We were in the area to visit the Wax Museum, which is only 5 minutes away, and decided to visit here, as we had Paris Pass. It was surprisingly enjoyable, and we found it more fun than the Wax Museum. There is a sheet for children to complete with stickers as they go round, and they get a chocolate lolly if they complete it. There is a demonstration with chocolate and some samples to try. The shop at the end of the trip sells the obvious, but also has several different hot chocolates to buy, and drink there - which we did. The Spanish hot choc was totally lovely. Staff on duty were really helpful and friendly - we enjoyed the visit and would recommend it.

It's different and interesting but if you're interested in reading facts about chocolate. Funny enough it's not really for kids as there's more reading to do. There's a short demonstration of chocolate making. Two types of tickets, basic and premium-this includes special hot chocolates. You do not have to get this as you can buy the hot chocolate for 3/4 euros if you really want.
So verdict-ok and interesting but not as fun.

Cool to see the history of chocolate- we were unaware of the history of it, and was pretty cool to see how it was brought to France- cool to see if you have Paris Pass

We visited primarily due to this being an inclusion on the Paris Pass and were glad we visited. The museum has a startling display of chocolate related artifacts and information and provided great insights into the development of the chocolate industry from South America to the present day. Excellent displays were supplemented by excellent information in French and English. Probably the disappointing aspect was the 'chocolatier' who provided an unenthusiastic demonstration of the art of making chocolate. When you exit you can purchase different styles of chocolate drinks, hot milk with a cube of chocolate from different ethnic recipes, and to me this was a highlight. We purchased three different styles and the chilli style was the most interesting - I may never look at a chocolate drink in quite the same way again - it was a taste experience. So be courageous and get out of your comfort zone and try something different!

You never know about odd little museums, and this was a great surprise. There is simply everything you ever wanted to know about chocolate, from how it's made to how it's packaged, by whom, where and why. At times, the information could be overwhelming. English explanations are well done; although the demo is in French, it is easy to understand. The opportunity to sample different types of chocolate was very enlightening as well as delicious, and the pastilles in the gift shop were very reasonably priced. I went back the next day to buy more!
