Who doesn't love chocolate? The workshops are professional and well organized. Lots of added value and you can take the products you make home afterwards.

The chocolate class was fun, but it's not really a "chocolate making" class. It's more of melting and pouring into molds. But you learn a lot about how chocolate is made, and get to eat some too.

We had lots of fun making our own chocolate in heaps of different flaours. It was very informative and we learnt the full process from plant to bar. It has a little shop with different chocolate products.

After checking out the main attractions around Cusco, we decided to check out the chocolate museum after reading the positive reviews. They have a small museum with the history of chocolate and the option to take 2 glasses - "bean to bar" and "truffle making". We did the bean to bar class and we very happy with our decision. The...

A great find, we went in for a wander and ended up having lunch overlooking the square below and staying for the chocolate workshop. Great fun and only 5 in our group but some are much larger. Gladys was really patient and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here

We didn't realize until later that the ChocoMuseo is a chain. You can find more locations in Lima as well. The prices are relatively high but the chocolate varieties vary greatly. I wish that we had had more time to take once of the chocolate making classes.

If you have time to kill and want to relax for a bit, then the brief 10 minute explanation on where chocolate comes from and chocolate making class is a nice diversion. But, Cusco has so much more to offer than this. You can find shops like this in just about any city. That said, my tween ager loved it,... More

Dear Rebecca R First of all I would like to thank you for your visit and comment on Tripadvisor. However I am afraid that you kind of missed our didactic concept. Actually, ChocoMuseo is a small & free museum which offers their visitors a way to explore the chocolate making process themselves. In general, we propose a small guided tour... More

Our family really enjoyed this museum/store. It would have been fun to participate in a chocolate making workshop if we had more time. Loved the chocolate we purchased in the store.

We explored the (free!) informational museum, enjoyed some chocolate tea over looking the square. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We didn't have a chance to do a class, however the classes were full and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. It's worth a stop in!
