This is a neat little place; the show you all the process of chocolate, from cacao bean to the final product. They sell all kinds of chocolate bars made and wrap by hand every day, and all kinds of chocolate products. If you are a chocolate lover, I highly recommend this place.

This was such a fun experience! Our instructor was amazing and made us laugh. She explained the process of how the cocoa bean becomes chocolate. Everything is made in house with the best ingredients. We made 12 truffles and 12 chocolate candies that we were able to take home. So fun and delicious!

Maybe worth to go to do your won chocolate course. Other than that, is just a good chocolate shop with a cafeteria.

We had a few hours to kill & read about this place in a guide book so gave it a go. We were pleasantly surprised, we had a few hours of informative & enjoyable chocolate making. We decided to do the chocolate workshop which is worth the money & you get to keep the chocolates you make at the end... More

Wonderful chocolate that makes great souvenirs. I brought home multiple bars and people loved them. Prices are reasonable and staff is knowledgable and eager to share information. This is a must stop if you are in Lima.

My boyfriend and I did the 3-hour chocolate making workshop on our first day in Lima. We had a great time! It was an informative and delicious experience, and we got to make and try so many different kinds of chocolate. This is definitely one of my favourite memories from our trip to Peru.

Staff does work hard to "teach" you something about chocolate harvesting & manufacturing. Still, they are there to sell products. However, these "choco" products can rarely be found elsewhere, I gladly gave them my money.

We did the 45 main chocolate making workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it. Gonzales, our chocolate guide was great. Good english and sense of humor. All the staff were very friendly. Make sure you try the chocolate tea and liqueurs. Will be visiting the shop in Cusco as well.

Not really a museum, but it was a very interesting stop. The "guide" was very friendly and they all spoke English. We did get a good overview of how chocolate was made, but it really is a restaurant and store. Nevertheless, it was a great stop to test put some chocolate based products, have a some tea and hot chocolate... More

If you are looking for an actual museum this isn't the place, if you want to learn a little about chocolate and how it is made and then perhaps make some yourself and try some really delicious chocolate this is a great spot for all those things.
