All of Ganong's hand-crafted products are made right here in the museum, allowing you to observe our famous hand dippers at work.

Awesome...Heaven on Earth! Very interesting presentation of the history of this chocolate making family dynasty. Loved seeing the box designs for the chocolates throughout the years. There were employees actually dipping chocolate so visitors could see how it was done by hand before the use of automation. This tour was very enjoyable because you were allowed to take your time...

My wife and I were in the area and had heard of the Ganong presence...we drove over from At Andrews (about 15 minutes) and were most pleasantly surprised. The museum is very well done, pleasant staff, a great story and outstanding chocolate treats!!..do not miss it if in the area.

Very interesting history and surprised to find canadian company invented chocolate bar and heart shaped boxes for chocolates. With their rich history though I expected the chocolate to be very fine and it just wasn't. Disappointing.

We found this museum informative and we really enjoyed the film that was shown about the business. Watching the ladies hand dip the specialty chocolates was interesting. They were working it was not just a demo. The best part was eating them. There were several around to try. Bring a bottle of water or buy one there. It was interesting... More

We enjoyed our self directed tour of the Chocloate Museum. Any questions we had, were answered by the young lady at the register. She was very friendly and very professional. Yes, the chocolates samples were plentiful. Very well done.

Had a fantastic time enjoying all of the free samples in the museum. Couldn't believe my eyes! Well worth the price of admission. Also cool to see a person hand dip chocolates!

We stopped here on our way to Nova Scotia from Maine. It is a nice little museum, but I would not recommend it if it means a special trip. Takes a little over an hour to see everything, A big selling point is the free chocolates, all you can eat. However, if I was rating the chocolates, I would have... More
