There are two museums. One in the village of Camembert and one in Vimoutier. The one in Camembert is quite interesting and you can sample the cheeses afterwards. The other maybe the subject of criticism in these reviews. Check it out carefully.

We stopped at this museum at the recommendation of a driving tours of France book, and it was really not worth the visit. The museum offered a movie that seemed to have been made in the 1960s and was entirely in French, with no translation. We then moved on to the "museum" portion of the visit, which was put together...

Average. The cheese is not actually made here. The initial films they show you are in French, and no English translation, and last for approx 20mins. The actual museum itself is 1 room, and if I am honest a little worthless. Definitely would give this a miss, and visit the Livetof Fromargie instead. A working cheese factory.

Really enjoyed this museum, I came out understanding the value of the camembert rather than the price, the tasting was good too

The musee was closed until 2 pm , they have really long lunch breaks . Camembert is a very tiny hamlet with nothing else there to see. The views are spectacular .

Definitely wasn't what we expected and it is quite an old and tired display, but we had a laugh there. The degustation was nice at the end.

Worth a visit, even if it's for the tasters and cidre at the end, but the exhibits are tired and there is a real need to update how the Camembert story is presented. Easy to find with plenty of on-street car parking right outside the door.
