Once you cross the border it is less than a mile on the right side of the street. This is an interesting stop on the makers of Ganging chocolates. They are the creators of the heart shaped box of candy given on valentines day. You can try their chocolates and tour their museum. We loved the chicken bone candy and... More

The chocolate museum is housed in the old Ganong chocolates factory. Interpretive panels and videos with a few interactive stops along the way talk about the history of chocolate and of the Ganong company. The highlight of course was all the chocolate samples one could try throughout the museum! We enjoyed our stop here.

Fun place to visit. If you've ever had Ganong chocolates or chicken bones or fruitfuls, this is a must visit! The 2nd best part was free chocolate while discovering how this family helped shape this region. The best part was watching a couple hand-dippers make chocolate look so delicious with quick twists of the wrist and finfers.

Had to check out the chocolate museum. You are greeted with a samples of different chocolates before you come in and are told that throughout the tour you may sample as much as you wish. The tour has a lot of exhibits geared towards children to tell the story of chocolate. More exhibits and a video tell the story and... More

We have visited several chocolate museums in Europe. By comparison this one is very disappointing. There is very little detail on the history of chocolate and the range of chocolates available globally. It's really more about the Ganong family candy business. On the plus side, there are samples of chocolate. But as we visited in the morning, we really were... More

This is a great place to visit when in St Stephen . especially if, like me you are a chocolate lover. Learn the history of chocolate and of the company and the while surrounded by free chocolates and candy. What could be better?!

Really, this should be a free tour. We paid around $30 for 2 adults and 1 senior and it is just a few rooms full of information on the walls. Some things were broken and there were no workers making chocolate. The movie was repeatedly interrupted by the lights going on and off, plus by their loud beeping (alarm maybe?).... More

We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your tour of the Museum. The Chocolate Museum is a non-profit organization, and as such, we charge admission prices. We are a Museum, so most guests spend at least an hour exploring our exhibits, watching videos, speaking with our tour guides, and sampling the free chocolates throughout (that are always monitored...
