This is a sweet museum, with two levels in a mansion, it’s not an overwhelming experience. Lots of interesting things to see. There were some materials in English, for which we were grateful. We hope they’ll consider providing an audio guide in the future to unlock some of the fascinating history and descriptive materials.
We also wish they’d provide a tasting experience. There are lots of chocolates for sale in their store and a take out restaurant with a small seating area. The line was very long and slow so we decided to go elsewhere.

A cozy, small museum. You can see interesting stuff about cacao and chocolate making. After your museum tour, spend some time at the museum's café where you can sample some different types of chocolate along with a fine cup of coffee.

I visited this chocolate museum and shop five years ago and was pleased to see that some of the exhibits change and there is always something new to taste or experience. On our visit February 1, 2020, in addition to the tour of the various rooms (galleries), we participated in a chocolate tasting, and in a demonstration of the metate. We of course, also bought a selection of MUCHO Chocolate treats to take home with us. A must for all chocolate lovers.

I love museums but this one really disappoints. All displays seem dated, the part about chocolate accesories is plain superficial (just a few jugs and cups) and most of the (scanty) descriptions are only in Spanish. Seems more like an add-on to the cafe which is downstairs. And all of that for the price of a decent art gallery ticket.

A good place to pop in if it’s raining to spend 45 minutes. The room covered in chocolate is pretty cool and smells delightful. There is a lot of information here about chocolate’s origins but it isn’t presented in a very interesting light. Also espanol is a must.

Now the cafe is awesome. Great chocolate and drinks. Get the cold chocolate mixed with horchata. Also the sugar skulls are to die for.

After ten days in CDMX, we tried this museum due to relatively good ratings. It's essentially five rooms packed with stuff around chocolate. Although moatly translated to English, I didn't undersgand what they want to say with the museum. No description of recipes, manufacturing or differences. It's really not worth the price. I read somewhere hat a youtube video would be more interesting, which is absolutely true.

We kind of stumbled on this little museum, and although it's very small, the building is really cool and our tour guide was so sweet and enthusiastic. It's interesting to learn about the history of chocolate, sample some cacao beans and then visit the shop and cafe at the end. It's not going to be like some of the larger museums, but a nice little stop if you're looking for something low-key.

An afternoon stroll to the chocolate museum with imagination running wild of all things chocolate. Unfortunately the museum did not live up to expectations. We were greeted by a young person who spoke very little English and could barely give us directions of which way to go. Very little of the information was dual language. It was mainly Spanish/ Mexican. The displays were very tired and dated and the whole experience was over in about an hour. And we took our time ! Overall it was overpriced and not a good experience. We could learn very little from this apart from we need to learn Spanish.

Visited with a group of friends in October.
Was expecting the museum to be more interactive. Was rather boring and not really what I think a Chocolate museum should be.
Tried a chocolate Tamale and hot Chocolate on milk. Was Nice.

A selection of handmade chocolates for sale.

A somewhat overpriced museum dedicated to the history of chocolate. It’s small but well put together, very modern. I was waling through solo and didn't see any tours.
The museum outlines the rich history of chocolate in mexico, how chocolate was prized by the Spanish as well as the global trade.

There are excerpts from botanical books, stamps celebrating chocolate, historical artwork and photographs all about chocolate. There are a selection of fossils associated with the chocolate trade. The museum even has vintage chocolate posters, chocolate moulds and hot chocolate pots.

The museum hosts chocolate sculptures and artwork. The evolution of technology is well represented as well as the science around flavouring.

But probably the best part, besides the smell of chocolate everywhere, is the gift shop. Salted chocolate and chilli chocolate! You don’t need to go through the museum to visit the store.

Overall i was disappointed with the size. I may have spent an hour maximum here, and while the collection is interesting, it's not particularly large. It pales in comparison to the Anthropology Museum or Templo Mayor. The chocolate is delicious.
