We enjoyed our little stop here. A very friendly member of staff welcomed us and told us about the little marzipan gallery downstairs. We had look round and then she gave us tastes of 3 different types of marzipan - there was no pressure to...More

We love chocolate and marzipan as a family. This was a great place to stop and take photos and get samples. They even let you sit and (for a modest fee) paint and decorate your own marzipan dessert. Big hit with family to close out...More

The Museum was a gem and real treat for Marzipan lovers. I love the Orange flavour. Go down stairs to see all the pieces of art done with marzipan

called into this museum in early December 2017 as it sounded interesting. wasnt much to see. just a small shop and a small marzipan painting area. theres an old cafe attached to it, which was busy. overall okay, unless you are into marzipan.

Enjoyed watching three seconds of an artist hand painting marzipan in the corner and another five seconds admiring the figures on display. Enjoyed being told by my private tour guide that the molds used today are even still sometimes more than 100 years old. Enjoyed...More
