Good points: - The workshop in Lima was quiet (5 people) compared to the busy workshops we saw happening in Cusco - The drinks were tasty - It is interesting to learn about chocolate production - Organic and fairtrade products Bad points: - The workshop does not let you get involved in many stages of the chocolate making. Making drinks... More

Extensive coverage on all aspects of the plant including sample leaves. There are also some surprising displays

it's not a museum, it's a shop with a small area dedicated to the history of chocolate, the staff is very friendly, they gave you for free a cup cocoa tea, and you get to know better the chocolate process, they also have workshops so you can lern to make you own chocolate. try the hot Mayan chocolate, it's spicy...

definitely one of my favorite parts of the trip (they also have one we went to in cusco). you can take classes and learn how to make chocolates that you can come back a day later and take them home. the chocolate was really good!

They greet you with free cocoa tea! so yummy and give you a tour of the little museum. There are classes available to learn how to make chocolate - but we just decided to eat a ton of chocolate at the café. Delicious!

Maybe it is a good experience for the kids to go and do the couple of hours worth of chocolate making project(for a good fee!). But I promise you that it does not have anything more to offer.

We took a chocolate making class and it was quite nice. The instructor gave thorough explanations of everything and seemed quite knowledgeable. (Although I don't really recommend taking a bite of the raw cocoa beans--sooo bitter). It was a great experience and the tea they make from cocoa bean husks is fantastic.

We first found the Choco Museo location in Cusco, and enjoyed the samples. Then we discovered the Lima location, and were impressed with the samples, the tour, and the display that taught about the cacao trees, flowers, and the chocolate making process. Just when we thought we'd seen it all, we found the Choco Museo in the Barranco district. This... More

Lots of fun but probably better if you had kids with you. Wouldn't see it as a destination place but great for a short visit if you are in the area.
