The past and present global story of cocoa and chocolate is portrayed in detail over more than 4,000 m² of floorspace. The diversity of 5,000-years of cocoa's cultural history is shown as well as modern chocolate production from the cocoa bean through to praline chocolate confectionery. Awaiting visitors is a walk-through palm house, information on the natural history of cocoa, exhibits on the pre-Columbian cultures of Central America, a major collection of baroque porcelain and silver and a multitude of historical machines from the period of industrialisation. In the glass-walled production facility and chocolate workshop, visitors can experience how chocolate products are crafted in both mechanised and manual processes. The guided tours tours cover a wide range of topics and can accommodate many different groups and visitors. All of the museum’s exhibition rooms, including the CHOCOLAT Grand Cafe and the CHOCOLAT Shop, have barrier-free access

I really enjoyed my trip here, it wasn't extortionate to get in plus there were a few freebies on the way around! Got the chance to make my own chocolate bar with toppings and there are some beautiful views of the Rhein too!
