Don't bother trying to visit this museum. You can drive by and see the magnificent Romanesque castle that houses the museum. But it's closed. The website doesn't tell you, and so countless people make the effort to drive to the museum, only to find the doors are closed. They don't even give potential visitors the courtesy of a sign on the door.

The Tourist Information centre sent us here to find the start of the Hildebrande Trail to the abbey. We didn't find the trail and the castle was shut.
Looking into it a bit further we discovered that the castle is due to re-open in 2020. The only available information stated that it would re-open 'with a new concept' however I have no idea what this means. I'm guessing that it won't include wine-tasting any more but hopefully it will still include a museum.
You can still see a lot of the castle from the outside. One of the first medieval stone castles, it was built as a fortress, sitting right on the banks of the Rhine. You can see that it was built with an eye to practicality rather than beauty. It definitely has a solid and impenetrable look about it.
It was owned by the Archbishops of Mainz for almost 900 years, from the beginning of the 10th century right up to the 19th. At one stage in 1100s, the fortress was converted into a castle residence. Its days as a fortress served it well, making it a particularly strong building and easy to defend. The only attack that made a dent in the castle was 1640 when the Duke of Longueville managed to damage one section.
There is a pretty gardens that is being maintained beside the castle. Set back, a little behind it, you can see the Boosenburg Castle tower, a Romanesque fortified tower. It is 38 metres high, making it Rudesheim’s tallest building. You can't enter this part either as it is privately owned.
Walk up behind the castle and there is a small vineyard which makes a nice photo as you look back towards the Rhine.

Having read other reviews about the Wine Museum not being open, we checked their website before driving down to the museum, and arrived at 1:00 pm on a Saturday. The museum and castle were closed and looked abandoned, with padlocks on the gates and a general air of neglect except for the flower beds and grape vines. Trip Advisor should consider moving their positive rating down given that almost every review stated the place was closed.

Unfortunately we arrived after it closed, but we were able to check out the grounds and view the castle. The place is conveniently located right off the Rhine River and close to city center. It would have been nice to enter the building to learn more of its history.

My wife and I went hoping to see the museum and the interior of the castle; We were only able to walk around the outside as the museum was closed mid-day on a Friday. Maybe the proprietor had gone to lunch or something. Regardless, the grounds were pleasant, it was quiet and there were some old wine making apparatuses and the castle exterior to take pictures of. Spent about 10 minutes there; Wasn't really worth the walk, wish it had been open.

Inexpensive self-guided tour inside the castle structure, with many interesting wine related artifiacts. You can also wander the grounds and view some free displays of old wine presses, etc.

We were in town when this museum was closed but the gate was opened so we entered the garden and outdoor display area. No one else was around so we wandered around the grounds to see things on display and read the signs.
There was a bench outside so we sat and enjoyed the weather and flowers.
It seems like this would be a good place to visit based on reviews and TripAdvisor rating; they even had a TripAdvisor seal.
We had a good time looking around and appreciated the peacefulness of the garden area.

Having brought friends to Germany for the first time to Rudesheim to enjoy the weinfest, they said they would like to learn a bit of the history behind the local wine production. They found the museum really interesting and the individual audio guide lets you go at your own pace. Good views over the river from the terrace at the top of the building too. Really good value for €5.
