Just a divine little courtyard to sit in and indulge ;) mmmm chocolate truffles! I had the staff pick my three which made for s fun surprise. The posters showing the description of the making process was interesting but only took about 15min.

The chocolate making class was a blast! I highly recommend that if you like cooking, and chocolate and a bit of history, you take this class. It is 2 hours very well spent.

This is really more of a shop than a museum (although there is a small museum section) but is still worth a visit if you like chocolate. There are plenty of samples of chocolates for you to try and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I felt that the chocolate was very expensive when compared to other premium chocolate.

The ChocoMuseo kept us busy for a few hours on a slow day and we were very happy to learn about the full chocolate making process, mixed in with Mayan and Guatemalan history. The part where we actually got to make some chocolate was great fun and so was perusing the gift shop (chocolate condoms anyone?)

What a great idea to include a museum and attract customers. An entire room is dedicated to the history and growing of cacao and making of chocolate. At the museum on Calle 4 there is both a sales room for everything possible made from cacao (including cacao tea) and a room for a cafe. The sales folk all speak English.... More

I took part in one of the chocolate making workshops last week, with Edwin as our teacher. It was great fun and I learned a huge amount about the history of chocolate - including how the Mayans drank it and how it changed over the years to become what it is today. We made different types of chocolate tea, then... More

I am a chocolate snob. The quality of the chocolate is very good but not excellent and certainly not worth the price. Also, it is not even close to being a museum. I think if you take the workshop it would be a great learning experience and one could call that an interactive museum experience.

Perhaps “museum” is a misnomer. Take away the chocolate, coffee and food sales, and there are few things to classify this as a museum. True, Hotel Casa Santo Domingo and Santo Domingo Church & Monastery offer a variety of museums featuring preserved relics, but this “museo” should be visited only if you want to buy overpriced chocolate or food/beverages.

This is a great activitiy if you want to spend a couple of hours having fun an meeting new people, if you take one of their workshops you'll have lots of fun, you'll lear about the history of Cacao (chocolate) and you'll be hands on making your own. It was lots of fun and the chocolate you'll make and taste... More
