A very cosy and fun place to visit while in Brixton. We got to experience making our own chocolate truffles while learning a lot about the history and benefits of chocolate.

This place is an embarrassment! It is not a museum, more like a junk shop or scrap heap. It's an overpriced chocolate scrap shop. On top of that, the manager is the rudest person I've ever met in my life. Simple questions asked, were responded...More

We took our 8 year old grand daughter to the Chocolate Museum in Brixton. She thoroughly enjoyed making some chocolates and licking the bowl afterwards. She also packed her chocolates and brought them home, Staff were absolutely brilliant. Thanks to both of them
