Review Highlights
"Passport Vacances" (HQ in Fribourg,Switzerland)is a summer activity for kids to visit all kinds of unknown places.

Drove the bus there with 12 kids on board. They loved it and the staff really knew how to take them.

For over 30 years already, the world's first-ever food-themed museum has been sharing a global and independent view of the many aspects of the human diet. Its multidisciplinary, cultural, historical, scientific and nutritional-focused approach and its bold and original programme of activities have established the Alimentarium as the world's leading food-themed attraction. As the centrepiece of the Museum, the new permanent exhibition "Food - The essence of life" invites children and adults alike to take a fresh look at an activity steeped in history and laden with emotional significance: eating. The unique new scenography, combining discovery, experimentation and learning, invites visitors on a fun-filled, interactive journey through three new sectors: Food, Society and The Body. Enlivened with projections, interactive terminals and video installations, this immersive experience will make visitors aware of the influence diet can have on the body and its environment.

This is not a museum in the sense that an adult does not obtain new knowledge. On the other hand it is interactive and really interesting and funny for kids. Cook workshops available. Enjoy a fresh tarte!

Is not really a food museum but a analogy to food viewed trough Nestle corp. eyes.... So is better to spend your time staring at the like unless you are craving for some different experience.
