I liked the museum. The first part which tells you about different types of plant used was rather boring to me but after that you get a glimpse of how a chocolate factory works and it was quite interesting to watch. I'd recommend you to go and see it if you have the time.

Really enjoyed this daytrip, a fun way to spend an afternoon and the chocolate is really yummy. I think the day is what you make it, it is a little pricey for 9 euros, but they do student discount, the museum is interesting and there is a very pretty view of the Rhein on the floor with lots of windows....

It was ok - the Lindt part was interesting but for the entrance free I expected more than 2 tiny samples. The have a very extensive chocolate shop which was cool.

Went here quite by accident were taking a river trip and saw it and went there when we got off. Was 9 euros per person to get in but was well worth it. All you ever wanted to know about chocolate and its production from bean to finished bar. Was really cool with a fountain where a worker dipped in... More

I went to this place with a roommate from my hostel. Now, I need to admit, I love chocolate, no, not just love, I may be a bit addicted to chocolate. And honestly I didn't know how chocolate was made. The museum is set up for families with children, so generally not for the 24 and 26 we were. Nontheless,... More

The museum gives a very detailed account of the history and manufacturing of its subject, but with sufficient interactive activities to keep children amused. It was a pleasant enough diversion for a couple of hours on a wet weekday, but it didn't quite have the simple chocolate appeal of Hershey World or Cadbury World. It was a refreshing change to...

Do You remember German song about chocolate? This Museum in Cologne is like grand Opera event compared to this lovely small song. Any way, You not need to like chocolate, to be interested how it progressed until our times, from Aztecs and other S.American nations traditions. It is lovely place, build with great respect to fantastic architecture.around.

I took 31 children, ages 8-12, here. Upon entering, the attendant said we were, "Too loud." There were just as many other people there, as we were, who were all talking normally, including our children. She had a little piece of chocolate that she was giving to everyone as they passed. After about 20 of the kids went through she... More

You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about chocolate from how the bean is grown, where, how its processed etc etc There's one section where you can watch the little tiny sample you get with your ticket being made. There's also another section where you can choose what extras you want in your chocolate from nuts to marshmallows... More
