Well laid out for telling all aspects of the perfume industry from the different fragrances, sourcing of ingredients from across the world, influences of civilizations and art and craftsmanship. When I next pick up my bottle of Chanel no.5 I’ll think of this museum. (You...More

Very nice museum if you like perfume. We were visiting in the warm summer and the museums climate control system did not manage to keep up. It got very warm in some areas.

An excellent museum, though the lighting of some of the exhibits could have been better. I think they just needed to change the light bulbs! Very interactive for children and informative for all. Be careful coming into Grasse station while you’re waiting for the bus...More

We really enjoyed ourselves, though if you want this to be worth your time at all, you have to be a real perfume and history of it lover. We read every piece of information, saw all the videos, so we found the museum very amusing....More

I paid €4 for entrance. Sadly I have to say the museum wasn't worth it. I expected it to be a mix of textual information, interactiv, see, hear and smell. My experience was going through rooms with a lot of textual information displayed on the...More

I believe it changes with the seasons. It's best to check website or check with your hotel concierge. It is a very popular destination so I'd be surprised if hours were limited.
