Museum isn’t special but the little silver shop in the back is worth a quick visit.
This isn’t really a museum, more like a store, with displays about making chocolate and a chance to do a workshop.

If you have a spare hour, do the chocolate workshop at ChocoMuseo. You get to make a custom chocolate bar with toppings of your choice (first 25 mins). Then you get a little lesson on cocao, history and how chocolate is made. You get to try raw and roasted beans. All in all a good experience, and you can even take little kids. They recommend reservations, but we just walked in at 1000 hrs and they had seats (Q100/person). They also have a little Cafe and ine cream (which you can skip, it is meh).

We arrived just in time for the 45 minute workshop and it was educational as well as fun. Diana was our bilingual instructor who showed patience while fielding questions from our inquisitive group. She even took time to research answers to our more technical questions before moving on to the fun stuff.

The candy making experience taught us a lot about chocolate while allowing us to create a yummy souvenir. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for something both fun and out of the ordinary.

My husband and I did the full class and while it was a tad pricey ( about $20usd each) we really enjoyed it.
The class covered pretty much everything from the steps involved in production, the plants themselves as well as the history.
We made a chocolate bar, drank hot chocolate and tea as well.
I'm not a big fan of sweets as a general rule but I really enjoyed it.
The store itself is fairly small but if you don't have the time for the class it is worth a stop as it is right by the square for a snack and a free sample of cocoa shell tea.

We left the class after 45 minutes rather than endure the rest. The information provided was simplistic and inaccurate. The instructor made immature and crude jokes, at one point coating his fingers with liquid chocolate and referring repeatedly to feces. There are no seats or stools so one stands for the entirety of the experience in an overcrowded classroom. Unfortunately, the chocolate itself is no better than the class.

This class may be suitable to preteens or teens, but I would discourage anyone who enjoys chocolate or accurate information from participating.

Oooh wow :( I feel awful reading your comment. There is one thing in particular that I want to check, think about and assess: How to attend highly heterogeneous groups? We both have to deal with people that show boredom when we provide technical and historical information, and others like you who are already highly educated in cacao culture and are looking for state of the art data. When we are able to spot those peculiarities, we can do a great job for everyone! I wish you would have raised your issues back at the class; and for other readers here: Please make it easier for us to offer you with a special attention. Come to us and share that you'd rather have a private highly technical class! Tell us if you want a chair! Ideally we would spot those thoughts just by a look in your eyes... But hey, we're not there yet in client understanding... So please, help us help you :) To be fair with us, it actually made it more difficult for us that you arrived late to the class. The introduction is a moment when we evaluate expectations. As for the maximum of people we attend in a class, our policy is of 10, which have been OK with the vast majority of participants so far. We're going to keep an eye on it and think if we should tweak the policy with other parameters. Sending you good vibes for the rest of your journey, Clara-Isabel

The tour guide was misleading and told lies to my children about white chocolate,
to the point that they didn't even want to taste it. I mean for god's sake, they sell chocolate bars, including white chocolate so they shouldn't talk bad about their own products. I'm aware that anything in excess is bad, but come on, scare little girls to think that it was poison is pretty stupid. I had to explain my girls that it is ok to eat it . She mentioned that her daughter was a baby she ate a lot of chocolate and now that she is 15 years old she has a lot of acne and is ugly because she ate a lot of chocolate when little. Can you believe that? They sell "the experience" and chocolate and their own people talk bad about chcolate.
I was there almost 5 years ago and had a great experience, but now I can say it has declined a lot and that it is not worth it. There are other places in Antigua that you can try.

I am very sorry to have disappointed you and that your experience was not as great as the one you remembered from your first visit. We have met with the workshop guides to discuss connection with kids, how delicate it is use jokes, irony and stories with them as they might still take the words literally. I'm truly sorry it impacted your daughters and yourself so badly :( We're work in progress, and we' are aiming to get to the best standards. We pride ourselves in paying a lot of attention to the information that we impart and in producing great high cacao content chocolate; it is a pity that this time it was not reflected in that way. We recognize we might have missed something on the training of that teacher and some reorienting is in order... Regards, Clara-Isabel

Flunked my way to a one on one lesson with Raul this morning and it was absolutely brilliant. He was so passionate and enthusiastic that the time flew by and soon I was holding a bar of chocolate made by my own sweet hands. Defo worth doing, Raul is the man!

Did this with our family it was great that they did it in English and Spanish
The tour itself was just OK it was a little wordy.
they ran out of items to make our chocolate bar. We were not each given a mortar and pestle it was difficult to pass back-and-forth to make our chocolate paste.
We had a reservation but there must have been 20 people in our group and I felt it was just too many people.
All in all I would not go back

The ChocoMuseo team regrets that your experience did not meet your expectations at all, unfortunately prior to your reservation request we already had a group signed up for the class and although if we anticipated and gave more time options, perhaps we should have emphasized with more emphasis that with you it would end up being a very large group. Im really sorry for that. It coincided with a holiday in Guatemala (independence day) and the influx of people was much greater than the normal traffic in the store. I sincerely apologize and personally regret that you are not returning in the future because we would like the opportunity to make amends with you and your family. We appreciate your visit and participation. Sincerely.

This was such an unexpected highlight for me and my teenage son in Antigua! Frank not only taught us how to make our own chocolate bar, from fermentation to grinding to setting, but he taught us the longer history of cacao and it's relationship to the region. He made the entire experience so much fun--we didn't even realize how much we were learning! I didn't understand how the experience could take 2 hours, but the time flew by and we enjoyed every minute. Plus we had some amazing chocolate, cacao tea and Mayan Chocolate drink. Worth every penny!

Fun low key activity. Joseline was charming and knowledgeable. The history and cultural aspects were fascinating! The group got to participate in some of the steps from seed to cocoa. So much fun! Nice way to take a break fr a hectic itinerary. You can also buy the chocolate fruit at the shop! nom nom nom Highly recommend.

So fun! The girl who taught our class was so cute and energetic. We learned a ton, it was very hands on, and just an easy afternoon activity that anyone could enjoy. They were also super accommodating and helpful. Definitely recommend!
