This small museum doesn't take long to look around, but there is a great demonstration and several points you can try different chocolate types. Plan to spend an hour or so here, and you'll be grateful you did.

Very welcoming little museum with live presentation on the history and production process of chocolate. Be aware and warned: you will never ever eat bad chocolate anymore ;-)

Once again, the staff made the place shine. There were many informative, fun displays to look at but also interact with. The staff was helpful, and gave us many pointers, plus the audio guide made the visit fascinating. BUT, the best part took a session with a master chocolate maker. We learned all about the chocolate making process, and then... More

I suppose my first mistake was believing the hours of operation were 10:00-5:00 as published via various other travel and crowd sourcing sites. Apparently, TripAdvisor has it listed from 10:00-4:30, did not check this site prior to being turned away at the museum. We arrived at 4:33 pm hoping to take a quick tour of the museum before it closed... More

Very small but informative museum. The demonstration was very interesting and made the art of chocolate making look simple! You get to taste the chocolates and there are dispensers with different chocolate buttons in. Beware the cocoa mass and the cocoa butter! The biscuits with the running chocolate is a must just delicious.

We arrived at ten, there is a show that explains how they make bonbons and the history of chocolate. The best is that you can try all. Super!

My son and I visited on a Sunday morning in March just as they had opened (10:00am) and as we walked in we asked if they were open because we were the only ones there. The night prior (March 11) must have been a special event as the line was out the door and reach the main square. The "museum"... More
