All of Ganong's hand-crafted products are made right here in the museum, allowing you to observe our famous hand dippers at work.

We enjoyed our self directed tour of the Chocloate Museum. Any questions we had, were answered by the young lady at the register. She was very friendly and very professional. Yes, the chocolates samples were plentiful. Very well done.

Had a fantastic time enjoying all of the free samples in the museum. Couldn't believe my eyes! Well worth the price of admission. Also cool to see a person hand dip chocolates!
