Very disappointed experience. Wasn't offered a choice, they brought us cold chocolate drink (the taste was horrible could not drink it) and then charged us 10 cuc each for it which is over £10!! No menu, no prices. Be careful.

We were scammed here - buying chocolate at a high price and then finding later that a box was given to us completely empty. This was no mistake. Even without this bad experience, as far away from a museum experience as one can get. Not...More

Not really a museum but cool, interesting and delicious. Visit and take time to read the brochure and look around the cafe. I recommend having it served cold.

The Choco Museo is really a cafe more than a museum. The drinking chocolate is incredible. I also was able to purchase lots of gifts to bring home. Among the best chocolate I have ever tasted and worth an afternoon visit.

There was not much of a museum, but it was more of a nice coffee shop. The limited chocolate displays were nice. The cold chocolate drink was very nice.

A collection of chocolate-related items in lovely antique cabinets does not a museum make. I rated this 3 stars because some might expect a larger display. What is here is a small cafe which served us really delicious cold chocolate drinks, sumptuously rich, for 3...More

We wanted to try this place as it was recommended. With entering the museo the server cut us off. The showcase filled with all the plates were dirty. When looking at the chocolate making machine the employee sneezed in his hand and started preparing the...More

Easily located near Plaza Vieja however only offering a cold chocolate drink (very reasonable at 1CUC) however I was expecting to purchase some hand made chocolates also. Friendly staff and a busy establishment.

Really not a museum, but they do have great chocolate bars! We wish we had bought more, as they were really tasty. Like much of Havana, not service oriented - but the product was quite good.

All there was to see was posters no demonstrations, and a small selection for sale in the attached shop, but very expensive

No, it is not a museum. Just a few posters around the walls and some chocolate being mixed and then put into moulds. All the drinks are chocolate based and I thought good, made a change from alcohol and coffee.
