Choco-Story Paris - The Chocolate Museum

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Select your tour option when you make your booking. Then, make your own way to the Choco-Story Gourmet Chocolate Museum (Musée Gourmand du Chocolat) in central Paris. 

    Show your ticket and head inside to explore the three floors of exhibits, displays and children’s activities as you wish. Home to more than 1,000 original artifacts teamed with information panels in English, French and Spanish, the museum offers a captivating window into the evolution of chocolate through the ages.

    Stroll around the galleries, and trace the 4,000-year-old story of chocolate, from the discovery of the humble cocoa bean as an ingredient by the ancient Olmec peoples of South America. Learn how the Olmecs probably consumed chocolate as a drink from around 1,900 BC, and discover how it became a prized beverage of nobles, and part of the ceremonial rituals of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, before its use spread via trading routes to Europe and beyond.

    Enjoy the displays that illustrate the chocolate-making process through the centuries, and watch interactive demonstrations to see how contemporary chocolate is made enticingly shiny and smooth.

    Pause to taste different varieties of chocolate from around the world that have been made on site. Delight in the silkiness of Costa Rican chocolate, experience the melt-in-your-mouth fruitiness of Peruvian chocolate, savor the aromas of cocoa beans from Vanuatu and more. As you indulge, ease your calorie-counting conscience by learning about chocolate’s proven health-giving benefits!

    Then, if you’ve upgraded, sit down to a deliciously rich cup of hot chocolate, the perfect finale to your visit. And before leaving, head for the museum shop to browse the array of books, souvenirs and chocolate treats, and perhaps buy some goodies — edible or non-edible — as reminders of your time here.

    Your experience then finishes when you exit the museum.

    If you love chocolate this is a must. Definitely include the chocolate making session which allows you to make your own niche chocolate and a separate task to make chocolate bars. Both were great fun! And the chocolate used was very tasty. The rest of...More

    Hi Heather, Thank you for your comment. I'm really sorry you felt offended by, I'm guessing, the commercials from a famous french brand called Banania (it's like Hershey's in UK/US). I understand you don't know this brand and its history is mainly in France and...More

    It was quite interesting - the best bit was the demonstration, and being able to eat the chocolate. But I'm glad we didn't have to pay for it as it was included on our Paris Pass.
