We were walking by and the sweet aroma caught our attention. I hadn't realized that the shop was a museum of sorts as well! The guide was very friendly and funny and offered us countless chocolate, jam and liquor samples as well as a little history thrown in as well. The museum is free, so it's completely worth it :)

Great way to spend time in Cusco when you're not shopping - making and tasting chocolate, whilst learning about the history of cacao. Definitely a highlight and 10% off in the shop after the chocolate making meant some extra weight into the rucksack - Christmas presents(honest)

We had one day in Cusco to acclimatise before Machu Picchu and stumbled across the chocolate museum. We ended up doing the workshop which is only 70 soles per person and so worth it! It´s around 2 hours long and we got to make different chocolate drinks and our own chocolate selection to take home. Our instructor Pedro was amazing... More

Fun little stop during our travels, we stumbled upon this place and learned a lot about chocolate, and got lots of free samples!

When you visit Cusco, put this place on your list! unlike other museums, there is not an entrance fee. There are 3 phases to the the tour; one guided and the other 2 on your own. For the first phase, a staff member will greet you and tell you all about the process of making chocolate. The next phase is... More

If you like chocolate then this is your place. You can just walk in from the street and you'll have great fun. For free you'll get a tour around in the museum, explaining more how it is produced, where it is going, etc.... But after that the fun begins. You can try different kinds of chocolate, and drinks made with... More

We did the tour of the ChocoMuseo and participated in the making of chocolate. We realized very quickly that it is much more difficult to make the chocolate than to eat it. Our guide made it a fun experience and at the end we were able to make out own chocolates from various different molds and take them home with... More

The museum/chocolateria/shop and event space in Miraflores, Lima is very nicely and appropriately decorated, and the staff is helpful and nice. Above all, for a chocolate lover like me, it is Willy Wonka's factory! Chocolate exists in every possible different types, texture, mix, presentation. ...a must see visit if you are a chocofan!

We arranged to have a private demonstration and had a great deal of fun. Our guide showed us how the whole process from bean to chocolate. In the end, we made our own chocolates from the paste we had made. (They weren't very good, but the demonstration was great.) We got our hands dirty with cocoa powder, cocoa paste and... More

I am a chocoholic and this was certainly the spot for me! The Choco Museum is located on the 2nd floor, in a building off a side street from the main square in Cuzco. Although difficult to find, the ChocoMuseum is worth the trip. Once inside, you pay $2 to enter the "museum" portion of the store. There are live... More
