This museum was recommended to me by several people, and I entirely agree that it's worth the time and money - all the better if you stroll down the river from downtown Bordeaux to get there. It's very interactive and tech-heavy in accessing the various exhibits, so if that's not for you, be warned. (This was the only negative review I heard from anyone who's been.) But if you're ready to use the provided virtual tour aspects and headset, there's a ton to take in and learn from.

The museum is lovely, modern, and overall a wonderful experience- be prepared to spend the whole day of you want to see everything without rushing, though! The only problem I had was with the audioguides- sometimes, they didn’t quite function, and also some parts of the exhibition are made so that only one person can view it at a time, so I dometimes had to wait for quite some time to access some informational tablets when it was more crowded. But the view from the belvedere made up for all the waiting!

The smell stations were amazing. Loved the relaxing exhibit on wine and love. The best part was wine sample on top floor with beautiful view of Bordeaux. Since we were on a cruise, the staff was able to print, but I couldn’t open and staff had difficulty because of non secure wifi.
