through the museum shop at the exit, but the prices are fair and you could get the range of products. Recommended (with kids also).
