If you like free samples, come here! The museum itself was smaller than I expected, but there was a lot of information and it was interesting. There is even a room near the end where you can watch (but not document) a few employees hand dipping chocolates. You must end the tour with a stop off at the gift shop,... More

I arrived a little too late to visit the museum, so I only went to the store. It's awesome! There are so many free samples of delicious chocolate. This is my new stop on the way to and from the border.

The chocolate is awesome in this place. Great selection. Never knew Saint Stephens was known for this. Bought plenty of chocolate after the visit. Close to the border crossing in Maine at Calais. You should visit.

You get all the chocolate you can (or want) to eat, with the paid admission. The museum is interesting in the history of the making of both hot chocolate (the drink) and chocolate (the food). They also have a little gift shop. There is also a part that tells the history of the chocolate company (this being a company museum).... More

Although we have been in the Ganong Chocolatier shop several times over the years, we had not taken the Chocolate Museum tour until recently, while showing our grandchildren around the province. We took both the heritage chocolate walk and the museum tour which were both interesting and informative. The kids loved the fact that most of the stations were generously... More

All of the tour guides are fantastic, and most are bilingual, which adds an element of inclusiveness to the experience. Highly recommend! Gabrielle was a sweetheart, Alie was lovely, Jenna was very funny, Sydney knows her facts very well, and Evan is a cutie.

Very interesting museum & knowledgeable staff. Due to strict quality control the actual museum was not available for viewing as it was years ago but it was well done & with free chocolate samples.
