This was on the "bucket list" of things to do in the area. The museum was small, but gave a good overview of the history of Parma ham and how all the different salamis, proscuitto, etc... has been made in the past. We did not start off with an audio guide in English, but quickly realized that most of the writing was in Italian. So for a few additional Euro, we rented the audio guide, which was well worth it. I think we paid for the museum with a credit card. Afterwards went to get a taste at the venue next door; related, but seemed separate. Well worth it - prosciutto like butter! Probably the best value on the trip! I think I remeber 5 Euros cash for one tasting plate...

We started our tour at the Museum of Prosciutto, the girl at the entrance very kind, we saw how the italians started the process of the most famous ham in the world. After the tour at the museum, we have been consiliated to make a degustation, at the nearby restaurant. Good value for money. Excelent local hams and cheese. If you pass by Langhirano you should do a visit here.
