Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

While we were handed an English version of the tour and told that all the displays had English translations- it was not the case.
It was not interesting nor informative - you could learn more about the process of making chocolate by googling and reading on the internet for 5 minutes.
I would recommend that you spend your money at a delicious chocolatier instead of visiting this poor excuse of a museum .

The museum was situated out of the centre of town and was a bit out from the rest of the attractions. However, it was reasonably priced to have a look around, and even though it was a small museum there was a vast amount of information (mostly in French except for a few panels in English and Spanish) on the he history of chocolate and how chocolate is made. The visit started with a free bag of chocolate buttons and then continued with a short video which was in Spanish and French and for those who spoke english they were given a sheet of paper which explained what was happening in the film. During the visit we got to see the small factory on site and at the end we got a free sample of hot chocolate. There was also a shop at the end which sold a variety of chocolate products. Is ideal for a morning activity as wasn't too long.

Small museum, a bit off located, not expensive, free chocolate buttons and drinks. Starts with a video and then you can look at old school machinery. Lovely shop.

Very small, but very interesting. Not expensive and free chocolate buttons and drink. Starts with a video, then can look at machinery and chocolate memorabilia. Best shop ever once you are finished. Some of the best chocolate I have eaten, though not cheap.

The museum is located in the outskirts of Biarritz so it took us half an hour to get there. By foot, in high pace. We received a paper, broschure in english describing what we were to be presented for in a film that showed the history of chocolate, from the harvest to the consumer products. The language was in French and it was impossible to follow by reading from the brochure due to the darkness, of course. After the film we walked around the museum, and became enlightened of the processing of the raw materials and how it was processed and its development to todays' standard and products.
