I was tired from traveling and decided to do something a little less strenuous which ended up being a great decision. The tour isn't that long, but it takes you all the way through the history of chocolate from the Olmecs with xocolatl to the modern supply chain and the problems of sugar being an ingredient. Lots of historical artifacts related to chocolate production and a room full of sculptures made from chocolate that are 9 years old and still standing. Tony was my guide and he was everything; he answered all my questions and clearly has a passion for the subject. They hand make tons of chocolates there and give you 10% off everything if you take the tour. They also have a wine pairing version for a few dollars more which would make the 7 special chocolate tasting pieces even better. There's a little cafe that serves Starbucks style eats with great air conditioning and comfy seats so you can snack while you wait for the tour.

Prior to our tour we visited the cafe for lunch and the food was amazing! My husband and I had purchased the tour with the wine and chocolate pairing and we enjoyed that after lunch and before the tour started….fun experience! My daughters each received a mug with the tour package we purchased. The chocolates and desserts in the case were so beautiful and we can say delicious too. Dave took us on our museum tour which lasted approximately 45 min, he was great! Very knowledgeable and funny. We all learned a lot about the history of chocolate. The 8 samples and hot chocolate we sampled were all delicious. We purchased some of the bars we tried to take home with us. So many unique flavors! If you like chocolate you should check this place out we would highly recommend taking the tour and having lunch before or after, what a fun place!!!!

Very pleasant venue, where we were initially able to enjoy a freshly made panini and a cold drink, followed by an in-house sweet treat - all very tasty and reasonably priced! This was followed up by a tour of the museum with our knowledgeable guide, Tony.

The tour was interesting, with Tony being informative, humourous and inclusive with the mixed group we were part of (a couple, some friends and a family with younger children).

After learning about the history of chocolate, we were then treated to samples from around the globe - giving an opportunity to try different chocolates and flavours.

Would highly recommend to anyone in the International Drive area!

This was a really expensive visit. 2 adult museum tickets, 2 small Gelato, 3 small pieces of candy, and one chocolate bar totaled $73. The kid behind the counter at the cafe part was annoyed that we were ready to order (there was no other customers waiting). He was on his phone (social media) and made us wait for him to casually finish up his leisure phone scroll to help us. He was then very short and cut me off while I was actively ordering to ask "anything else?" Again his nonverbal ques portrayed that he was irritated that we were there. I feel like this is pretty crappy when we are dropping $73 in one visit. Positive: Dave the tour guide was really funny & informative. I liked the tour and the museum part. Pretty sure this would not be good for little kids though. The chocolate tasting was a joke. They provided a cup that was smaller than the average 1 oz medicine cup. It had small slivers of 4-5 different chocolate flavors and then a 1/2 piece of one of the regular chocolate rounds (less than .5 oz). Also, gave us less than 1 oz of hot chocolate. Again, Dave was awesome. The chocolate tasting was a COMPLETE RIP OFF. $18 to provide maybe $1 worth of chocolate? The house made chocolate is beautiful and well made but tastes average. The Gelato tasted really great and I'd get that again. I feel like the quality for the Gelato was worth the price 100%. This place is way more expensive when compare to others I have been too. Chocolate bars averaged $7-$10

Well worth the stop to check out this museum. Tours are given on the hour and you will learn the history of chocolate, view old time equipment and amazing chocolate sculptures along with seeing where chocolate is made in house and have a taste testing. If you are fortunate enough to have Tony as your guide you will not only experience his vast knowledge but also his wonderful sense of humor! Wait until after the tour to buy from the shop because all tour participants receive a 10% discount from anything in the shop.

We visited for the tour, to learn about the history of chocolate, and it was really interesting. Dave, the guide who took us through, was very knowledgeable, fun, and answered all our questions. It was great to see the old candy-making equipment, and to take pictures of the beautiful chocolate sculptures. We also sampled several kinds of chocolates on the tour.
We saw a chocolatier making truffles, and had painting the shiny finishes.
We also ate the cafe, excellent food and drinks. And dessert? Fabulous choices of candies, little cakes, or gelato.
This place is a real gem! You can dine at the cafe, no tour, or pick up treats to go, or take the tour and do it all. There is also chocolate from around the world to buy, wines, tee shirts, etc. I would highly recommend Chocolate Museum for an interesting and delicious afternoon.

This is a surprising gem in the middle of a strip mall! The lunch was delicious with a varied interesting menu. Dave the tour guide dispensed stories of historical facts and events with energy and humor. To end it with a chocolate tasting then a visit to the store was perfect. A fun family outing!

Definitely a delicious treat for all senses! As soon as you step in you already smell the chocolate and see in the display case beautiful confections. We opted to do the tour and had Jessi as our guide. She was very informative and also had a lot of fun with my kids making it very entertaining and enjoyable. Seeing the in house chocolatier was really interesting to see. We also enjoyed the selection of samples provided. Definitely a hidden treasure.

We planned on going to this chocolate museum on short notice and are so glad we did. Before our tour we did the fondue sampler and it was a delightful. Enjoyed it with smooth jazz playing in the background.

Tony was our tour guide and was fantastic. He is super nice, knowledgeable and has good humor. The tour was about 45 minutes and then you are left with the hard choices of which chocolate to purchase before leaving.

I made the mistake of not purchasing chocolate they sell there that we tried on the tasting tour. Their prices are very reasonable and I highly suggest you purchase your chocolate there as opposed to "finding a cheaper deal" elsewhere.

The pictures attached are the chocolate bars we sampled that weren't made there. We also bought a couple items they made and they were just as good as when we tried them on the tour.

If you are in Orlando for any reason, I highly recommended stopping by here!

I did the fondue for two and it was fun as well as super tasty. Our guide sort of seemed like he would rather be doing something else yet he was knowledgeable. The tour and fondue we $40/2 which I thought was a bit pricey. We bought chocolate covered bacon and it was meh. The chocolate is high quality and the price reflects that.
