This is really an opportunity to sell chocolate to tourists. I did find an excellent tin magnet, purchased some so-so chocolates. Not worth the time.

Great stories, but even better: samples!! The displays are well thought out and the information interesting. But the tastes were the best!

This museum shows history and the process of coco production as displays and in the actual production line. Very educational. You will get small piece of chocolate when you buy a ticket. Two adults and a child was euro 24.50.

Out of all the exhibits, I only enjoyed the part where Lindt mini chocolate bars are made. They do gave out wafer biscuits dipped in molten chocolate. Some one could be thrilled by it, not me.

Well worth a visit! We enjoyed the museum element but the factory tour was very good too, and the tasting opportunity also yummy. Would be nice if you could create your chocolate bar first and then go round the museum so you don't have to wait 35 minutes (we didn't). Only downside is that there's not many places to sit...

A bit dull, it has to be said, with most of this taking the form of a self-tour round the exhibits. You get one small sample of molten chocolate on a wafer but that's where the fun ends! If you're interested in the politics, religion and history of chocolate, however, this is for you.

If you don't know anything of chocolate, not even the basics, then it could be interesting. Otherwise just bring your kids, don't expect too much.

The Chocolate Museum sits on the banks of the river. The location is beautiful. The museum itself is great and full of information, from the history of chocolate farming to how chocolate is made. The adjacent café is excellent and the shops has wide range of chocolate on offer.
