This is a fun, educational and delicious experience for all ages. You will not regret spending time doing this. I can't recommend it more. You learn all about chocolate. The what, where and how of the chocolate bean. The history of chocolate and best of all, you get to make your own chocolate bars. What a place!

While in Antigua, Guatemala for a week of volunteer vacationing, six of us from our homestay decided to go to the ChocoMuseo as one of several side trips. It was a rousing success! Pablo, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, as well as highly entertaining! His English is excellent, making it easy to follow the amazing history of cacao from its use beginning over 6,000 years ago to the delights we enjoy today! Tastings included chocolate "tea," spicy chocolate somewhat like the Spanish conquistadores would have sampled, as well as our own processed chocolate. The hands-on opportunity to actually roast the beans, grind them and make one's own chocolate would make this a great activity for a family with older children. There is a reasonably small chocolate/cacao-themed gift shop as well as a cafe, which, sadly we didn't have time to visit. . . . next year!

This is a fun place to visit. The displays about the history of chocolate are interesting. While the price of the various chocolate bars, etc, are not cheap, they are delicious!

They offer classes and a little cafe.

We took the choclate making class and had a great time. Two hours later we had a better knowledge and appreciation of all things cocoa. Eat what you make and buy more. DonQ

There is a small museum about how they make coco, which is interesting. The demonstration on how to make chocolate was pretty routine and overpriced. It seems like the focus of the museum is to sell you chocolate. They have a nice cafe in a courtyard - the hot chocolate is amazing!
