Informative and fun to find out more of the history of what is in NB. If you love chocolate than you will like this place. Lots of history and very interesting. A bit expensive to get in but worth it.

Here is a secret: this place has great chocolate. And, you get as much as you want in two batches, a sampler at the front and a sampler at the back. Figuring the admission cost, it is easy to eat the value of the entry!. The museum covers the corporate history. The old movies are worth watching. A lot of... More

We were on a time schedule so we didn't have time to go into the museum but we certainly did some serious chocolate shopping in the store. All over that part of Canada everyone raves about the chocolates - the Pal-o-Mine bar is a favorite everywhere! I bought gifts galore and was pleased that there were so many samples to... More

Like a kid in a chocolate shop -- The museum was closed - I guess it's seasonal? I was there over Christmas break so I was disappointed that it wasn't open. The store was a fun stop though. Lot's of fun choices. I look forward to visiting in the summer when the museum is open sometime..

Thank you for stopping by The Chocolate Museum! We do close each year in December, January and February, but tours for groups of all sizes can be booked in advance by appointment during these months. We're sorry we missed you this time, and hope to see you at another time this year! We officially open for the season on Saturday,... More

A fun stop in St. Stephen...Learn how the chocolate is made from start to finish. The scent of chocolate is magnificent and there is a shop to purchase chocolates on your way out. I always buy several boxes for my colleagues, which they now expect, as I travel to New Brunswick often. I believe they make sugar free chocolates as... More

Who doesn't enjoy chocolate? It was great to learn the history of a New Brunswick company and how their products are made. If you time it right and go during the annual chocolate festival, there are factory tours too!!

Thank you for visiting The Chocolate Museum! We are glad you enjoyed your trip. Unfortunately, tours of the actual Ganong factory haven't been available for seven years, even during the festival, due to increased health and safety regulations. However, during the Festival we offer a special event where we bring the Ganong employees to our guests and allow them to... More

This was a must-do on our vacation through St Stephens into Maine. Although small, the museum is worth the cost of admission. You have the choice of a self-guided or guided tour (< 1hr). Learn about the history of chocolate and how chocolates are made but better than that...there are trays with mounds of "help yourself" chocolates at the entrance... More

Great stop on the way South! Our family (13, 17, and 20 year olds plus parents) learned a lot about the Ganong family, ate great chocolate and spent the last of our Canadian money on delicious candy that we gave as hits to friends
