"The Second World War and The Holocaust Galleries literally and figuratively, bring global and personal stories of humanity and inhumanity, into the light." - Museums and Heritage Awards judges

Cultural blog Invisible Bordeaux reviews La Cité du Vin, the world's largest visitor centre dedicated to the story of wine. Casson Mann's sensory and immersive wine experience opened in 2016.

"The takeaway is that the Cité du Vin truly is a world-class exhibition. It could be argued that the world of wine certainly deserved something as unusual, as creative and as imaginative as the Cité du Vin, and surely Bordeaux can be saluted for having delivered it."

"...the sheer breadth of the formats and concepts of what is showcased is hugely impressive, and the tailor-made content that is piped into the exhibits is genuinely top quality and seamlessly consistent in terms of tone and approach."

"The hands-on “Buffet of the five senses” is arguably the most fun of the whole Cité, with a whole host of objects to observe, scratch, squeeze, smell, listen to and feel, to sharpen all senses!"
