|Thousands of wheels of Gruyère cheese.|
Daily cheesemaking demonstrations take place from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and again from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. and although this activity was high on our list of priorities in Switzerland, we unfortunately arrived too late in the afternoon for a tour after missing our train from the nearby chocolate factory in Broc. We did spend some time browsing in the lobby where there are old cheesemaking artifacts and various interesting production facts displayed.
La Maison du Gruyère also has a restaurant with a menu of fondue (of course!), soup, ham, and meringues.

The gift shop is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the summer, and from 9:00 to 6:00 p.m. from October through May.
Tours of La Maison du Gruyère Cheese Dairy are 7 Swiss francs for adults, 12 francs for a family of four with kids under 12, and 6 francs for students.
