The chocolate museum is a great modern building right on the Rhine river. About a 15min walk from main train station. Entrance is 9 euros and once inside you follow the history of chocolate and then see the modern machines how it is made and packaged today, One titchy chocolate piece when you enter and then 1 thin wafer dipped...

Fairly low entrance cost to what can only be described as a mediocre experience A modern clean building with nothing to stand out architecturally,Situated by the Rhine. Tells the story of the history of Cocoa growing and importation around the globe and its subsequent manufacture into Chocolate products. Spoilt by guides accompanying children's groups around the exhibits who seemed to... More

It was a nice place to spend a couple if hours there.

Warching this process was amazing. You get a change to try a type of their liquaded... More

A nice place to spend a wet afternoon in Cologne. A small museum with enough exhibits and interesting things to see for the low entrance fee of €9. There is also a great chocolate shop & cafe on site. A short walk through the city or one of the stops on the Cologne City bus tour. Fun for kids &... More

My boyfriend and I had a great time at the museum. It is interesting for both kids AND adults. You learn a lot about the history of chocolate, the making process, and different types. The museum has lots of machines and exhibits. The best part is the actual chocolate making assembly line, at the end of which you can have... More

Went with wife and expected to be bored out my noggin, however had a pleasant wee trip. Well laid out, clean and informative and despite not exactly being a chocoholic, have to say product is damned tasty. Different day out - give it a go

It's a nice place to visit, nothing special and there are many other nice things to do in Cologne. But if you're in Cologne for a longer period of time and you like chocolate or machinery, then this place is nice. You can see how chocolate is produced and taste some as well. The view of the river is nice... More

For a chocolate lover, this is a must place to visit in Cologne, hot recently made chocolate, fresh cookies bath in that hot recently made chocolate; a little bit of history and more chocolate. Nothing else to add!

I found this chocolate museum only average as it has nothing much to show. You will also have the option to order your type of chocolate. The entrance fee is bit expensive as compared to quality of museum. To get a view over the river and city climb the stairs from outside on the left of museum entry.
