Enjoy discovering the world of Parmesan Cheese, one of the most famous Italian cheese.

The museum is located just outside the city of Parma. Parmigiano-Reggiano (also known as Parmesan cheese) is a typical product of Made in Italy. It is a hard granular cheese with a long and natural maturation. It’s a highly concentrated cheese and contains only 30% water and 70% nutrients. Parmigiano-Reggiano is produced exclusively in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and parts of the provinces of Mantua and Bologna, on the plains, hills and mountains enclosed between the rivers Po and Reno. 

The material displayed at the museum was collected from all 5 provinces where Parmigiano-Reggiano is produced.  The objects on display can be placed in a time frame between the second half of the XIX century and the first half of the XX century. All objects necessary for the transformation of milk are present in the oldest part of the building, whereas in the newer part of the building are those elements of the production process which do not involve transformation. Here we can find the maturing process, marketing and sales, as well as information about use of the cheese in gastronomy and its history.

Do not miss the opportunity to learn about this famous Italian cheese. The ticket includes cheese tasting.

Next to the cheese plants, in more recent buildings you can find the Reception, a café and the Museum Shop where it is possible to buy Parmigiano-Reggiano, the tasting kit and publications, posters, cards and themed kitchen objects.

Visit an artisan culatello producer in Emilia-Romagna, and learn how the king of the cured meat is produced. You’ll learn about the origins of the Italian ham, the curing that is done by hand, and the aging process that gives the meat its robust flavor. Finish with a lunch of local delicacies, wine, and culatello, of course. Transport from Parma is not included.

Ask an Italian meat lover to name a favorite cold cut and the response is likely to be “culatello.” Make your own way to the village of Colorno where the beloved meat is produced, roughly 20 minutes from Parma, to visit an artisan producer. 
During your 3-hour tour, you’ll learn how the origin of the meat is guaranteed, sourced from a strip of land that runs through several Emilia-Romagna villages. The culatello, which translates as “little backside,” is seasoned, placed in a pig’s bladder, and strung up for nearly 12 months in farms dotted around the Bassa Parmense.
The region is close to the Po River, and many say that its moisture-rich air reacts with the humidity of the old cellars to give the meat its flavour. 
Visit the aging cellars where the meat is hung, and then finish with a traditional lunch of culatello, local snacks, and wine.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
