I am unsure of what I had expected. But just a few poster boards with some interesting information was not enough to satisfy my curiosity about the production of chocolate. This was basically just a shop.

They have a course in chocolate making. A bit expensive,$22.but worth it. The products they sell are unique and delicious. The museum is right there,so one can enjoy both at the same time. I recommend it highly.

Don't think of this chocolate at Cadbury's or Hershey's, this is the proper stuff, quite grainy, deeply rich, the most satisfying chocolate i have ever eaten. We had to make three trips to replenish take-home stocks as we kept eating it.

This is more of a retail operation then a Museo. Little to learn about Chocolate other then to buy some overpriced and bad tasting Choco products.

Your comment "little to learn" about chocolate baffles me. ChocoMuseo contains comprises three didactic components - history of cacao and chocolate, cultivation of cacao, and fabrication of chocolate. The museum is free and visitors can learn all about the foregoing in as much depth as the visitor chooses. I´m sorry you did not like the chocolate - we make it... More

We stopped into the ChocoMuseo which was well worth it. Demonstrations, free tastings and lots of products so it ticked all the boxes.

We took the class with Kenny, and oh what fun we had! The chocolate is some of the best I've ever had. It is a must if you are spending a day in Granada!

We had great fun learning about how chocolate is made. We started roasting beans, and ended with making a variety of chocolate drinks and our own bars of chocolate. Educational and fun! Take a few minutes to look around the beautiful hotel in which this establishment is located.

The museum has an very interesting display of information about chocolate production around the world with descriptions in English and helpful pictures. There is also a cafe surrounding a mini cacao forest located behind the entrance area.When I saw that a chocolate making class was offered I jumped at the chance. This class far surpassed expectations. Ismael was the teacher,... More
