We bought the walk through package and enjoyed learning about chocolate as well as getting lots of free samples from around the city.

Its all about chocolate; the instruments, harvest, transport, cultivation through the centuries and production techniques. Its (sometimes) interesting but not captive, a little bit old-school presentation and information. Very narrow pathways, many cracking floors in an old home setting. One is really looking for the fire escapes or emergency doors (in case of)! Would not recommend it.

This tells the story of how chocolate was discovered and made. Makes for an interesting tour & there are quizzes for children to do. Had free choc bar but too sweet for me!

as a team activity, we did the 1 hour workshop of praline making. we had Ruben as trainer, and he was just great. you could see he is very passionate about chocolate making, and could answer all our questions. the workshop itself is very fun to do, and allows you to take what you made with you home. it combined...

We enjoyed the chocolate museum. There was lots to see and read. There may have been an audio tour but we were not told about that which is a shame. Possibly because we had pre paid for our tickets. The story of chocolate is an interesting one and it was presented well at the museum along with things for kids... More

Visited on Sunday overcast day and therefore was very busy! We found the experience a little hot and uncomfortable due to the amount of people allowed in at once. Very informative so long as you can get to read the boards all around. Demonstration at the end looked good but difficult to see as so busy.

Museum is spread out over three small floors and tells you all about the history of chocolate. Once you near the end of the museum there is a demonstration in their kitchen from... More

We found this really interesting and good value for money. The free chocolate at the start was yum! The only improvement suggestion was that the demonstration at the end should have been a bit more interactive and frequent - this didn't spoil the visit we still loved it!

I'm not usually that interested in museums, but this one offers something different and realy gives an interesting take on the history of chocolate, its roots, and how it came to be the delicious treat it is today. Very informative and of course there is a lot of chocolate on offer. The live truffle makiing demonstration was very cool and... More
