I really wanted to write a good review for this chocolate museum, as the actual chocolate from Modica is great. However it was pretty disappointing. I have to question whether it was worth the walk up the stairs, let along the 3 Euros for entry.

If you are a tourist and your main aim when visiting Modica is to visit this museum, do not waste your time or money. I would however say that Modica has alot else going on like the old town and some great restaurants. So if you just going to pop into the museum while seeing other attractions, then do so as there are a couple of interesting / historical facts about chocolate in general - but nothing you could not find on Google.

There really isn't too much to see. It only cost 2.50 to enter but it isn't worth any more. There are three rooms and chocolate figures. Not much of the information is in English and it's not actually all the easy to find. Nice people throughout the corridor pointed out the way.

Thought we'd have a look at the chocolate models before tasting the real stuff!! €2.50 pp to enter. A very helpful man who spoke good English showed us in. Some interesting sculptures - the horse's head was my favourite but I kept thinking what a waste of chocolate!! The map of Italy needed a lot more models on it as there seemed a vast sprawl of brown mess and not a lot else! Not high up on my list of museums!

This fairly new museum (opened April 2014), housed in a corner of the "Palacultura Modica", is a grievous disappointment. It features a series of information posters charting the manufacture of chocolate which may well be interesting if you can read Italian, but there's no concession for us poor monoglots, not even a summary. This is surprising, given the obvious global reach of chocolate. There are two rooms, one which features an enormous horizontal relief map with a few architectural highlights of Europe (leaning tower of Pisa, for example), done in chocolate, or chocolate covered plaster of Paris, already showing some signs of distress. There are cabinets of gold medals won for bravery in chocolate making, or somesuch (who knows?). There are also some chocolate sculptures (faces, figures, teddy bears, animals) and then a smaller room with more sculptures. I make it sound more interesting than it is. The best of these is a fine rhino, whose horn sadly has been snapped off but laid aside (perhaps glass cases might have been a wise idea for these rather perishable exhibits). There are some display cases featuring chocolate bar designs. There's a bowl with chocolate for tasting, although the direct line of sight to the toilets discourages. In short, it is not worth the 2.50 Euros admission charge. Worse, it is an opportunity to celebrate the unique history of chocolate making in this area completely squandered.

Fortunately for us, the fella supposed to be taking the admission fee (2.5 Euro each) had just nipped off for a loo break.....we couldn`t see anyone to pay, had a look and were back out before his return.
Basically, a couple of rooms with some extremely tired looking globs of dark brown stuff....not much else of interest!!!!!

My wife and I visited Modica on account of its famous and delicious chocolate. We sampled chocolate in a couple of places. Then decided to visit the chocolate museum we’d read about.
We managed to find the building that housed it. But to our dismay, it was up 56 steps (several flights) and no lift! Totally inaccessible for my wife.
Why house a museum for one of the core activities in Modica on the floor of a building that renders it inaccessible to many? There should either be a lift; or it should be housed somewhere on the ground floor.

The pride of Modica, it’s chocolate, is well displayed with a historical overview of their chocolate prices and a spectacular map of Italy and many statues made from chocolate. The displays speak for themselves so no English translation needed.

This thriving Baroque town Is famous for its chocolate as is for its architecture. We wandered along the Main Street where we sampled the traditional glass of choc. There is a cute video on display for an advert in which an American pilot, suspended from a tree by his parachute, tries to persuade a little girl to run for help with the offer of a Hershey bar. She shakes her head and silently shows him a bar of Bonajuto. Interesting to find out that the art of making choc was introduced by the Spanish who learned from the Aztecs of Central America in the 16th century. Its still produced traditionally without heat or coco butter so it has a grainy crunchy texture that led to its name as glass chocolate

Small museum, not much information in English, done in 10 mins, might be ok for kids as fun to see the chocolate things but honestly not crucial for a visit

The museum is small and somewhat disappointing. It has only three rooms, only one of which explains chocolate making. The others have carvings of chocolate such as a map of Italy.
