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

The entrance was very expensive so we decided not to go in, but you should definitely try some chocolates in the market, very delicious and well-made.

Definitely worth a visit for adults or children. Plenty of free chocolate. Good blend of education, demonstration, and display.

You should skip this museum and go straight to the cafe. Museum entry is 11 euros and it feels very thinly spread and not enough content to make it a worthwhile trip. The cafe on the other hand was amazing! Service was not that great...More
