A well-executed study of a wonderful subject. Set in an old home, the museum has the history, the pictures, the smells...and when you are done, the tastes. One guide had English.

If you expect a museum, you will only find some pictures. They mainly serve chocolate drinks. Sometimes long waiting row to get in

It is awesome, between the cuban coffee and this hot chocolate is to die for. Old molds on how to do the chocolate and a lot of history.

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.
