The museum discourse consists of two deeply linked aspects. For this reason, on the itinerary, the visitor will be able to learn about the cheese-making processes, originally focused on the three main stages of the product: since it “is” milk, passing through the subsequent transformation into curd and the natural cheese-making.

And also, at different points in the show, you can learn about the Chillón family history from their origins as cheesemakers at the end of the 19th century to the present day.
