It's a store with a room dedicated to the story and informations about the king of the sweets, chocolate. You can learn everything about chocolate eating some chocolate bought in the shop or sipping some choco-drink taken from the nearby cafè.

I am a chocoholic, and have been to any number of lectures on chocolate - this was by far the best I have been to. Doing the Bean to Bar workshop is definitely worth the time, and it is a lot of fun.

SO many delicious options, including the flavoured chocolate bars and liquors & cacao tea. Will hopefully be going back to take a chocolate making class.

We went here in April 2014 and loved it! The place was smaller than we expected but the chocolate was sooo good! The staff is very helpful and observant and let you try samples! Also, be sure to drink some coffee or hot chocolate from their bar - they have the most beautiful garden where you can sit. Loved it... More

I was a little apprehensive going alone with a group of families I didn't know but I was happily surprised. Of all the attractions in Antigua, this one was the most fun for me. I'm a regular visitor to Antigua and have done pretty much everything, always on my own, which can be awkward at times. The ChocoMuseo, was so... More

Yo get to know a lot of new facts how important chololate was for the Mayas. Around the museum you can find wonderful stores. Not too expensive.

An absolute must for anyone who comes to Antigua. Pablo, a very fun and enthusiastic chocolatier, took us through from 4000BC to Mr Nestle. Along with the fascinating history we roasted, ground, mixed, drank, and eat our own chocolate. 100% brilliant. Thank you Pablo and the ChocoMuseo team.

Sweet little museum with yummy gifts to purchase! My daughter had gotten me the chocolate hand cream- yummy with NO calories. Cute courtyard & shops if you go through the cafe.

Wow. My daughter, the graduate from chef school and working in the computer industry, absolutely loved it. And so did my grandson. I spent my time with a cup of coffee and wandering through their little museum.

I learned so much! It is perfect for everyone: young, old, kids, families. Even if you don't like chocolate - you will learn a lot and probably find the cacao beverages of the different cultures tasty! Pablo was the best instructor. Plus - you get to take homemade chocolate home!
