Located on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and opened this year, the Rosé Museum, er, "Mansion" is actually more substantive that some of the comparative offers out there.
For one, you actually get the equivalent of two glasses of wine throughout the self-paced tour. There are eight tastings available, with wines sourced from around the world. There is also a lot of information readily available at each station, offering basic knowledge and tips about different varietals, wine regions, and more.
The Rosé Mansion might also seem like a magnet for bachelorette and birthday parties, and to some extent, that is an accurate assessment. But it's easy to ignore other groups and mosey along at your own pace. The staff is cheerful and happy to chat and answer questions when pouring your tastings.
There are a few interactive spaces, including a playground-esque ball pit resembling champagne bubbles, a play on scratch-and-sniff walls with aromas of different wine notes, and a station where you can fill out a questionnaire discerning your palette and you'll be rewarded with a glass of sparkling rosé that should please your taste buds.
Tickets for the Rosé Mansion, however, are not cheap. General admission costs $45, but there is a "happy hour" rate for $35 on weekdays before 4:30PM. Unlike when the Museum of Ice Cream opened in New York City two summers back, it's not that hard to work with the availability schedule and get tickets when you want them—so long as you plan at least a few days in advance.
If you can swing this, definitely go for the happy hour price. While you get the equivalent of two glasses of wine throughout the tasting (and yes, a pin and a plastic cup that says "Rosé Mansion"), if you know anything at all about wine already, you're not going to learn much. You're simply going for the Instagram backgrounds and "experience," which frankly, isn't worth $45.
