Definitely over-priced experience. Staff unhelpful and not a sign of demos etc. Save your admission (definitely overpriced) to the very small museum (2 rooms) and buy chocolate instead. Will NOT recommend to others!

Very interesting place to spend a few hours. Lots of local history here, describing the Ganong family and their chocolate production. Many chocolate items available for purchase.

Very neat find and was very interesting. The price was reasonable and had to get chocolate to take home of course.

great place to visit for all ages , and well worth the small fee they charge to step back generations of chocolate history , and the tasting at the end is a sheer delight

We enjoyed the museum and took a self guided tour ($10 per adult). It was a fascinating museum, and you even have the chance to see staff on site, making chocolates by hand.

Now it is 10 dollars a person. Displays have not changed much and they allow you one piece of chocolate on the tour. I asked for another and was told no if you want any you have to buy at the gift shop. Both of...More
