We visited all of the WOW “museums” over a four day period during a wet November - dry and bargains with the over 65’s concession WOW card. They are, apart from the Bridge Collection, not museums in the conventional sense. More of an educational exhibition. The wine experience takes you right the way from growing the vines through harvest, fermenting, bottling and drinking. It took us about two hours to go through the exhibition. Nice in November, but would not like to attempt this during the tourist season. The exhibition is exceptionally well curated with a mix of static and interactive displays. There is something for everyone from total beginner to more experienced wine buffs. You see something new every time you visit. Every day is a school day with new facts emerging as you pass through.


Don’t waste your time We visited we learnt through rooms and rooms how wine in Portugal is cultivated the types of soils the types of grapes and how the wine is made this lasts over an hour then you get to taste 3 poor quality wines which you wait over 45 mins in a room with just benches in it’s a poor representation of what should be a showcase of the fabulous wines of Portugal don’t bother with this your


Interesting museum if you don't know what the wine making process is. Overall very well done. I strongly recommend the wine tasting as it's not something you can usually do. The guy seemed enjoying doing his job and that, in my opinion, is what makes the difference about this museum.


We visited WOW as part of our trip to Porto and we did the Wine Experience then the Pink Palace. We would definitely recommend them both. We got a top tip - do the Wine Experience first for learning then the Pink Palace afterwards for fun :) We have visited vineyards before but definitely learned new things during the wine experience. You can take it at your own pace which is great and there are some places where you can sit and watch a video or just take the weight off your feet as there is a reasonable amount of walking/standing involved. By the end our feet were definitely feeling a little heavy so we sped things up but didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Then the wine tasting at the end was great. Again, very educational, and we learned new things we haven't learned at other tastings. Plus the wine was nice - always a bonus!


We lived here 30 years ago and had no idea WoW was here. We visited both the Taylor’s restaurant and the wine museum. The wine museum was excellently laid out. Both informative and interactive. Definitely worth a visit

A great experience packed full of detail. Lots to get through, but it’s well laid out and the interactive exhibits keep you engaged. Wine tasting with Joao at the end was brilliant! Definitely recommend.


A brilliant and fun introduction to the world of wine for all levels, from amateur enthusiast to trade professional.


Nestled on the side of the hill in Vila Nova de Gaia, enjoying sensational views across the River Douro and over to old city of Porto is the World of Wine. Flanked by the historic Taylor’s Port house this site has been beautifully developed offering a variety of restaurants, shops and the utterly brilliant Wine Museum. Having thought we knew a thing or two about wine, we were immersed in this great museum enjoying the informative displays and ALL the interactive features. Probably the best wine museum ever it’s both fun and VERY important to know which wine your personality most resembles! :-) Then a tour of Taylor’s Port cellars learning how the different types of Port are made was a fascinating way to end the afternoon - only made better by a tasting of some of their best single estate and vintage ports, and some of their newer white and rosé creations, to really put into context everything we had learned. Having spent the morning exploring the old town, spending the afternoon here learning about the historical significance of Port to the very livelihood of the city, any trip to Porto without visiting ‘WOW’ would be incomplete.


We had a lovely day sheltering from the rain in the Wow museum complex; we chose a five museum ticket and went to the wine; cork; pink palace; Porto through the ages and the Bridge Museum. My husband liked the cork museum and we both enjoyed all the beautiful glasses in the Bridge museum. We had delicious sushi for lunch in Root & Vine. The museum has lifts, plenty of toilets and is really accessible once inside - I recommend a cab to the top then walking down the steps to get in if you want to avoid hills. Overall, a really great day out and definitely to be recommended.


When visiting Porto, we made sure to see Vila nova de Gaia and visit WOW! This place offers many attractions including wine experience, chocolate, planet cork, Porto region, bridge collection museum, pink palace. Our favorite was Taylor’s Port located right behind. A must see.
