“Very good museum, not good quality chocolates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Bariloche has excellent chocolates, but this are not good. We 've tasted great flavours and qualities in Mamushka, Torres, Rapanui, and some others but Fenoglio quality is bad. The museum is quite interesting if it is raining and you don't know what else to do ( like it happened to us, but then we discovered many other things as we learned that only 15 minutes far from Bariloche, it never rains! ).

“Good option if you have time to kill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

It's interesting to know the history of chocolate. Suitable for adults and kids over 10-12 who'd enjoy the narration, which can get a bit heavy at times. It's good that they give you chocolate and you can see the workers making the chocolate thru a glass.

“Don't waste your time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

It is far from city center, you need to walk about 30 min to get there, and the people there are really wierd. I was the only one at the museum when they told me there is only tour in Spanish. I told I can understand if they talk slowly, but they responded by saying that they need to finish the tour in 40 min. and that other people could be affected. I took the tour, thinking they will be flexible, since there was no one else except for me. I still don't undertsnad why the guide talked so fast like a speed motor and didn't consider my request as foreigner. In any how, the museum is pretty boring, they don't show any machines working or so, just the history of the Cacao...
Don't waste your time here.

“Not Willy Wonka”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011 via mobile

The museum is not that big and you only get a glimpse of the factory. My 8 year old was bored. The chocolate is good however. It was ok for our rainy day.
