We visited the museum for about half an hour. The posters on cacao and chocolate are informative and interesting. They are in English with only small plaques in Spanish, which we found weird, after all we are in Nicaragua. We asked about the chocolate workshops, but they are pricey at $19 per person (possibly plus tax), and the staff were quite pushy in trying to get us to make a reservation so we took the workshop at Pure instead (recommended).
The chocolate tastings were tiny and very ungenerous. We ordered a cold chocolate drink, which was tasty but not amazing and came in a cool cup. About a third of the drink was ice, and after tax and tip (added automatically!) the price came to $2.5. We thought it was overpriced, especially since at the parque (main square), a similar drink costs $1. Adding the service at an establishment where you do not sit down, and no service is provided besides preparing the drink, was not appreciated.
All in all, a somewhat disappointing visit. I came away with the feeling that this is more of a business than a labor of love.
