This was one of the places I was most looking forward to in Cologne and im afraid I was pretty disappointed. Entry to the museum costs €9 which was pretty overpriced in my opinion. The most interesting part was the factory portion where you can see small chocolates being produced and packaged, and the rest of the museum is focused... More

I personally don't like chocolate, but this museum has a lot to offer. History (even artifacts from South America and old European stuff related to cacao and chocolate), how chocolate evolved including advertisement (They have the probably biggest selection of old vending machines- themed and beautiful!), how cacao is grown, harvested and used…. very informative even for non-chocolate-lovers

Great place to take the Family. YOu will learn lots about Choclate. Easily you can spent 2-3 hours in there. Worth the price. Make sure to create your own chocolate bar, not included in price.

lots of chocolate for sure, but my, it had to be the busiest place we visited on our whole trip. The prices were a tad high , when We could get the same things for less in local shops.

Had a day in Cologne and thought we would kill a bit of time here. We didn't realise that time wouldn't be the only thing killed, because the fun died pretty early on in. For €9 per person, it was incredibly disappointing. Boring exhibits about the history of cacao trade. "Interactive" exhibits where you press buttons only to illuminate the... More

The museum is a very good look at how the chocolate is made.and chocolate through history. There is a little free sample as well. The cafe sells lovely hot chocolate but the service is terrible. We sat for 40 minutes for our lunch, several wait staff gossiping and not serving and watched as our lunch sat on the front bench... More

There is a little rainforest downstairs were you can see how cocoa is grown, And then gradually as you go through the Mueseum you... More
