Overview

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

No visit to Koln should miss the Chocolate Museum. This place oozes chocolate and if you do not have a sweet tooth enter at your peril as you will on leaving! Having visited the Cadbury Chocolateworld in Bournville, England the opportunity to sample this place...More

Chocolate museum.... history.... the two don’t seem to go hand in hand, however this museum in Cologne is surprisingly factual. It gives a very, very detailed background on the history of chocolate, it’s discovery & uses in history, alongside the modern uses through history!

With limited time on the river cruise we called in. Many of the other s in the queue seemed to be buying numerous tickets. So we just went to the shop. It would have been good if another person had been put on the tills.

Brought visiting family and tried to do the tour. Took the "Chocolate Train" to get there, but upon arrival - 45 minutes before closing - was informed that they close the tour one hour early before they close the chocolate sales area.More
