The place to go if you want to learn about the cocoa bean and the history of chocolate. The teacher was fun and the end result was our very own chocolate bar and workshop certificate. very cool!

“Educational and fun.......”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I used to live near the Museo and I can tell you first hand that I used to go there often and invite those people who had never been to try it. The breakfast brunch was very tasty and affordable, including fresh fruit juices, coffee, and the cacao tea, which is my favorite. My friends were always pleasantly surprised as well. And, it is free to visit there, not like the moron who wrote about it and lied; and they used to give you free samples of the chocolate before you would purchase. Anyway, another great attraction was the hotel that is connected, with all the great Art Deco furniture and light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, etc. Don't believe everything you read in reviews, go and see it for yourself, this place is great!

“Educational Family Fun”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I visited ChocoMuseo, Granada, with my husband and two children, aged 6 and 8. We learned a lot about chocolate and had a lot of fun, too. Our teacher was enthusiastic and very funny and kept children and adults alike interested and involved. We learned about the evolution of the hot chocolate beverage from the Mayans to the Aztecs to the Spanish/Europeans and made our own samples of each. Although the kids didn't care for the taste (not nearly as sweet as Swiss Miss!), they weren't the least bit disappointed because they were having fun. We also made our own chocolate bars and the kids enjoyed the freedom to add their own flavors and special ingredients. We took lots of photos in our crazy chocolate-making aprons and chef hats and didn't stop smiling and laughing for the whole two hours!

“Good experience”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We took a tour in the chocolate museo and in was a quite good experince. The staff was quite good and the around $20 for the tour was not expensive for the tour. The reason why they do not get one star one is that they also have a shop on the mainstreet (la Calzada) which we visited first. The chocolate shop sold together with their quality chocolate cheap back packs in leather!!!! and different kinds of pottery. It was diffecult to see the connection and it actually looked like the marked. Only by luck we came by their chocolate museo and what a luck.

I am glad you had a good experience at ChocoMuseo, but am confused by your other comments. Yes, we do also have a chocolate shop on the main pedestrian street, La Calzada. It is unfortunate that you were not offered an explanation of the connection between our non-edible items and our house made bean to bar chocolate. All of our non-edible artisanal products our made specifically for ChocoMuseo and all have a cacao or chocolate theme, with the exception of a small number of hand made Nicaraguan candies that we believe complement our chocolate products. I hope that clears this up for you and other guests.

“Chocolate making class”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very informative, enthusiastic and happy teacher. Walk out with 2 bags of great chocolate which you make yourself - $19 may be a little too expensive but no regrets.
