This isn’t really a museum, more like a store, with displays about making chocolate and a chance to do a workshop. It’s free to enter in, so worth a few moments. We were interested in the workshop and asked several people working there (in Spanish so no language issues) how to get in line or sign up, but people kept pointing to the workshop table with no information. We stood at the table for about 5-10 minutes but no one came to help. Eventually we gave up.

The four star rating comes from the little silver shop in the back—Goretti’s Jade which had pretty jewelry, made by a family, good prices for gifts, lots of time to browse. 4208-2554 what’s app

I'm a Chef and I love to travel. When I travel I like to learn about the local food & food history. The Choco Museo was a great experience and you learn the complete process of making chocolate form the tree to the finished product. Great information on history as well, from how the Mayans first discovered how to make it to who makes the best chocolate in the world today.

This is a lovely business in the heart of the shopping/restaurant district in Antigua. It has a beautiful interior with wide open spaces for relaxing and sitting and eating as well as areas that are more museum-like, a kitchen area, a chocolate making area, and areas where there are other things for sale. You can just casually walk around or you can sit at a table and order some food or you can take one of the courses they offer. I took both the cooking class AND the chocolate making/history class and both of them were outstanding! I definitely recommend this place as a stop during your time in Antigua.

Huge Chocomuseo with tons of local artisanal gifts and treats to enjoy! However I encountered a snag when the reception mistook my booking for a chocolate class not a cookery one and I missed part of my class, so double check your booking.

My host also just ran off at the end of the class never to be seen again so I felt a awkward after that. Otherwise, it was a great experience that I would love to visit again, especially as this Chocomuseo seemed better developed and decorated than others I've been to.

Oh' what fun I had during this workshop. Our guide Frank/Juan was informative and entertaining. He helped a group of 7-8 strangers become competitive comrades. My final chocolate bar was a hot a$$ mess, but I had lots of fun and laughter!

My friend and I visited the choco museo earlier today and had an amazing experience! We bought the chocolate workshop for 180Q and it was well worth it. At first we had a history lesson about the origin of chocolate - after that the real fun began. Our guide so to speak, was a very nice guy named Orlando. He joked around and was very interactive with us, asking questions about where we were from etc. Orlando made the experience very fun and enjoyable! Such a nice guy
I can only recommend visiting the choco museum!

Kind regards, Frederik

My husband, myself and two kids (8 & 10 yrs old) did the Chocolate class with Orlando and it was awesome! We all enjoyed it and learned a lot. Orlando was just as attentive with our kids as he was with us and the other 3 adults in the class. It was a great 2 hours filled with many laughs and yummy chocolate. You make 3 chocolate drinks and your own chocolate bar. Great way to learn some history and get a treat.

Not the typical museum. The displays are rustic but interesting. I learned a lot about how chocolate is made from the farming of the cocoa beans to the chocolate bar. The highlight are the classes which give you hands on experience in chocolate making. Well worth the 2 hours. There is a restaurant on site that has good food at reasonable prices.
I can recommend this as something to do while in Antigua.

For our last day in Guatemala we decided to take their 2 hour long chocolate making class. Our class was just me and my boyfriend and our amazing teacher Frank. We learned about the history and culture of cocoa andchocolate, joked, laughed and had an unforgettable experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable, extremely kind, friendly, charismatic and a pleasure to be around. After a demonstration of how chocolate is made, we got to make three traditional cocoa drinks and even decorate our own chocolate bar. A great hands on experience and I cannot say enough how much fun we had and how delicious their chocolate is (the bar did not survive the day haha). Great value for money! Absolutely recommend the tour and our guide Frank to anyone looking for a unique experience:)

We came when it first opened in the morning so there was not too much going on. It is a cute place and was able to try the different kinds of chocolate. Would like to come back for a workshop to make chocolate.
