We spent about 30 minutes here and purchased a good deal of absolutely delicious dark peruvian dark chocolate. I can't say there is much of a museum here but the staff was incredibly friendly and gave us lots of samples of chocolate in different forms. Still fun and great place to shop for some great Peruvian chocolate.

This was in Mira Flores district. I had really no clue how chocolate was made. You can go on a quick tour and look at their cool chocolate products

I was in Peru for vacation looking for things to do. This was not far from one of the hotels I stayed at so I decided to try it out. It was a good time. I recommend it to anyone that likes to do things like cooking classes etc.

Great few hours learning about chocolate then making it. You get to try chocolate tea, which was amazing. Hot water that tastes of chocolate, great! You get to choose what type of chocolate and what you put in it and then which mould to use. All along trying different chocolate. Lovely little gift shop to purchase bits in as well.

My family and I took their 2-hour chocolate workshop last week and loved it! This isn't just about making chocolates, it's a whole history starting with how the cacao beans grow to making the chocolate itself. It was really interesting roasting the beans the old fashioned way and learning how many different chocolate drinks you could make from them. And... More

Comments based on the Cusco branch. Very much geared for tourists, the Museum is essentially a large gift shop with two upstairs 'exhibitions', a kitchen for the chocolate workshops (costing around s/ 70, no student discount), and a cafe selling more chocolate-y goodness. It's entirely free to enter. The staff receive you instantly, and give you little tasters of cocoa... More
