Finally there’s a theme park that adults will actually want to visit. La Cité du Vin (the City of Wine) in Bordeaux will be France’s newest wine-centric attraction.

After almost seven years of construction and a cost of $91 million, the interactive museum is set to open on June 1. Designed by Parisian architects XTU and English designers Casson Mann to mimic wine swirling in a glass, the destination is aiming to welcome close to 450,000 visitors every year, CNBC reports.

Inside the impressive structure you’ll find nearly 20 themed areas including galleries, installations, a simulated boat ride and tasting stations. The space also holds a 250-seat auditorium, and on the top floor you can enjoy a 360-degree view of Bordeaux’s famed wine country while standing beneath a chandelier made of thousands of wine bottles.

Even kids are invited along to discover a range of grape juices selected especially for them.
