Had this place on my to see lost for a long time, so took my family to Cologne and did so. Started out on the cafe for some chocolate treats. Only had to wait a short while before we were seated. Unfortunately, people where edgy because of the wait and process of cleaning every table thoroughly after each use. Amazingly enough, the most rude and edgy people where elderly. Jumping the line and demanding the staff that they would be seated. Very sad behaviour. Fortunately, we had a nice hot chocolate and the pastries were great. We were ready to visit the museum! Due to COVID19, the glass house was closed. But other than that the museum is open. Interesting exhibits and really cool to see an actual chocolate production line from up close. Our one year old loves the robot arm and other machinery. Normally you would be allowed to press a button and get chocolates from the conveyor belt. Now you get it when you enter and leave. Also, the chocolate fountain is ‘closed’. Not really a nuisance, I find personally. There was more to see than we thought. Everything perfectly accessible with a buggy. The view over the Rhine is very nice and a bonus. All in all a very nice afternoon!

It is very nice and the chocolate was awesome. We did not realize how long it would take so make sure to plan on around 2 hours to see everything. It was very crowded so it took longer to see everything.

Short and boring. A lot of interesting things not possible due to the current pandemic. Not worth the price anymore. Shows a brief history of chocolate and how it is made. Do not recommend. Smells amazing though.

Thank you for your feedback. Due to the current distance and hygiene regulations, there are of course small restrictions to protect our visitors and employees. We also miss trying the chocolate at the chocolate fountain. Of course, we try to offer our visitors a chocolaty experience at all times. We hope for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you again. Greetings from the Chocolate Museum

My family and I visited here during our stay in Cologne. Overall it was much better than I had expected. Gives you the big picture of the origins of cocoa and the main locations worldwide today for farming, though to the manufacturing process which was very nice to see. Further on in the museum is a very good quality exhibit of the origins of cocoa in Mesoamérica (middle America). We spent about 90 minutes there. Well worth it.
