Overview

Located in what used to be the original Ganong candy factory, The Chocolate Museum offers an interactive way to learn about candy making in St. Stephen - a tradition that has lasted over a century. Explore the history of the Ganong family, who still run the company, and the wonders of chocolate with our hands-on exhibits, interactive computer displays, historic chocolate boxes, and antique candy-making equipment. All of Ganong's hand-crafted products are made right here in the museum, allowing you to observe our famous hand dippers at work. Come to the Chocolate Museum to see why St. Stephen is known as "Canada's Chocolate Town".

It is too expensive for what is there to see and the little "gift" you get if you buy something at the store is ridiculous.

There's a car park right outside, but also parking on the street. There are sample chocolates strategically placed around the exhibition. There are short films of the manufacturing process and recollections of the family members. It is genuinely very interesting. The adjacent chocolate shop is...More

When you in or near St. Stephen do stop by the Chocolate Museum. It is hard to resist chocolate and learning about the history and tasting some is a bonus here.

A short visit thru the world of chocolate and the Ganong family. The museum is small and filled with plates of chocolate you can taste. You can eat all the chocolate you want during the tour.
