  • The tour is at your own pace but it was interesting. There was lots of chocolate to taste along the way too.  more »
  • We’ve been to the Callier in Switzerland and had hoped it would be similar to this, it was not. The kids were entertained (5 yrs and 7 yrs) as they had to find the clues in each area and match the sti...  more »

  • I would highly recommend this self guided and informative tour. You can eat as much chocolate as you care (though don’t try to take the freebies home please). If you’re bringing children, I would encourage them to do the kids activity—it will help keep them engaged while learning! The staff at the praline making demonstration were friendly and engaging. This is the kind of place you can spend a fairly short amount of time or even hours if you want to read all the printed info. There is also a short movie about chocolate as well as another smaller video about the societal impact of the cacao bean. I’m not sure I’d go back again but I would definitely encourage friends to go. Worth the money spent!
  • The exhibits are interesting, but it was hard to appreciate anything with the endless crowds pouring through the place. One room was a little smaller than the others with only one entrance,, so when we tried to leave, we had to wait for several minutes while about 20 people filed into the room. We also could not watch the chocolate-making demonstration (except on the overhead TV) because the room was too crowded. The museum would be smart to limit the number of concurrent visitors, perhaps 50 at one time. With so many people in such small rooms, it's hard to give real attention to the exhibits.
  • Was so much to read. Was well done but not my thing at all. Found it boring, even if there was free all you can eat chocolate. The live demonstration looked interested but very crowded. The video was decent, but learnt a lot. Wish this was before everything you had to read.
  • Very good! It has a nice explanation about the history of chocolate and how it's done today. The way up and the way down use the same stairs so it can be difficult if it is too crowded. There is chocolate to taste during the visit. In the end we can admire chocolate sculptures and answer a quizz about our chocolate preferences. In the very end, there is a demonstration of how chocolate is made and a simple idea that can be done at home. We can taste the chocolate made during the demonstration. The staff were very nice. There is a shop in the end.
  • Not bad if you have time to kill. Multiple floors but not large. We got free chocolate when we bought tickets. There were a few samples of chocolate in the museum that you could get out of a dispenser. At the end there is a live chocolate making demonstration which is pretty good.
