We really enjoyed the chocolate museum! The guided tour takes about an hour, which we didn't have, so the guide customized a shorter version for us. We found the history very interesting - such a unique Canadian story. The displays are set up beautifully. The family spent a lot of time playing with the wooden chocolate puzzle and timing how...

This is a very well done attraction. The guides have an interesting spiel. There are lots of things for the kids. The best part is the unlimited chocolate you get to eat while you are there. It is basically the only reason to ever visit St. Stephen.

I thought this may be a little boring, but I was wrong. Totally enjoyed the tour which included unlimited chocolate samples throughout. A couple of good videos that explained how Ganong chocolates began and how the factory was run way back when.interesting to see how it has evolved today and the family that still runs it. Got to see a... More

I paid $10 to enter only to find out they just have five different types of chocolate samples available throughout. Further, chocolate making isn't done in Saturdays so really not much to look at unless you want to eat a ton of the same type of chocolate - great it you like those particular ones, not so if you don't.

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
